When self-doubt starts to give way to self-realisation

web | blog | facebook

I’ll be honest the further I progress in my photographic career the more self doubt I develop. I’m plagued with more indecision now than ever before, I try to be honest in my work yet feel somehow diluted and broken down. I surround myself with a strong team in an attempt to mask my own feeling of being one step from the edge of a cliff.
Perhaps this is the price I pay for my art, I don’t ask for people to like my work, I just want to create something of worth. Without that my whole purpose is meaningless.
Then maybe understanding this is all part of the process, perhaps the doubt shows that I care.

Very first peeks from yesterdays shoot with the team. If ever a behind the scenes video should have been made yesterday was it. We had more plot twists and emotional highs & lows than most tv dramas.

Despite the images showing otherwise, the weather was what can only be described as challenging.

A hint at one of the finals from my shoot a while ago.
Working with three uber talented MUA’s who just finished topping out their training at the Cassie Lomas Academy.
Luckily enough Meg (the make up artist) and myself are teaming up again this Friday back at the academy for a rather interesting concept. Looking forward to it for sure.

Bowens via 70cm beauty dish where the catch lights would suggest. Big old reflector providing fill from camera right.
