2018 has seen me come full circle with photography. I remember maybe 10 years ago when I dreamed of opening my own gallery and traveling Australia taking photographs for a living. It was a big driver in my life and photography has always been a creative outlet.
Well I have done that now, for six years I ran my own gallery space, traveled right around Australia in all its magnificence taking photographs with my family, it was amazing.
In the middle of 2018 I decided to close my gallery and step away from photography as a profession, to spend more time with my family and try to somehow get the feeling back that I have lost with this medium. I am pretty cool with it though, I learnt a lot over the period of the business, mostly about myself but also what it takes to run a photography business full time.
The photography will continue, as a side hobby, with less pressure and more for enjoyment. Photographs will still be for sale if they are really wanted but for me it has to be about the love I have for photography. The chase, the capture, that feeling when something really special happens out in the wild.
