Just had a moment of excitement when told by my boss that when we finish the project we’re working on (and have been working on for what seems like forever…) we can all have some time off to recover….
Which is when I realised that my photography has been so much on the back burner recently that I might as well not have had the business at all!
Real life, 9-5 jobs taking over what is a real passion of mine and something that allows me to be creative….
In actual fact my time (what there has been of it!) has been utilised making arrangements for the upcoming portfolio update shoots, and what has really kept me going through the long hours at work, has been the thought that there is a (flash)light at the end of the tunnel!
But its the enjoyment of the photography that means I don’t think I’ll ever take it up as my only job. The pressure to deliver and perform would, I think, remove a lot of the enjoyment for me…
Don’t get me wrong, the pressure to deliver to clients now is a force that drives me to be the best I can be, and present the best product I can, but I know that I can pick and choose the clients I want to work with and know that my bills are paid by the 9-5, leaving me free to actually enjoy my second job.
And not many people can say that, I don’t think!!!
