Too Live what you love

It’s never easy to stand here and watch a virus bring the world to its knees.

Globally many struggle to keep their head above water so the through of losing one’s lively hood provokes a sense of panic.

I have always considered myself lucky, lucky to have been found by photography and the journey it has taken me on and lucky to have been able to make a living from what I love to do.

This virus has taken so much from so many and in a lot of cases, more than I could ever imagine.

For me it’s about what lay ahead, the assignments and events that filled my calendar from now until the end of the year and beyond. That is all gone, the experiences, people and of course, the financial benefits.

My back stop was the journalism work that I have enjoyed for so long, and even now, that seems to be under threat.

While nothing seems safe and I may lose what I need to feed my bubble, I still have what I Love to do, to think, create and capture. It’s what got me where I am today and will help me through these challenging times.

Hats off to all of you who have managed to keep it together so far and I hope we all come out the other side better for the experience.
