Sydney, August 2016.
Last week I was in Sydney once more. I helped my sister move house, met up with friends, and did a lot of shooting, both for work and for pleasure. Since I've transitioned to full-time freelancing, I've fallen in love with photography again. I've never hated photography, but something feels different now. Sure, being in a different city helps with that excitement and novelty, but I've been to Sydney many times before and it wasn't until this year that I've really felt that spark for photography return. I'm excited about where my photography is taking me—I'm not sure where exactly that is, and I can't really describe it or put a name to it, I just know it's taking me somewhere. I love that I'm exploring within my photography again, and these days instead of only ever taking the camera out to shoot for clients or for “work”, I have it with me more often and it's reminded me how I came to be here in the first place. This is how my relationship with photography began: snapping things that pique my interest, even if those things may seem totally mundane to others. It's nice to be back here, to feel giddy like how I did when all this started.
The cute little lady in the photos below is my talented friend and fellow Brisbane lens wrangler, Annie, who happened to be in Sydney at the same time I did and spent lots of time adventuring and photo-ing with me.
