One thing I love about working in photography is the range of jobs I get and the people that I meet. For example, last week I worked at a corporate event for NHS England, snapping photos of smartly dressed men and women passionately discussing the country's healthcare. Tomorrow, I'll be working with Professor Jiggett of Yan Tan Tethera creating portraits in a cabin.
Meeting people from all walks of life is really interesting to me and a great learning experience. As a photographer - a spectator, really - I observe and document the lives of others. I get to see how people are contributing to society in different ways and the various strengths and weaknesses they have, and well, I guess what makes people people.
Anyway, I've got off track a little. Last week I worked a corporate event for the NHS which I'm hoping will be the first of many. The event went very smoothly, aside from some initial difficulty with harsh lighting (very bright spotlights in some places and very dark in others) and everyone was a great sport. I was thinking it must be pretty strange being at a corporate event and having a photographer tiptoeing around and I did get a few shy glances every now and then but even so, everyone was really polite. Looking forward to the next one.
Tomorrow, I shall be working with Yan Tan Tethera! More to come soon.
I'm the founder of Tinska and aside from photography, I spend my time practicing yoga, reading anything from Beat poetry to Science Fiction and running around after a cheeky puppy.
