For so long I was scared. Scared to tell people I wanted to be a photographer. Seems silly now, but I remember a time when my fear was almost paralyzing.
It was too personal, too close to my heart and I was afraid of what others would think. What if no one likes my work? What if I fail? The only thing I knew for sure was picking up a camera made me deliriously happy, in a way I couldn’t quite explain or understand. Holding my camera gave me the permission to explore intimidating area’s and talk with people I would have normally overlooked. Pushing me in way’s I could have never anticipated and forcing me out of my comfort zone.
Being a photographer has made me a better person. For this, I will always be thankful!
