When was first commissioned to produce a photograph, I worried that I would lose both my integrity as an artist and passion for the art. I had spoken with professionals who had once loved photography, but had reduced it to a simple nine to five, and no longer found pleasure in it.
Since working as a freelance photographer over the last few years, on the contrary, the experience has sharpened my images.
I was recently asked if I would photograph a friend’s daughter. This was my favourite image from the afternoon together.
