Hi! I'm John and I'm a photographer based in the UK and have been working professionally for about a year. I recently quit my job as a barista to pursue my passion full time. Scary! Not really, it's the best decision I've made. Don't worry, this isn't going to be a super in depth photography related blog (well maybe sometimes). It's more of a space for creatives, big thinkers and entrepreneurs. I think we all have a lot in common and perhaps have value to bring to each other's lives and the world.
From the successes, to the challenges. To the random thoughts I have about my industry and business in general. To how YOU can better enjoy succeeding (whatever that looks like) and creating in your industry. I'll cover it all. I certainly don't claim to be an expert but hopefully as these posts go on, we can learn and grow together. My aim is to be a happy, fulfilled human and I think this is something we would all like to achieve. Hopefully, we can get there together!
You might be wondering, why a blog? I know I am. I'm definitely late to the party!
Honestly, I'm writing this for me more than anything. I've found writing to be very therapeutic but also, I love to read. I've read every smart thinking/self help book you can imagine and through that, I've learned a lot about myself. So, if one person reads this and gains some insight or value then it's a success and if not well it's good to put positivity out into the world regardless of the outcome.
If you got this far, thank you! And if no one is reading this then great, I have somewhere new to write my shopping lists.
Goodbye for now, John.
