Keeping the positive mindset and creativity flow means using the time purposely.
If you are anything like me, you must be devouring Instagram lives, podcasts and workshops.
Due to Covid-19, the last 2 months of isolation gave me an opportunity to enjoy the things I would
normally miss due to a busy wedding photography season - from learning with artists and business owners, keeping healthy with sports enthusiasts, all to the enjoying live concerts
from the coziness of my living room.
Sharing knowledge and experience became incredibly accessible
for destination wedding photographers and even tough I admire creatives
for doing live social media videos, I find myself being awkward to an idea of doing the same.
Call me old-fashioned but, as a people person, conversing with myself and a phone
does not do the charm.
Despite my weirdness, I simply couldn’t reject an invitation to participate in
Najla Nabil's project ‘In Conversation With Photographers’.
We chatted about how artists sometimes struggle with certain stigmas, about my love of natural light, challenges of being a destination wedding photographer and how I actually entered the wedding world.
This was truly an ice-breaker thanks to Najla who pushed me out of my comfort zone.
I promise I will work on my awkwardness and try to get “out there” more often, maybe create some inspiring and educational material together with behind the scene videos,
but until then, check out our photography conversation.
