Eat, sleep, shoot, repeat

Right now is the busiest that I have ever been with photography, thinking about photography, re-touching and planning shoots and It feels really good! 

I guess most people don't really understand what it's like to be a photographer and they think it's all just clicking away taking snaps, but it really couldn't be further from the truth. The most surprising part I find, is that actually taking photos is probably the smallest part of the job!  The majority of my time is taken up in planning and arranging shoots, or gaining access to subjects and doing admin.  It's not as glamorous as first meets the eye!

This is an image from one of my latest shoots. It took a fraction of a second to record the image, about 3 hours to do the whole shoot and about 6 hours to re-touch this one image and it's still not 100% finished.
