I’ve been thinking a fair bit about where I want to be in the near future. What I want to be. Yet, the more I think about it, the more I don’t know.
With a firm foot in the door with photography across Manchester, that seems like the safest route to go down. However, I do love the freedom of creative expression that comes with graphic design. Photographing events, there are certain shots I need to capture, and pure engagement needs to be held at all times. Whereas with graphics, I am able to add my own spin to it, and there is a wider scope of possibilities. Endless almost – until it comes down to pleasing the client.
I’m sure there is some route in which I can pursue both. I am constantly updating my skills in both industries. Recently learning Lightroom and purchasing more kit. Also, having a go at After Effects and designing for different vehicles. Could I say I am a professional photographer and practicing designer? Shouldn’t it be the other way round?
