How do you describe what you do?
I’ve been working as a freelance photographer for the past four years. The main bulk of what I do is centred around real people doing real things, rather than constructing scenarios – from telling a personal story to advertising something. It could be portrait-based, shooting events, bits of editorial or even commercial commissions.
What does a typical day for you look like for you?
At the moment I work from home, but I’m about to get a desk space in Dalston, which is quite a big step up! Right now, I wake up early, make a to-do list and then I’m quite regimented with my time.
I would say 80% of my day is spent at home, working behind the computer. I could be doing research, making mood boards, going through emails, doing accounting, refining my website, going through Instagram, looking at photography books or bouncing around project ideas. The other 20% is going out and taking pictures, and in the summer that increases as it gets warmer. On top of that, I’ll be trying to set up meetings and build my network.
