The last week or so hasn’t been terribly productive for me on the wildlife front. Aside from photographing nature and landscapes, for on average 2 days per week, I freelance for a number of regional newspapers. It brings in the pennies and I actually quite enjoy it. You never know from one day to the next what you’re going to photograph and for anyone who has ever been self employed, there’s nothing better than having jobs booked in the diary so you can at least, plan a little for the future.
But, regardless of work commitments I try to get myself out before and after a day’s work which, at this time of the year, invariably means an early start. A 4.45 sunrise means I am home by 7 and can afford an hours kip before getting ready for ‘work.’ And sunset at 9.15 gives me a few hours in the evening. Over a period, it’s remarkable just how much processing, paperwork and correspondence builds up! Oh, how Iwould love an assistant to find the work, process the images, submit them to my agents and upload them onto my website!
