The journalistic view

 It is well known that the majority of my book covers are taken from pictures I have shot, the reason for this is I can’t afford the expense of a nice cover.

For years, my late father told me I was a good photographer – a great compliment – as in his eyes I could not do anything.

At one time I did think about becoming a photographer, I even started a course. The problem is to become successful you need to find somewhere that has no photographer.
As most villages have a regular photographer, you are required to set up shop for five years to attempt to establish your business, the next five years are for you to break even – if possible – only then can you consider making your work pay.

In the meantime, what are you living off for the first ten years?12346340_10208369761500927_5204994747335774707_n
