I can say it was a fairly eventful and productive life. Based on my experiences, I have four pieces of advice for you:

  • Maintain awareness of creative trends, even if only to subvert them.
  • Study the technical aspects of your craft.
  • Try a few different things to see what best aligns with your interests and style. For example, I took pictures of the city although my specialisation was portraits (within that, I think my best work was the images I created of children).
  • Lastly, don’t be afraid to advertise yourself and your work. The world needs to know how great you are, lest your story and creations remain undiscovered.
