My job has perhaps never been as challenging as the past two weeks.
Our new baby boy (now ten days old) decided to arrive two weeks early. Mum’s water broke early Saturday morning — 10 hours before I was to run a photo workshop. In the middle of the night I arranged back-up as I packed hospital bags and supported my wife’s increasingly frequent contractions. It was a bit of a scramble and I couldn’t call in sick!
I often have people tell me I have a dream job. It is pretty nice but there are many challenges people never see. Over the last 20 years I’ve made big blunders, had wonderful surprises and learned many, many hard lessons.
In this edition of Exposed! we share some tips to take your photos into a job with fewer bumps in the road.
