This was Paul's first ever photo shoot.. an I think you'll agree with me he looks like he's a natural! Paul is also a generous guy! After our afternoon of photography.. we went dinner after! Which he insisted on getting.. What a gent! So.. after speaking to his wife and seeing photos of his daughter and son.. he told me that we're now official friends! I love when clients turn to friends! High five to my girl Carrie.. ;) who's also a friend for life! 🙌

Preserving our oceans is a win-win. which directly benefits not only the #health & preservation of our local #marine life species & their #ecosystems but a healthy clean ocean benefits all of us, our children and also our children's children.
Taking responsibly for our own personal impact has never been more prevalent. We must also DEMAND that large industries lead the way in making massive positive changes by opting for sustainable, low impact and biodegradable materials.. creating a world where our overall impact on our surrounding environment is greatly diminished which promotes a healthy thriving environment. 🌎 #ourocean #BlueMind 💙

🌲 “Planting trees is an effective way to offset your carbon emissions and improve the natural environment for the benefit of climate, wildlife and people.
Since trees have a vital role in the balancing of CO2 and oxygen levels, widespread deforestation across the world has also had a negative impact by releasing more CO2 into the atmosphere.
The rise in global temperature is causing more extreme weather events, rising sea levels, warmer oceans and threats to animals and plants that are unable to adapt to the rapid changes. If carbon emissions continue unchecked, the impacts of climate change will be potentially catastrophic to people and wildlife.” Info Taken from; https://treesforlife.org.uk/plant-trees/becoming-carbon-conscious/

So growing artistically comes I guess in many forms for many different people.. if it was supposed to happen the same exact way for everyone I'm sure there would be systems in place to guide people smoothly and safely to their destination. But.. who are we kidding! Growth is an uncertain process and the whole point is expansion. Expansion of skills.. development of new models and new ideas. Often completely new material.
So with this said.. I've been in a bit of a growth spurt for some time now. I'm not going to lie, it's been uncomfortable.. painful even! I've had days of absolute exhaustion and others where I'm brimming with ideas and drive. What I have noticed is that things are only going to work if I DO!.. yes.. we all know this right?? Sounds simple and basic. Ok. Let me break it down for you.. feel exhausted (you're like Yve I have 3x kids a pet goldfish and a donkey.. don't talk to me about exhaustion!!!!!!) Ok right.. I hear ya! It's called LIFE right? Ok.. so with that agreed what I've personally recently found is that when I just can't keep my eyes open, I first of all
1) sleep if I can, even if it's for a ½ relax to reboot
2) I work through it. THROUGH IT. I literally force myself to do one task.. then another.. then another. My body is protesting my mind is putting up a fight and it's everything I can do to keep on task. Then.. poof.. it's done!!!
And you know what, at least it's not left for yet another day! Key is.. to get on top of your game NO MATTER WHAT. No matter the excuses.. cause frankly my mind can think some stuff up sometimes. The greater the battle.. the sweeter the victory. Little achievements become bigger ones when the effect is felt collectively.
Listen I'm not here to preach.. but if you in anyway feel this heavy ache sometimes deep in your heart.. the struggle.. it's REAL. Know you are not alone and all I can say is just push on through boo. Get on that spinning bike and get your body moving.. send those emails.. focus on your work tasks. You will nail it. High five!
So with this going on I always try and take a moment to free myself.. to create! With no rules..
MAKE YOUR OWN RULES… be like Nike and “Just Do It” free yourself and any bar you artificially set for yourself.
I created this piece today which was taken from an original photo I took from the reflective light of a rainbow on the wall. I then edited it in Lightroom & PS and created a piece of digital art. An you know what's so great about Art??? You can just do it for you! No rules. People that are destined to appreciate it.. they will do, and for the others that's fine too!!!
I just hope that it inspires just one single person in some way shape or form and it gives them an electric bolt of light to their heart!. I want my work to feel inspiring for people. But as an artist i realise that once I have completed my work.. it is then completely out of my hands. So all I can hope for is that it's received well for the right people..
Give yourself licence to just create.
Be fearless ❤🌈
