Have you ever had this experience?  I have a friend who, although he gets a lot of satisfaction from his job has always felt that something was missing in his life,  you know?  that sense of doing something with competence, setting a goal and achieving it but somehow it doesn’t fully satisfy him, I’m sure we have all experienced that right?

I was explaining how it feels so fantastic when you discover that having a creative outlet like photography or art makes life even better and how easily you can see how beneficial it can be to use your imagination for all areas of your life,  it’s good when you do isn’t it?

I’m sure you can easily imagine how successful this will make your life now and in the future.  When you think back, you will remember a time that fulfilling your creative need makes you feel good, a time when you felt so amazing, a time that you feel so confident now that it this is the right thing to do, the fun thing to do, the enjoyable thing to do, this is it! The thing you need now to help you move forwards to truly reach out and feel the               fire within, to make that one giant leap, to be who you truly, really are capable of fully being now and always in the future.  So as you indulge your creativity you  will  start to notice how much more  easily you will find success in other areas of your life, you begin now to notice how you are glowing inside, radiating energy as your creative outlet allows you to discover who you truly are.

HOW I GOT HERE Of course, I wasn’t always a full time photographer. I spent a lot of time in the corporate world. I had a job which paid well, but just didn’t excite me. I remember the day when I had had enough. Enough of selling myself short, enough of dreaming too small, enough of doing what others expected of me. I had put away my dreams and told myself I would get back to them later, but somehow there always seemed to be something else that had to get done first. A friend of mine had recommended I take the NLP Business Practitioners course, and although I was really busy, I decided to do it. During that time, I began to imagine the different paths my life could take from here. While I had a hazy picture of what this other life might look like, I had a clear picture of where my current life was going if I didn’t change. It was a scary moment, a bit like standing on the edge of a cliff deciding whether to jump into the great unknown or stay on the cliff, safe but trapped. I jumped. The transition to the life I wanted was challenging The transition to the life I wanted was challenging but I would never go back. After that day I resolved to do what I love, to follow my bliss.  Picking up a camera after several years away, I found that many things had changed, the digital age had arrived. In the intervening years, I was too busy to pay any attention to my photography, and occasionally when I took something I really liked, I would think “how do some photographs seem so captivating and others leave me completely cold?” I knew this is what I was meant to do Somehow though, I knew this is what I was meant to do. I dedicated myself to learning everything I could about being a photographer. I took many, many courses and I read every book I could get my hands on, I still do. Since then, I have dedicated myself to helping other creative photographers achieve the results they want. And what a journey it has been. Last year I qualified as a coach. My main area of interest is creativity and helping others to express their vision. WHAT I BELIEVE Along the way, I’ve learnt that there are no rules. Experiment, explore, play. My advice is to make your art from your heart, not for the praise or the money.  Lighten up. It’s important to take your photography seriously, but it's a mistake to take yourself too seriously. Finally, you get what you want when you never, ever give up so enjoy every minute of it and just do it!
