In the current situation, like everyone I have more time on my hands so I thought I’d revive my photography blog offering Help, Advise and Inspiration! Are you a Fashion photographer in the UK? A Lifestyle Photographer? Or Shoot Beauty Photography?

Has the pandemic affected your professional Photography work life?

For me personally, it’s a big YES! As a fashion photographer in the UK, this pandemic has affected me financially with shoots being cancelled for the forceable future, along with potential clients putting things on hold. I’m also a ‘people person’, I like to network and talk to clients face to face so it’s difficult for me to not be able to do this in the current situation.

Not knowing when the next paid commission will come has been a worry BUT on a POSITIVE NOTE it has given me time to get to know myself better, refocus my goals, give me clarity and new strategies to increase my online exposure!

THE GOOD NEWS!!!
