Well fuck, it's been a perfect year. First and foremost I need to thank every single person that has made a positive impact on me this year; my friends, editors, journalists, agents, managers, fellow photographers and you lot, the people who support me. Thank you so goddamn much!
This year I have met so many amazing new people, created so many amazing relationships and I couldnt be more pleased. I am so grateful for all of you. Grateful for the oportunities and everything. Thankful for your guidance, your trust and most of all your time.
This year I have worked so hard in networking; building relationships to create a network of talented people to feed off, be inspired and motivated by. I am most inspired by those of you I have come close with this year.
This year shat all over last year, no joke. I mean I shot more than double the shows I did the year before. I photographed my first festival. I started working for more publications. I started getting more work. I got published in spress twice. I got to shoot so much and I need to thank my editors so much for their time, effort and trust. They're just fucking amazing. I also need to thank the managers and agents who gave me their time of day and didnt tell me to fuck off when I emailed them for media accred. You know you're doing something right now people stop telling you to fuck off.
I've worked hard this year. I have hussled and busted my ass with stress and anxiety to make things work. And things are finally coming together as next year I will be hopefully shooting three festivals, which is freaking mind blowing! I will hopefully be getting a photo 'job' at a publication. I will hopefully shoot tons of shows. I will be working closer with a magazine. I will be doing work experience for Girlfriend Magazine and I am working on getting work experience at either TopShop, Myer, Royal Children's Hospital or something real awesome.
2013, please be good to me.
I am going to properly edit my photos of La Dispute now…… (bit late)
