I’m extremely hard on myself. It’s nothing unique for people who create, but this is my own burden. The last year I’ve walked around with a feeling I haven’t done as well as I should, I can hear the voice in my head telling me it’s not good enough. In some ways it’s good, in other ways it takes the joy out of creating altogether. I live a life others only dream of, I travel the world and I get invited to see things I never thought possible. And as a new season starts here in Australia, I get ready for another year of doing what I love. I have found a base, a home in Byron Bay and from here I’ll travel the world again, but hopefully shoot more and more at home as well. As I sat on the beach today, I promised myself to go easier on myself as well. To create and believe it is good enough. To tell that voice in my head to go away. This is what I saw last year, this is where I went. If that’s not good enough, nothing ever will be.
