Less is more.
Too many people attempt to do it all. Remember that kid in middle school who tried to be the all star on the dodgeball team? Nobody liked him, and he only got in everybody’s way. Focusing on one particular skill, direction, goal, project etc. takes work and effort. The drive and desire to have your hands in a little bit of everything needs to be suppressed.
I was born in South Africa and moved to Australia in 2000 with my parents and younger brother. Growing up I never considered myself 'artsy’; I didn't take art at school because I couldn't draw or paint. It wasn't until senior high school that I took film and television that I discovered this passion for creativity. Still unsure of what I wanted to do with my life, I went onto university to study Communication & Graphic Design and it was then I took a photography subject. For the first time in my life, I had found something I loved doing and was relatively good at. I then went on to study a two year diploma in photography which I completed in 2011 and started my own photography business.
