I have made a living out of photography for 30 years now and have left the rat race - I have been self employed as a freelance for most of this time but feel that I have "retired" to a place where I love photography again. I don't feel any pressure any more for deadlines, but in fact I produce results quicker now than ever - my attitude has matured and relaxed. I am now trying to give something back to photography in return for everything it has given me. I am still a pro but now a relaxed and comfortable pro who can do 400 shots a day and edit the images in two to three days, why? - because I want to and I love it!
