MAKING PHOTOGRAPHY DECISIONS

LIFESTYLE by KRISS on 20 may 2018

MAKING PHOTOGRAPHY DECISIONS So it wouldn’t be entirely true to say this last year’s choices especially were decided because of our photography business.
We purchased a sailboat, moved on it, gave up our shop where we had previously already made place for merchandise rather than photography services, I poorly advertised our business throughout the year and also sold part of our gear to refit our boat.

Nevertheless, these days we have to make important decisions such as where we are going next.


And because this will have to do a great deal with making a living a keeping on refitting the boat for future crossings (oh we are longing the tropics), we have to make intelligent ones.

The beautiful islands of the Balearics (Ibiza, Formentera, Mallorca and Menorca) are very likely to become our next living and working ground for several reasons and one of them is actually photography !

Are we nuts to even consider possible to make a living with photography these days when everyone owns a smartphone or a DSLR blablabla ? I actually start wondering if I wasn’t a bit fast and coward at giving up so easily a business I have put so much energy and time into building and that was giving me so much satisfaction.

Not that I have ever completely given up, I still had a few gigs this year but I had honestly given up on the idea of making a decent living out of it.

But trends shift so fast in this mad world of consumerism that I should have anticipated photography would just be a few months hobby for most of the people who were proudly boasting their cameras around their necks on the streets these last couple of years.

Now for some reason, and how much I hope life will prove me right, I feel there is a place for what I’ve been enjoying doing so much : shooting people ! I guess my cutting down on Instagram and photography blogs helped me a lot, it was kind of becoming depressing at some point.

Anyways, may there be lots of mermaids this summer in the cristal waters of the Balearics !
