One of the biggest cliché in photography today is stating that the camera doesn’t matter and all you need is vision or a good eye. Whilst this is in part true, and I’ll get to it in this article, it’s also a thought that needs to be challenged.
I started my professional life at a very early age. I left my parents’ home at the age of 14 to live in a city about 100 miles away with my older sister. At the age of 16 I then went on to live alone (is this actually legal?!). There I studied for 3 years how to become a chef. I had and still have a passion for food and cookery.
It’s not necessarily obvious but cooking is actually very similar to photography.
