Most of my paid photography jobs have come through social media and more precisely: Twitter. I’ve always loved photography, but then who doesn’t. After all we are all photographers. Find me one person who will say “nah…I don’t like photography, I don’t take photos”.
When I started shooting urban /street photography a little more seriously around 2008, all I thought about was, well, shooting. Looking back at the photos I took back then, I often cringe–yet it’s a valuable reminder of how far I’ve gone.
In 2010, when I realized that I was progressing and receiving encouraging feedback on Flickr, I thought to myself: “Right, it’s time to set up a home for my London photography” (a bit like going from having a market stall to owning a shop), and so my photography website was born.
Immediately then I opened a Twitter account and Facebook page to promote it.
