Would you be the same photographer had you started earlier?
Was listening to a podcast a little earlier that got me thinking.
What makes you the photographer you are? Why do you shoot landscapes and I shoot people? It’s all down to personality and I know mine has changed much over the years. I’m now hitting my late 30s and much has happened since I left school. Had I come straight out of school and become a photographer I think my work would have been radically different.
Maybe better, perhaps worse, we’ll never know.
