On 1st April 2017 I began my new life!
As I left work the day before, I said goodbye to both my colleagues and my life as an employee. For a little over a year, I had continued to work full-time as an NHS physiotherapist, whilst also trying to build a business with my wife.
She had managed to leave her NHS work in the summer of 2016 to work full-time in our own physiotherapy clinic and Pilates studio. But while I was working full-time, we were both regularly putting in 50-60 hour weeks and anything other than work was just a pipe-dream.
So, 1st April 2017. I felt like a huge weight had been finally lifted. I knew I’d still be busy and would still be putting in long hours, but I also knew that I would be able to start re-assembling some form of a work/life balance. It was then that I decided I would do Project 365.
Photography has been a passion of mine for some time and I had started to take it a little more seriously by enrolling on an online photography course with the Institute of Photography (I highly recommend this course for anyone just starting our with photography). I had thought for some time that I would like to have a go at Project 365, but being completely over worked, the time was just not right to take on a project of this scale.
So, what better way to mark my new life than with a new photography project!
What is Project 365?
Simply put, Project 365 is a large photography project where I will take one picture every day for a whole year. I hope I can create a series of photographs that will document my life for my first year working for myself. I also hope that Project 365 will help me grow and improve as a photographer and help me discover more about my photography and myself in the process.
So follow my page and join me as I practice, play and document my life through pictures for one whole year.
