One of my main goals for this year is to do more personal projects. I've been toying with several ideas recently, some of which I'll do, and some will be shelved for a later date. Personal projects are important as they give a photographer the opportunity to shoot who or what we want, and in the way we want, without the constraints of a client or art director.
My goal for this project is to turn the camera on all the interesting people behind it. For most of us, photography isn't something we do, it's who we are.
The main part of this project will be an ongoing series of portraits of as many photographers as want to take part. These will be combined with a quote, story or first memory in relation to their life as a photographer. The aim is to showcase everyone on the project website.
A secondary element of the project is to document some of the trials and tribulations the modern photographer faces in todays paranoid society, and how we may be affected by the Digital Economy Bill and copyright law.
