Photography is fun. Writing is scary.
I’d rather stand in the path of a fifty-mile wide thunderstorm waiting to get that one last shot than sit down in front of my Macbook and type out three paragraphs of an introduction to my new book. I’ve culled through hundreds of shots. Made all the final photo edits and crops. Exported, color checked, uploaded, labelled, tagged and pixel peeped till my eyes gave out, but sit me down with a blank screen and I’m terrified. To those of you that both photograph and write, I applaud your skill and daring. I hate you, but I do stand in awe.
I had a potential client ask me for a resume last week. I handed her my iPad. “Written”, she asks? “Pixels only”, my reply.
