Just taken a phone call, have just been told the sad news of the death of one of my old Picker-ups.
Johnny, was a great guy, full of character and we have spent many hours together on a shoot day.
Whilst ‘The Journey’, is obviously Photography now, it is moments like this, when I look back to my Keepering days and yearn to be back.
I have said before, it wasn’t a job, it was a way of life. To succeed, it had to be. You had to love it and dedicate your life to it, that is the only way it worked. For those of you who know about it, you will fully understand. The freedom and nature, which came with it, was second to none. If only I had the Nikon back then! But, I had my compact camera.
I have been spending this last week, cataloging and sorting images out for something!!
But this news, has just made me reach for my old photo albums and have half an hour of reminiscing, taking myself back out in to the field. There are only limited ones I can show you at the moment, but, as usual, I will let them explain a small part of my story to you x
