Good morning from EPHQ everyone! I will keep today’s mention quite brief as I believe what I’m sharing does not need to be verbose.
I recently received a note on a Video Recap I shared on my You Tube Channel about my photo shoot with professional Actor: Matt Crabtree (who I worked on the movie; “Skyfell (And I Can’t Get Up)” for The Toscars hosted by Brits in LA) from a photographer colleague that was bashing my personality. Since I screen all my comments, it didn’t post, but nonetheless – I was surprised to receive such a harsh note from a fellow photographer. Especially when in a creative industry – there’s an unspoken rule to encourage each other’s individuality.
At first I was disappointed, but that was fleeting and it was rapidly followed up with me putting it out on social media and my thoughts about changing who I am to appease another person’s agenda was a simple three lettered answer: “NOT.”
After I shared this experience on social media a few of my friend’s, colleague’s & client’s shared their thoughts about why people should be themselves.
