Being a professional photographer is not just about turning up with your equipment and pressing the button. It’s about expressing yourself and what you see THROUGH your equipment, it’s about being able to capture what you are photographing exactly how it is or how you choose it to be. In the case of photographing to promote locations like this, it is to capture it in a way that people actually WANT to go there.
Being a professional photographer is about having a VISION and being able to consistently and reliably actualise and realise the details and context, the space and the essence of where you are as an expression of who you are.
