When alignment whispers its name

When alignment whispers its name

I spoke to someone on the phone today, who I haven’t spoken to in some time.
Long ago, I had suggested that the career path he was on did not fit the purpose he could achieve.  He has a spark about him that screams leadership, and I felt that the industry he had chosen was far beneath his intellectual and artistic capability and capacity.
During our phone call, he described how he had had to hit rock bottom to be able to realise that the industry really did not care for him in a way he deserved.   But it took a lot of pain – that he was still processing – for him to finally switch paths.

“Did you take a piece of me with you?  When you left, I mean.”

“..I’m not really sure how to respond to that one.  You know that’s not true.”

“Then why have I found it impossible to create and do stuff like I used to?”

“Because trying to be someone you once were, is also trying to be something you’re not.  You can’t be the old you, the same way you can’t be me.  Why not just be whatever you are now?”

Dear reader,

As an ex-marketer, a bio feels like another attempt to sell my soul to you.  To convince you of my worthiness.  To scream louder than all the other portrait photographers and writers, and let you know that “I am the best and here is why”.

But I am tired of feeling like a hypocrite.  My work is all about proving your worthiness, your capability, and your true beauty to you – and so I’d prefer to write you this letter from the heart, instead.  It won’t be what you’re used to, and it won’t be perfect – but it’ll be the verbal embodiment of what I tend to create.  Whether it’s writing with the aim to help you help yourself, or my photography – my intention always remains the same: to prove that you are (good) enough.

My personal journey

My personal journey

Where do I start?

Do I tell you about the fact that I always had apparent ball-o-phobia during sports (get your mind out of the gutter), and couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs without wanting to pass out?  Or do I mention my mini-strokes and the many hospitals I knew well because of my constant illness?  Or, shall I start with the fact that I have always felt like I was just never quite good/beautiful enough?

I had always been weak.  Weak of mind, weak of body.  That changed in 2013, when I made the decision to get better.  Sure, I still have off-days.  Sure, there are things that may not be able to improve, physiologically.  But I set the intention to start living and stop surviving – and then decided to document it.

We can leave the details for another time.  Instead, have a look at the photo series I started to help me fall in love with myself.  I only offer the services I do because I have lived through the incredible transformation that photography can create.

Enjoy 🙂 read more…

“We’re almost there. Just a few more steps.”

“I know.”

“I’m so proud of you.”

“Thank you.”

“You proved all the naysayers wrong – even the ones in your head.”

Welcome to my Truth.
