I have found my calling... - Georgina Edwards Photography

I have found my calling.....actually and truly found it.  I don't think a huge number of people honestly find the ONE thing it is that they were meant to do or the person they were meant to be.  And I also think that there isn't necessarily one single thing for everyone.  But, for me, after working in various jobs and for various companies over the years, the journey I have taken in my life has led me, finally, to here

It's what I think about throughout the day......it's what I dream of at night. 

Taking pictures.

Capturing moments, freezing time, recording a moment that might otherwise go unnoticed and pass, forgotten, into history.

The big moments are wonderful and it's fabulous to have a pictorial record to those big days.  But it's also the incidentals that I love; the everyday, the mundane....the, well, forgettable.

If I could change one thing in my life......it would be that I had come to this realisation so much sooner!  I also wish the technology had been around earlier in my life so that I could have snapped away like we can now with camera phones.  Don't get me wrong, I had a camera for most of my double digit life and my family and friends became quite used to me pointing a film camera at them on a regular basis.  But as a career, being a photographer only took off after starting a family and with hindsight, I just imagine the photographic journey I might have undertaken if I had dared to turn a hobby into something more when I was much younger!

And the side message in all this is......if you do have a cameraphone full of precious snaps of you and your family or you have a bridge camera or even a big expensive full frame camera that takes digital images, don't leave those precious images to languish in perpetual digital ether.  Give yourself a kick and get them printed out!
