Quite often I get asked why I don't photograph people very often, if not at all. Well it is simple, people are weird! They use you, they lie to you and are very selfish. Not all people of course are like this but I think a lot are.
Nowadays with all the technology available who is to say someone actually took the picture they are showing.... For example a picture that is so different in skill, quality, post work from their usual work and likes to pass it off as their own when it is obviously not or they took the shot and got someone to do the post work on it. I foresee a future of people offering to do post work for people who either A. cant be bothered to learn it or B. Cannot do photography
Excitement, youth and something new is all well and good but when that wears off and you actually get to know that person and realize what a mistake that was it is not so shiny then. One day it will bite you back and then the person that hurt you is a fucker but you were never a fucker to someone else because you think you can justify it.
My favorite now is the fact that I once again have to sacrifice people I knew and become the twat just because I believe that a system is beyond stupid and kick off about it. I get attacked, froze out and thought of as a twat but when the dust settles and meetings happen and my point is agreed upon and the system is changed am I the hero, no........ I am still the twat even thought everyone will benefit from my kick off.
ahhhhhhhhhhh who said people are strangers people are strange..........
