My first job in photography was as a studio assistant for Spot Studio in East London. My job was to make the coffee, clean the studio and help the main photographer throughout the day. But it also came with the chance to make my own work and take prospective subjects out for a shoot in the natural light, thus freeing up the time of the main photographer to work with other clients. I mainly used an old Canon 10D which struggled at the best of times unless it was the sunniest of days. However the result were often pleasing, proving that it’s not all about the kit. This shot is one of my favourites and has survived the portfolio cull I am currently going through.
