Why Photographers need to network and stick together.
I specifically didn’t book any weddings the weekend before I was due to leave for Madagascar as Stu was due home and I knew there would be lots of running around to do. Stu’s flight got delayed so I planned to sleep in and spend the day preparing for our trip. Early on Saturday morning my dear friend Samantha Maber called … she was on her way up to the Midlands to shoot a wedding and was deathly ill and wasn’t sure if she could realistically make it. Long story short, they stopped off at a clinic on the way and the doctor said there was no ways she could manage a whole 11 hour day. I went straight to her aid and shot the wedding for her. Sam is one of the sweetest people I know and I know for a fact she would’ve done the same for me, no questions asked.
This is a prime example of how photographers need to stick together and network. Photographers can be a sticky bunch and can be rather fierce about protecting their lilly pads in the pond but at the end of the day by connecting, sharing, supporting and helping each other it can only lead to growth.
