Not behind the desk for 8 hours at a time.
I was living the time of my life in Amsterdam, when I was called to New York City to work as a high-end photo Producer.
The change in atmosphere was a shock, which is easy to believe when your daily life used to consist of bike rides and pulling espresso at a doughnut shop.
Ever so slowly, the creeping grip of NYC got a hold of me to believe that strategy, structure and information was law and my natural intuition was wrong. So no longer did I feel like the girl on a bike riding against the wind without a care and powerful self-belief.
Oh no – the bike had morphed into a non-stop stationary bike... in a basement..... without a window.
My curiosity to experiment battled against feeling that I didn’t know enough. Not good enough. It became about what was profitable or how to think the ‘right way’. Everything was circling in my head, paralyzing my inner voice.
It felt exhausting to constantly doubt who I am.
A single photo shoot in 2019 changed the direction of my path.
A photographer wanted something exciting and new for her website, headshots that in her words were ‘weird’ – but they were completely HER. We put glasses on her head and no joke, had her throw a chair in the air! The entire time I practiced my craft with fun in mind and loudly expressed my excitement with her as we exchanged stories, laughed, and weren’t bound by limits.
I haven’t stopped brand photo shoots ever since.
