An ugly job
I had a chuckle to myself tonight while sorting through iPhoto when I came across these two photos from nearly two years ago. When I explain to people what I do for a living, the response is often 'Oh wow, that's exciting'. 90% of the time it honestly is pretty fab. Then there are the 'hiccup' jobs like the one above that takes me to a very dark place/memory. 6 weeks in a cold factory out west creating a 200 page catalogue for a client that will remain anonymous. But, do you know what? I wouldn't take the experience back. I learnt so much in that six weeks, working with an old-school photographer and a client that was truly passionate about wanting packs of frozen peas to look 'luscious'. The moral of my post? What doesn't kill you makes you stronger....or at least gives you a laugh two years later.
