Being a full time photographer is a hard job but luckily many things make it all worthwhile.  Whenever I receive behind the scene images, it always fills me with sheer joy.  Now this may sound crazy since they often are not the best quality, 'pose' or expression, but they remind me why I get up everyday and keep on going with a profession which is far from easy.  

Whenever I have my camera in hand, I feel like a superhero.  I feel no fear, no worry and in fact just peace.  And no no I am definitely not sniffing glue.  If your chosen profession, makes you feel this way then you will understand what I am saying here.  Growing up, I was always the tomboy in my dungaree shorts, 2nd hand skateboard and untold bruises and bloody scrapes.  I thought I was fearless then but that was definitely "child's" play in comparison.  My camera has become like a secret weapon with endless magical powers.  Now you will see me lying in the middle of roads, hanging off boats or climbing mini mountains to get the shots I want.  I guess some things just do not change but in fact get better with time, experience and wisdom.

I wish for you to find the fearlessness which takes you where you want to be in this life !

Nice. Very seldom we have/get photographs of ourselves behind the camera.
