I have been in discussion with a photographic agency specialising in flower images this week. They are interested in my work and I will be submitting a selection of photographs for their appraisal early next month. The process has made me re-evaluate what I do, and it's clear that I have to focus hard on making pictures that are of the best quality, that are a distillation of my style and vision.
Whether what I produce will appeal to the picture editors of magazines and big companies I don't know as yet - I just know that average images will not suffice, and that more effort has to go into each and every one. The photos today are the result of a session with these factors very much in mind, with every aspect considered far more carefully than if these were simply for my own benefit.
