Project 365, week 1…
Things I’ve learned in 2020 include how much I need to do two things in this life to keep my peace. These are create and be outside. I also learned, after years of guilt, second guessing, looking for validation and fear of failure that enjoying creating things is the only reason I need to create things that is that I enjoy it. I don’t need to be saved the world or even help anybody. I don’t need to be original, I can create the same thing every day if I like. It doesn’t need to compliment my Instagram feed or stay “on brand”. I don’t have to say anything important with it. I don’t have to of suffered to make it or come at it from any position of great emotion.
I can just create things that I like, that gave me some peace whilst I made them. I think I deserve a little of that everyday. So here’s my first week of just that…
Thanks for checking out my blog! My name is Charlie Alexander and I’m a portrait photographer specialising in children, families, weddings and branding portraiture. I work all over Essex, Suffolk and London but you can commission me to come work with you anywhere in UK and beyond. You can find out more about me and work here!
