After having eaten all of my friend Holly’s cakes, we sat down and had a bit of a sensible chat. We were doing a bit of brain storming about how someone like myself (not great with writing and words) could keep a weekly journal. Of course, it seems stupidly obvious now! Yet I have never actually taken an account of what happens week to week in my life. Some weeks are full of epic shoots on cool locations. Others are sat around in coffee shops watching the world pass by. So I am going to start my weeks on Sundays. Sunday is my official “day off” for the week so it makes sense to start here. Being a photographer in Leicester is not exactly a balanced lifestyle.

 

This week has been a particularly relaxed one, which is great, because as I sit down feeling pretty good about my energy levels, I am very aware that next week is going to be really busy!

 

So here is what I have been getting up to.

Testing my Mamiya camera

My weekly trip to Leicester Market (one of my favourite things to do each week), followed by cooking my food for the next few days. I try to cook everything in large batches to save time throughout the week.

Lots of coffee and catching up on my reading. Holly lent me a food photography book and I read most of the Annie Leibovitz At Work.
