IT'S A DOUBLE HEADED COIN
I enjoy additional work commitments outside of my photography interests. Activities centre on the aviation sector within the travel industry; the upside means both my day jobs are varied and interesting. As an operational front line member of staff, I have the responsibility of working in a non-landside environment, this is a privileged pleasure I hold dearly.
Occasionally I’m called to participate in the documentation process of airside safety occurrences; this involves support photography for visual reference to airside & aircraft incident reports. (Seemed like it was relevant and on topic, so just thought it was worth a mention!)
Strangely enough, working in such a diverse and dynamic environment helps in many of my photography surroundings, drawing from an operational skill base and applying those skills in certain photography situations has helped outcomes on occasion.
