If you are aligned with the Universe and you move from a place of love, when one door closes another hundreds doors will open.
When I started photography as a full time job it was 6 years ago in Mysore, India, and I was mainly shooting yoga and more specifically Ashtanga Yoga practitioners. I didn’t have a website, IG wasn’t there and I started getting hired so much mainly for word of mouth. After few years, mainly because I get bored in doing always the same thing, I started shooting other things: first other styles of yoga, then more lifestyle, some fashion, dance, fitness, nudes, portraits and so on. Some of my first clients and followers didn’t like my new style, some told me I had to be consistent to be recognizable and stick in only one subject, some others didn’t like the nude photos and unfollowed me, other clients I had for years disagree on the fact that I was too critical on some things happening in the Ashtanga Yoga world and never hired me again (and unfollowed me of course), some galleries and publishers I sent my work to told me they were not interested and that my style was not arty enough and too commercial, some models retouched themselves some photos I took of them because they were not airbrushed enough (and never called me again) but in general, of the hundreds of opportunities I had, other hundreds opportunities were born.
We can’t be liked by anyone and probably we don’t even need to aim that.
Fact is that, even if I’ve always been lucky to work a lot, I’ve never been busy like now.
I’m mostly fully booked all around the world until October and right now I’m in London because today I start a 3 day photo shooting for @triyogauk
I’m so grateful to be able to travel, create and share with the world. This is the life I was dreaming of, and I’m loving it fully.
