Being a photographer: The truth.
As a freelancer, many people think that I wake up late, have countless days off and work in my spare time. Which in reality is a lifestyle that most could only dream of. So I can certainly relate to the graphic below.
It definitely made me think that the general public (myself included) often take so much of what happens behind the scenes, in the creative industry for granted. Most people will never know how much effort went into that ad campaign in that magazine that you just paged past. Or how much work went into producing that full length feature film whose credits we just ignore. Always remember - there's usually a lot more to these things than meets the eye.
