There's a day when you leave home, on the way to another story, and your life changes forever.
It changes the moment you don't die for a fraction of two seconds.
It changes from the moment you realize that death is real and...
So, your life is a chaos? Smile, wave.. and move on!
2018, the year that didn't start the best way...
… at least for me!
We always have the vision of a beginning of the new year marked by great resolutions, by the fulfillment of all the desires that justify having swallowed, in a single time, a handful of raisins that tasted more like a punishment.
There are those who have a new home, a new car, there are those who decide to wake up sooner, or later and even those who decide to begin the diet already aligned in the resolutions of the previous year, interrupted 38472749 times by the force of a chocolate square.
Here a chaos has settled!
I know that there are much more serious and unavoidable problems: illnesses, irremediable losses, accidents... and that compared to this, I have a crumb of a problem in hands. And so I'm not saying it was the worst start of the year, but it's fair to say it was not the best.
As you know we left the space where we were in Carnaxide.
And this is a good thing. We always change for the better, right? But having to leave the space until the 31st of December and with the new LX Factory spaces under construction, we were in a kind of halfway to the place where we should be.
Until the 11th of January, the day we received the keys to the new space, my life was a borrowed room, two doors away, full of piles of furniture and boxes waiting, like me, for a better end. Boxes and more boxes and more boxes.
Sessions, editions, submissions were suspended. And for so I apologize and thank you for all the care and understanding. After all, I work with and for the best and this confirmation only made me seen, closer, the blue sky beyond the clouds.
Then I wanted to share all this with you and didn't have a website!
Having decided to free all the first week to complete the moving part and to think that from there, in a blink of an eye, I would define the new site, was a completely wrong shot.
I was postponing the site at the pace of the moving delays, at the rhythm that some papers needed to be signed and several contracts were made.
No space. No website. And, much worse, without taking advantage of what is supposed to be the quietest time of the year to rest. And 2018 didn't wait! It would be so easier to delay the new year a month so that everything could be in the right place at the right time but…
It was a difficult and chaotic beginning of the year, still with loose ends and edges to polish, but I will get there without hurrying the hurry that time already has.
Always eager to do more and more and even better and always leaving the door and arms wide open to welcome you!
And where did we move to? To LX Factory!
But space itself is so incredible that it deserves a whole other post, right?
This is a less easy and, perhaps, even controversial topic.
But there is always a time when, less comfortably, we talk about topics that are not addressed to anyone, but that can always clarify some doubts and help realize what it is to work with a professional photographer.
When I started working in the photography industry this...
My month. My day.
A day to pause. To enjoy. To inspire so that I can be back on track with new eyes.
I doubt that I can go to sleep without seeing and answering all the emails, it's stronger than me. Good stories can't wait. Although mine is so often suspended in the written pages of yours.
But today is the day to...
