A few days ago someone I was meeting for the first time asked me if I was a professional photographer. A difficult question, and one I’m unsure how to answer.How does one define a “professional photographer”? According to most of the top results on Google, pro status is dependent on…
A wonderful comment on the above ramble from my lovely friend Kitten:
”Without getting too political, the concept of “professional” is a deeply capitalist idea, in that it deliberately ties the legitimacy of your work with how much you get paid for it. However, it’s a flawed way of thinking - Would your work be any better if someone else paid for it? Would you be a better photographer, more skilled, more talented, if you got paid to do it? People devote their lives to plenty of things and become experts - parenting, caring, activism, religion - and never see a penny from it. You’re definitely a photographer - that’s self-evident. If people want to know what you make money doing, that’s a separate, less important question.”
My charming colleague Kiran models my newest neck corset.
This is my new badass corset vest. Steel boned and tightlaceable. Load bearing D-rings in the front and at the sides. UPDATE: Now available on Etsy!
Here’s my finished badass corset. Double layer construction, steel boned, fully tightlaceable. Made to measure orders taken now! (Forgive the fact that it doesn’t fit my mannequin properly- she’s broken at the moment and I can’t adjust her!) UPDATE: Now available on Etsy!
*squeals* utility corset. Would be better with PALS but otherwise I am a happy panda looking at this.
Can you do custom colors and such?
I certainly can! Drop me a message if you’d like to discuss it. I’ll have these listed in my Etsy store as soon as I have some decent pictures taken!
