My very own Kylie

Thursdays are generally my favourite work day of the week. Partly because it's near the weekend, but mostly because it's the day I spend with my friend Kylie. She and I are both working on our own projects, and about a year and a half ago, we decided to devote one day a week to them... together. We jokingly call it our 'Study Day'. I'm mostly not doing any study - usually working on shoot editing and things of that nature, and she's working on her own creative and career developing projects. We've even added another couple of friends to our group, all working diligently at my home each Thursday, or near enough.

Kylie is so talented, and resourceful. She and I have spent a lot of time in each others' company because of our Thursdays together, and we pretty much share anything and everything with each other over cups of tea and whatever sweet things we can fossick up in the pantry.

She let me take this sad picture of her. Because, sometimes we are sad together, and I think she is one of the most authentic people in my life, and sadness is one of those things she shares with me. It's not all like that all the time, but in the moments that we are sad, we're probably most closely connected.

The new blood of Homegrown Creative

Some clients are really just inspirational, and working with them doesn't feel like, well, work at all. I have taken photographs for Homegrown Creative before - the last time, we created a sort of stop-motion banner for their new website. Check it out HERE. That was enormous fun. The team of very talented designers were up for a fun challenge, and in their petite studio we knocked it out without any trouble.

Recently, Jamie and the team have been really busy, and they've taken on a new talent. I took a quick few pics of Guy for the site, and can honestly say he's the easiest person I've had to photograph for ages. As always, this team are a dream to work with.
