My own Spring Break

Been through a lot lately. Things were picking up and I was busy shooting again. I was stressed out a bit lately so I thought “hey, I should just take a break and drive and shoot around.” So I took a day off work (and by that I mean NO work at all). I went to White Rock early for an early brunch, then went to Steveston and chilled for a while. I then went out for a coffee with my laptop in the evening.

When I went home, I said this to myself: “I need to do this more often.” I’ve been shooting quite a bit since last summer and haven’t really been stopping down till early Feb of this year. Things picked up again during May and I realized that I’ve never really fully relaxed myself when I had free time. It was quite a eye opener to myself.

I had been shooting so much paid work at a point where I was a little scared that I was doing it just to pay the bills. I took a step back  and realized that I was pushing myself forward so much that I wasn’t enjoying life all that much. Now picking up the camera is now an enjoyment again :)

Enjoy the photos :)

Hey Matt,

I had no idea that you went through something like that, I hope your mother has recovered. You are an amazing photographer, especially when it comes to car photography, I was always blown away at the skill of you, Jordon and Chris showed.

I hope your situation has resolved, I saw that you are shooting again which is awesome! I am currently in australia and slowly I am starting to shoot more and more. It’s a bit of a balance because I am traveling and have to watch money and other things. But after the program, while it was very valuable, I was really burnt out as well as other things that are going on in my life.

I didn’t know you have a blog, and I will make sure to check it often and comment! I hope all is well with you my friend!

Cheers,

Kris
