The drug that is photography

For me photography is just like a drug that I must have every day. It doesn’t matter whether it be by looking at the images of others, editing my work or making new images, I must have my daily ‘fix’. The longer I am addicted the worse the addiction gets, and I hope I can stay addicted for the rest of my life. I don’t want to go into rehab, I don’t want to be cured, I am very happy staying an addict. And like all addicts I just need more and more!

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.

    Budapest? How lovely! I feel the same way, though there are times when I like to take breaks. I get “seeing” fatigue. When I printed in a commercial lab, I didn’t make any of my own photos because of image fatigue. I have also discovered that photography gives me a grand reason to travel and see new places. Have fun in Budapest! Can’t wait to see your images. (We had a great time with Lluis in Barcelona)
