In a fundraising support for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, the kids had to dress up as “When I grow up I want to be a …”. Although my daughter has wanted to become a vet since an early age, she has been thinking about spreading her interest a bit further. And with age comes sensible thinking, and she realized that you don’t have to only have one occupation. She dressed as a photographer. I’m not too sure what a photographer would look like, but we imagined a bit artsy, comfortable clothing with a camera around their neck.
Lately she has developed an interest in photography. She has been asked on numerous occasions by her rhythmic gymnastics friends to be a model for their assignments. She is very comfortable in front of a camera. But through this she has learned a lot of what happens behind the scenes of photography.
She also selected photography as her passion project for the William Pike Challenge Award, and his happily snapping away at anything and everything.
