What does one do when the client’s deliverables are all wrapped up but there’s still more than a few photographs that just cannot be left archived in a hard disk drive? If you have a blog ( if you don’t, seriously, what are you waiting for?! ), you blog those photographs of course.
As a photographer – or in my case, even as a human being – I have the urge to share everything I see / do. I’m not saying it’s beneficial or useful to anyone else but me. A few times during the year, I scroll and scroll and scroll and go through photographs from months ago and years ago. Rekindling memories is a nice way of self-therapy. Mostly memories of travel and celebrations with family and friends. But also memories of the photography gigs I have been so lucky to have been hired for over the years. With the kind of work I do, almost all my clients have taken on a certain amount of risk while hiring me. When I look at photographs from those assignments, I feel good and mushy. And grateful. The process fuels my desire to continue to deliver great work for great clients.
These were photographed during the digital / photo gig I did in collaboration with the JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove Spa & Resort recently. You can see the assignment under the #NAINAxJWMussoorie hashtag. These photographs were outside the boundaries of the creative brief. Stuff that I wanted photographed or wanted to photograph. There’s some photographs of me too – because that’s part of my job too, sometimes. Although I much prefer being behind the camera, coming in front of it also gives me a better understanding of subjects when I’m photographing human beings.
