Coping Abroad


It’s an unsettling feeling to arrive at a point in your career when people start coming to you seeking professional advice and insights on your practice.

When it began for me I thought it was too soon. “I’m still trying to figure it all out for myself!” became my trusted opener. But the more I began to answer questions the more I began to take stock of some important lessons I’ve learned. Through my many failures, luck, perserverance and (most importantly) direct experience, I’ve somehow emerged as a professional in travel, photography and storytelling – and the more I shared my insights the more I began to accept that perhaps I do have a right to be the one answering questions from time to time.

Most recently I was interviewed by Chris Sorgsepp for Infocus Magazine who replied wryly to my opener: “Aren’t we all still trying to figure it all out?” Read the full interview here.

  1. Great article Cam. Really enjoyed reading in more depth about your photographic work journey over the past 5 years or so.

    • Cheers Rob, my next talk is for VCE Top Arts photography students at the Melbourne Museum at the end of this month. I’m looking forward to presenting a distilled collection of photog-career advice for the mini-adults.
