The Hungarian photographic legend Andre Kertesz once wrote:
“The best solution is to find an agreeable job which provides you with a living, and spend the rest of your time and energy on photography. This way you do not need to make any compromises. Commercial photographers must comply with their clients’ requests. Only amateurs can do what they feel like. True happiness lies therein.”
James earns his living as a sound engineer and does what he feels like as a photographer, and this occasionally offers him true happiness.
