Back in January of 2007 I had the bright idea of taking half a year off work and opening my own shop front gallery in a major shopping center on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. In the past I had done a range of direct selling to the public via local markets and casual leasing on weekends in different shopping centers on the Northern Beaches and I always walked away with money in my pocket or at the very least broke even. I felt ready for another challenge and the opportunity to really see where my passion for photography could take me. I had no idea the kind of roller coaster ride I was in for and at the end of six months I walked away a season soldier of the retail word with a lot of war stories and an experience only money can buy.
