While updating my website and becoming involved with numerous organisations in the photographic sense, I found myself needing to write a biography. I admit that writing is not my strength, however, without a doubt, writing a biography has been one of the hardest challenges I have come across over the last year. I have searched the web for months and looked at different photographers biography's and artist statements and felt so lost. How to write one without feeling like a "wanker" or how to write one that even read remotely interesting.
Recently I came across a really helpful article in the Wedding Photojournalist Association that helped pinpoint some key aspects that helped me at least get started. I do recommend checking out the following link. While it is directed at wedding photojournalists, it most certainly is not limited to just that field.
