- I have walked backwards into (very hot) studio lights and burnt my back and arms
- I've tripped over said studio lights and leads more often than strictly necessary
- I've hit my head off cameras. In all honesty I'm not entirely sure how even I manage that
- I generally drop my film in the darkroom. Seeing as I've usually opened the film from it's casing at this point, I'm not allowed to switch the light back on and there's no red light in the processing rooms, so I spend a good 10 minutes, sitting on the floor, trying to find said film rolling across the tiny room. In the pitch black darkness
- This usually results in me hitting my head off one of the baths with the chemicals in them
- And walking into the door
- And due to the darkness I've possibly put my film in the wrong baths and resulted in a blank film. My tutor enjoyed proving me wrong when I tried to blame it on him loading the film wrong in the first place. No such luck...
- Hitting my head off various over head things in the studio
- Dropping developed film on the floor of the dimly lit darkroom. This place results in many a trod on foot, hitting your head off the enlarger, and lots of paper cuts
- On location shoots are dangerous as hell - I went to an indoor skate park and almost got flattened countless times... it's not really my choice of ways to go
- General heavy equipment that gets dropped on various feet and heads
- Static shocks when the plugs don't agree with you... urgh
- When your food shoot goes wrong, and you have no choice but to eat the melting chocolate gateau and just use another random cake for the shoot. Yes, that was a very difficult day..(!)
- Fingers getting caught in various scanners.
- And weird props people tend to use in their own shoots in the other spaces in the studio, including a stuffed life sized sheep which near gave me a heart attack (and giggles from my friends..)

Photography is dangerous.
Considering I'm really, really clumsy, you can imagine it's a brilliant combination.
I find it annoying I only ever blog when something like an admission happens, and even more annoyingly, thats why I'm blogging this ti...
This country (or in most cases, the world), is pathetic about disabilities and those who have them. I can only speak from my own experiences...
A month ago, we got back from an amazing 9 days in Orlando, Florida. The first proper holiday we've been on in 4 years, saving up for so...
