Doing big contract work for clients is great but being able to shoot on your own terms carries a more personal payback. As I shared some of this work I made connections and friends. I was recently invited to a cypher, a meetup at someone's studio/event space whom I will talk about in a minute. They also called in practice. I was able to shoot freely as they danced but in the end the camera was down and I was up with them trying to free myself and let go. I will say that's easier to do these days with a camera in my hand.
