There’s one thing I’ve noticed over the last two years, particularly when I’m in the Caribbean: being a female photographer is a major ‘perk.’
When there’s a big, crowded event — whether it’s the Annual Grenada Sailing Festival, for instance, or even a live concert – there are many photographers around, all shooting around each other. However, they are often male. And that for me, translates into warmer reactions from the locals or from the performing artist, and in turn, shots and angles that no one else gets. Of course, that’s still only half the battle.
