I remember being in a psychology lecture at university and the question was asked why do humans sleep.
It seemed like a no brainer to me.
Isn’t it because we are tired??
The lecturer went on, ‘Yes we sleep because we are tired but why do humans need to fall into an unconscious state in order to revive themselves and why do we need 8 hours a night. Why can’t we exist and perform by having mirconaps or just reduce our metabolism and activity like fish but stay alert to danger?’
This question still intrigues me mainly because we often accept what we do as normal and don’t question the why behind it.
It’s like the question: Why do humans need connection?
We come out of the womb looking to bond. We seek places to ‘fit in and belong’ all through life, often knowing that when we are part of something bigger than ourselves we feel more fulfilled and whole.
Religion, clubs and organisations flourish as people with common mindsets come together to connect, but why do we do it? What does it give us?

We’ve all got one… the friend who’s always got a camera in their hand… that’s me! Always with the camera, the photos and the memories. The friend who always gives photos for gifts! I’m also the friend who nags about keeping photos safe, and most importantly sharing and using those beautiful treasures. Now I get to be that person for my clients. The person with the information, the camera scanner and the help to keep their treasures safe and share with their families.
Moving from photography to photo organising wasn’t really in the plan… then again neither was 2020 or a pandemic! It did, however, give me the time and opportunity to get deeply lost in the world of photo organising, write a class for my clients and friends, and think deeply about the future of my business. They say a change is as good as a holiday… and given we weren’t going anywhere and I couldn’t work in 2020… I changed my business from taking the photos to helping clients with their own photos. So, Dallas ScottPittock, Professional Photo Organiser and owner of Treasured Collections Photo Organising it is! And I’m loving every minute, challenge, client and project! Change is often challenging, but out of challenge often comes the best parts of life. My passion has forever been photos! I used to create them, but now I get to help save, use and share them!
