I really can't believe how quickly this year seems to have passed. It's incredible to think we're halfway through November and inevitably thoughts have turned towards Christmas. For a photographer like me, who mainly uses natural light for photography this is a pretty dull time of year. The gorgeous autumn colours that covered the ground have been turned to a soggy mush by the wind and rain. Rather than take pictures I'm doing housekeeping and making plans. Naturally I still have a large stock of images and I'll share some of those but new shoots may be a thin on the ground.
You may be wondering why this blog is called open for business so I'll tell you. At long last I've published a list of the services I can offer and a basic price list. I've effectively "shut" my Etsy shop because I don't think it was the right place for me or my work. To replace it I've been working on a shop page for my own website. Mostly cutting out the middle man is a better deal for everyone. They will be more on this in future blogs and I imagine some kind of "grand opening"!
I've also published what I think of as my mission statement , I never want to take the same pictures as everyone else and this statement puts that philosophy out there in black and white. I want to be quirky! A bit random, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I do take pictures at events but they're not always the shots you expect.... you'll rarely hear me shout "say cheese!"
I hope you've enjoyed reading about my plans and of course I'm always happy to hear from people about my work or blogs.
