Hello stranger. Yeah yeah I know, long time no see. It seems that when things are really busy, I just can’t find the time to do all of the things that a “good” business person does (like blogging, updating Facebook etc…). But I do try, really!
Rest assured, I have plenty of good excuses! I’ve had the busiest month yet, with jobs taking up every second of my available time. This is good! After the wedding, I came home to some family portraits, a new baby to meet and photograph, and some exciting commercial work.
I spent a weekend in late September photographing the Handmade Market again. I’ll share some of my favourites here soon but to see a sample you can visit the Handmade Canberra Facebook Page where they have uploaded a bunch of the images I took. I had such a good time again, and I was lucky to work one-on-one with some great stallholders. The feedback I’ve received has been overwhelmingly good as well, which of course makes it even better!
I have some other commercial jobs coming up which I’m really excited about, I can’t wait to share them with you when they’re done.
And in other big news… My new website is being designed as I write, I’m really looking forward to launching it and changing things up quite a bit from the current format.
I also have some big plans in the works for a studio/office/meeting space renovation! It’s very hard not to spend every spare second I have researching and planning for this, it’s too exciting.
I’ve struggled a lot in the past year, trying to decide what kind of photographer I am, which direction to take my business in etc. etc. A lot of successful photographers focus on one area and do it really well. I find it hard to choose just one and have tortured myself over this very topic for almost a year now… The other morning an answer just seemed to come to me, really easily, without me sitting there wracking my brain. I feel like an enormous weight has been lifted off my shoulders and can’t wait to start sharing with you as I make the transition.
What’s with the picture? I found this four leaf clover the other day. I just looked down and there it was. I’m not superstitious but I do tend to read things as signs and took this to mean that I’m on the right track with all of the big decisions and plans I’ve been making. I have a feeling it will all work out just fine.
