New Website!

My old website was holding me back as I tried to do some things and couldn’t really, so I decided to build a new one from scratch.

 

Some old links will not work and this new site is missing lots of content at the moment, including part of my portfolio, but soon enough everything will be back in place!

 

I hope you enjoy the new look!

2017 – Year in Review

At around this time last year I wrote a 2016 Year in Review with a lot of information about how things went. This year though, so many things have happened that when thinking about my year review I decided not to get into that much detail as it would take forever and no one would have time to read it!!

First, I would like to apologise for my lack in updating this blog. I promise I will try to be more active around here in the New Year, as well as getting a new website designed 🙂

So, keeping it short, this is basically what happened this year: I was made redundant from my last IT job as half the business was sold and decided to give full time photography a go. It’s being hard so far but at the moment a lot better than it was until end of May (when I finally got my first paid client). Then eventually I started shooting for an agency, became the official photographer for an awesome designer event, had a few commissioned magazine covers and here I am now, still a full time photographer. I also moved apartments and built an awesome home studio, which has changed things a lot for myself and my images. And to end the year well, I bought a new amazing camera (with what was left of my savings)! And of course, the new friends I made and the strengthening of the friendshipes I already had!

During this time, feelings of frustration and achievement were mixed and all happening at once, but I did learn that it might take a business at least 18 months to get off the ground, so the fact that it didn’t take me that long to be able to pay my bills is definitely a good thing!

Now I will just leave you with an overload of images I created this year, with some amazing people I met along the way. I hope you enjoy!

A very Merry Christmas to all and hopes that 2018 will bring even more excitement and creativity!

 

Please note I will not post photos of all the people I worked with this year.
