Progress and Change

Well hello there

Here we are again, another life decision to be made and another road to travel down.

Many years ago, I completed my freelance journalism course, and here I am now as a contributor to Bay News of the Area.

Photography is still a huge part of life for me and will always be.

I am enjoying this new road in my life and am meeting the most extraodinary people with amazing stories and life experiences to share.

Sports reporting certainly wasn't a topic ...

Value of a pro photographer

Posted on 6 September, 2016 at 4:30 Comments comments (0)

Well hello there ...

it was pointed out to me recently that people do not value pro photographers anymore due to the amount of people with mobile phones with cameras.

Whilst I agree, and also acknowledge the improvements being made with the capabilities of these devices, for me, I liken it to flour, I am a lousy cook, infact I dislike cooking immensley, no amount of super refined and refined some more flour can result in a delicious cake by me - that's a fact.

My point being...

Well hello there ...

This year has simply flown by,  I;m struggling to come to terms with the fact that we are now in September and spring has sprung.  I have my skates on and making huge steps to getting my studio created and ready in time for my exciting reveal which will be beginning of October, crikey, only 27 or so days away!

I promise you won't be disappointed, it is so very exciting I can hardly wait myself!  And before we know it, we will be exchanging best ...

Clouds

Well hello there ...

Do you see things in the clouds?  I do, I love the clouds and looking at them.  I love it when they are white as this generally means a fabulous sunset of which I am a huge fan.

But on a serious note, someone I knew passed away recently, I was unable to attend the funeral, and was quite contemplative as I was relaxing in the pool, thinking about their last, weeks, days,  hours and then their passing.  I had not felt the need to cry at this ...

Three month's really!

Posted on 16 August, 2016 at 2:05 Comments comments (0)

 

Hard to believe it is three, yes three months since I last posted here, how slack!

 

And here I am wanting to do a blog on a daily basis! Epic fail here I'd say, but hey, at least I'm back.

 

So for the last three months, I've started a Cert IV in Small Business Management , bought a new super duper lense and then of course needed a new tripod to handle the weight. Body and lens = 3.8kg!!! I'm expecting if I hand hold too often my left boobie ...

The Power of a Casual Comment

Posted on 28 May, 2016 at 23:25 Comments comments (0)

Well hello there ...

Last night I went to a gathering and met some incredible people and witnessed first hand the bond which has been created through a product called Scentsy.

As I said in my previous blog, I honestly feel casual comments can be life-changing, never more has this been true of the person who signed up under me when I was selling this product.  A young man by the name of Nathan, met him on a wet and windy day at the local markets, my casual comment to him was '...

Inspiration

Well hello there

Sometimes in life we have a conversation with someone who makes a flippant comment about something you should consider.  Yesterday was one of those conversations.  Whilst having a chin wag with my neighbour, she suggested I look into advertising with What's on in our Backyard.  As my boys are older, I never get to see this publication anymore.  Anyway, I researched the magazine and sure enough it is something I could see me advertising in.

Running a Business

Posted on 26 May, 2016 at 8:50 Comments comments (0)

Well hello there

Coming to the completion of my Cert IV in small business management, I am over-whelmed with the amount of paperwork required to run a business.  

During my studies I have taken a step back from actual photography to establish some behind the scenes strategies, (I think ignorance has its benefits though), so a marketing plan, business plan, social media plan, printing plan, publishing plan - ( I am seriously all planned out), is starting to take shape both in ...

Tears of Joy

Well hello there

There is nothing more rewarding than doing a 'job' you are totally passionate about.  I am very fortunate in this respect on two counts, I have my job in dementia and my passion for photography on all other days.

Yesterday, I delivered a photobook to a client, this was from the family re-union I did in March 2016.  The client was eagerly turning the pages to see more and more, I was humbled when she looked at me with tears in her eyes followed by a heart...

Happy New Year

Well hello there

Can you believe this is my first post for 2016!  Crazy, where has the first five months of this year gone?  Best be getting my skates on to commence the upcoming doggie book for 2016, although I have already started with three beautiful dogs last week, and 8 others waiting for their model call. This year, I'm going to spice things up a little, but you will surely have to wait until nearer the time to find out!

A calendar for sure, as last years sold out ...
