It's so nice to see your work being displayed - whether it be on someone's facebook page, a leaflet, or on their website. Today we have seen our work in a few places, so I just wanted to thank all those who we have worked with in the last year. It's been a pleasure to provide free of charge photo shoots and to see you then use these for your promotion.
We've had a lot of editing to get to grips with this week - and it's been really enjoyable. Any photographer will tell you that editing is often the least liked part of this job, with all the fun being taking the actual shots!
From a shoot on the weekend with a mother and daughter, to some beautiful landscapes shot abroad, everything is unique whenever we edit. It's amazing to watch the pictures unfold and tell a story - whether it be of a place, or of that person. With every portrait shoot we aim to capture the personality of the model - so we have to treat every shoot as unique. This is all part of the personalised service we offer.
We finally refined our business plan this week - quite a scary prospect for a photographer who is generally more comfortable with the creative side of things. Looks like that background in accounts has paid off! 20 pages later and the next few years have been planned out, and budgeted for, tax plans sorted and reminders set.
After a year of offering free of charge photo-shoots to all that want them, we will now be charging from the start of the new tax year (6th April 2014). The prices will be going on the website very shortly.
However, there will be some limited free photoshoots available for anyone needing corporate or fashion shoots. Please contact us for further information.
Also coming in the next few years we will be hoping to offer a personal styling package with photoshoot option for those that want it.
I'd like to thank everyone again for their support - couldn't have got this far without it.
