I’ve had a busy start to the year, and although making a living being a photographer can be hard work, the variety of things I’ve done thus far remind me why it’s such a great job!
Although this a quiet time of year for weddings, I’ve booked lots of couples who are getting the year off to an organised start. I always make an effort to visit couples who express an interest in making a booking, and meeting new people is one of my favourite things.
At the start of January I was running animation and light-painting workshops at Venue Cymru. I’m always amazed at the creativity of youngsters, so this was a lot of fun.
I’ve also done a bit of commercial work – photographing stairlifts (!), furniture and kitchens for use on company websites, I’ve photographed a Welsh language conference of loads of head-teachers, an opening of an art gallery, and Wales’ first minister Carwyn Jones paying a visit to Bethesda quarry.
And the next few weeks look set to be even more busy and varied!
I have wedding fayres coming up at the Celtic Royal in Caernarfon this Sunday, then Seiont Manor (Feb 21st) and the George in Llandudno (feb 28th).
I’m doing a fund raiser for Cancer Research where people can make donations in return for studio style photos on Feb 17th at the Anglesey Arms.
I’ve got some Google virtual tour clients booked in. And then I’m photographing museum artefacts for Bangor University.
Writing all this down makes me realise why it seems time is going fast. Time to book a holiday I think.
