Happy New Year – My Plans for 2016

The festivities are all but over and life begins to return to some form of normality now, so I would like to take the time to wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope you all had a fantastic festive season. I know I did.

I received a bunch of stuff for the upcoming craft show season that will polish off my stall and, if I do say so myself, make it look incredible! The shows will start around April time so stay tuned to see the result!

I also got my long awaited Wacom Tablet, which I’m hoping will help me enormously with my post processing workflow.

Plans for 2016

I outlined these vaguely in my last blog post, but I thought I’d put them in a dedicated post so I can review these as time goes on.

  • First on the agenda is an overhaul to my portfolio on this website. It’s been a long time since I updated it so I’m basically going to be starting over with all of my favourite images so far. I also plan on implementing a way for my images to be sold directly on the website.
  • Obviously improving my photography and inspiring more people with my images is an ongoing process, and all I hope is that I can end 2016 a better photographers than I started it.
  • I’m also planning on writing a book or two, and I am planning on giving at least one of these away free to all my email subscribers! So if you haven’t signed up yet make sure to enter your email address at the top of this page.
  • Getting more involved with the printing process is a major goal of mine. Outsourcing to a printing lab means I lose control over how my photographs look, and a less than perfect print wastes shipping costs and time. Unfortunately A3 professional printers don’t come cheap!
  • I’m planning on going to a lot more shows in the coming year, including not just craft shows but also agricultural shows where I can hone my equine photography and continue improving.

For the short term though, I just hope the endless barrage of storms that are whirling into the Lake District finally come to an end. I’ll leave you with one of the very few images I have managed to get so far this winter, but the poor weather hasn’t stopped me trying!
