There are so many new things in the works for this year it is starting to make my head spin! I have been shooting a lot, although, some “divisions” of the studio will be closing after this year. There are other business roads I am taking and I am reorganizing the studio to be more effective towards the type of photography I wish to pursue.
At the end of last year I said I was done. Then I said I would pick and choose. Now I’m going to be even more picky.
With that being said, I don’t know if I will actively pursue fashion anymore. I do like certain elements of it and I will continue to shoot in a fashion style and the same can be said for glamour and nudes and lifestyle. I have been doing this a long time and I am working on a plan which will allow me to continue to be a photographer while not having to compete with all of the people out there who wish to shoot for free. Sorry, but there are certain things I need to get paid for, other things, not so much.
I don’t think I’ll ever really put down the camera. But it is nice to not have the phone ringing and the inbox of email overflowing every day. It is almost like becoming a specialist, if you want what I do, here I am. If you want something boring and blah, I’m sure there is someone out there willing to shoot it for you, just not me.
What is my next shoot? No idea at this time, but I do have a few lined up for the next several weeks. I guess you’ll just have to come back and see what’s been happening. 😉
Here is yet another one from my most recent shoot with Roarie.
