Time for a little personal note to the blog. It has been and still remains a busy Summer period, more work is being picked up by publications and some positive vibes coming my way from various outlets. So now is certainly not the time to take my foot off the pedal, I’m still going 100 miles an hour, only this time I feel it may not be a dead end track. It’s the passion that keeps me running with 4am starts and 12pm bedtimes, the love of my craft that sees me accepting commissions despite a full diary and the faith in my ability that sees me do this with a smile on my face.
Still with all that’s happening I still find that photography also acts as my way of dealing with the world around me and remembering it’s unseens and easily forgotten. Here are a few pieces from a couple of days down in London a few weeks ago. You’ll notice a heavy lack of people in the shots yet the feeling of human presence, this seems to be something I’m drawn to in my personal work lately without really looking for it.

The Monday morning blog post.
Just a quick peek at one of the finals from the shoot for Dragana Perisic last weekend.
Things are gradually coming to a close for the year, sure there are still a couple of jobs hanging out for shoot dates but all in all the time for reflection is almost upon me.
What does the Winter slow down mean for me? well I get to do the accounts which is always fun . . . . . . . also it’s time to really nail down the portfolio and solidify my online, print and iPad versions so they all pretty much work in tandem. It’s time to look back over the year and see where I got my breaks and where I made my mistakes, lessons learned and battle scars earned. The ball is rolling and I need to make sure it’s still going the right way to get to where I want it to be. Plus it’s time to just look back and remember what I’ve actually done in the last 12 months. This time last year I was coming up to finishing up the 365 project (thankfully) this year I’m glad I didn’t continue as I’m almost certain it would have fallen by the wayside.
However it isn’t all work work work, the time is here to see friends and family, catch up on what’s been happening with folk and generally have a good old fashion knees up.
Worry not though there’s still a couple of fresh shoots due before the year’s out so I’ll be back before you need to hang your new calendars on the wall.
I thought as I’ve not really blogged much lately that I’d throw a few teasers up from the latest shoot.
It was a long day and I managed to cover plenty of miles from setting foot outside my door and setting foot back inside late in the evening but very much worth the effort and hard work from all those involved.
More to come once I finish up the final files but for now here’s some peeks at whats to come.
