Hi welcome to my gallery... I'm fairly new to this game, but I would like to thank all of those who have already voted or commented on my pictures for their support, there is no greater encouragement or reward than someone showing they like your efforts.
I thought I would just write an update to this as it was written in March 2011, and time has marched on so quickly. I'd like to think I'm getting to grips with this, but I know I've still only scratched the surface, so I continue to learn, in some parts guided by the kind and supportive members of this site... Thank you all.

Hello all,
So a couple of weeks ago all my A2 sized images turned up and were immediately delivered to the framing centre. How exciting it was to see my images in print and at a reasonable size! Thank you to Paul Morgan who made a spectacular job of the printing!

Then last week it got even more exciting as I had to go and sign and number all the mounts before framing started, and finally yesterday when I got to go and check all the completed work.

It's a somewhat simpler collection as follows:

11 X A2 prints, mounted and framed to 30 x 22.5 inches
2 x Aluminium dibond at 40 x 22.5 inches
9 x Aluminium dibond at 8 x 6 inches

To accompany the exhibition there are 20 mounted A4 prints and 15 individual notecards

Invitations to the special viewing were printed and posted
Info cards for each displayed image have been designed and printed to be displayed alongside the image
signed labels for the reverse of each image with details as for the info cards
Wine and nibbles ordered
Costings all worked out
a selected postcard will be given to each person that attends
Visitors book done
Hanging plans printed
contract signed
publicity done by the arts centre
"Get in date" is tomorrow so its time to collect the images and start the hanging process with the centre staff.

On an emotional level, its hard to believe it's happening and scary to say the least. I keep telling myself that it's not about selling images, just self promotion, but its difficult.

I couldn't have done it without the support of my wife Clare who has had Benjamin many mornings whilst I've been out enjoying myself, given me confidence when I didn't think my images were good enough and who has suffered my bad moods when things have gone wrong.

Opening day is Friday... wish me luck!!!
