2011 for Me

What do I make of this year

Well with 2012 just round the corner I can say I have had a late flourish with my photography, however it's always been that way with me. I don't know what it is but I've never been a very active photographer from say March until September. It appears over the last few years I never actually start taking photographs for my myself until the nights start drawing in and it get's freezing outside. The light I know at this time is fantastic so It could be something due to this, or the fact that I dot have to get up at a ridiculous time in the morning to take sunrise images.

Anyway that's the way it' been but I'm really hoping in 2012 I can change that for the good, I have a mode of transport now which really helps. Not having to rely on the unreliable and ridiculously expensive public transport is a blessing.

Plans for 2012

I really want 2012 to have more travelling opportunities at home and abroad, home being Scotland there are endless possibilities to take great land and seascape photographs. However I do have a sister and about to be sisters moving across to the other side of the world in Canada, and they have been telling me that I'm at the right age to explore other working possibilities in Canada. It sounds great and with my other real passion being mountain biking it certainly does sound very exciting. As long a the bears and the mountain lions stay away from the trails I will be very happy.

What else do I want to achieve in 2012

Well I want to be able to take better portraits using Flash photography, I don't know what it is; but taking pictures of people terrifies me. There are so many button on the back of my flash gun that I don't have a clue what to push. I did one upon a time do a bit of studio portrait photography but I don't remember much which is annoying. However more than any other photography this is the one I want to get better at. So I'm thinking of taking a course or two this year to improve so I don't have to turn down paid portrait jobs any more.

My highlights of the Year

My highlights would have to be getting short listed then picked to appear in the Photography Monthly's special photography book release, which featured the best images uploaded to their website over a 12month period. I had 2 images appear which was great and one received and Editors choice.

Next was to appear in this months (December) issue of Amateur Photography Magazine after entering their Round 10 Shooting at Night Competition.

My Feature


Just a wee thank you to everyone that has looked and commented on my work throughout 2011, really appreciate your feed back. Hopefully there will be more action from me in 2012 and I hope you all have a great New Year.
