I guess this is as good a place as any to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

My thoughts, like those of many on EPZ, go out to Pete and his family. Let's hope he makes a full and speedy recovery Smile

I doubt I'll be doing any more shoots this year! I managed 27 in 2008. I was pleased to work with some familiar faces, so thanks go to:

Ruby - 5 shoots in 2008 (+1 with Liz)
Sophie (Love de Carvalho) - 4 shoots in 2008
Liz (Lucifera) - 1 shoot (with Ruby) in 2008
Hannah (Phoenix) - 1 shoot in 2008
Liv - 2 shoots in 2008
Lucy (Evelien Cascada) - 1 shoot in 2008
Anna - 1 shoot in 2008
Jean - 1 shoot in 2008

I was also pleased to work with some nice new people. Thanks go to:

Holly - 7 shoots in 2008
Hanah (Sakura Avalon) - 3 shoots in 2008
Kerry - 1 shoot in 2008

Alas, I was unable to work with all the new models I had planned to but I hope to catch up in 2009. Already I have added even more names to my list Smile Everything has been set back at least another year so if I get to work with some of these by 2011 it will be a surprise Smile

It would be impossible to say which model I have enjoyed working with the most this year or even which was the most enjoyable shoot. But I can say, without any hesitation whatsoever, that the most memorable shoot has to be the Deviant Nation shoot with Sakura at Shoreham Fort. I did the shoot as part of an exchange and copyright was transfered as a result. I believe I am still allowed to post a couple of images (albeit with the DN logo) and if that is the case I will certainly do so, if not on here then on my website or in my Model Mayhem portfolio.

Plans for 2009 include finally sorting out a home studio (it might happen). In addition to that I will be using a hire studio for the very first time. It's a scary prospect but essential if I'm to make any real progress as I have practically zero experience in that area.

Goodies I must have in 2009 (they're absolutely essential) include two new lenses: a fast wide-angle and a tele-zoom of up to about 200mm for my K10D; a second Pentax body; a compact digital (something I can carry round all the time) and an Asus eee PC. Will these make me a better photographer? Yes, of course Grin

Anyway, thanks to everyone who has looked at my photos this year especially those of you who clicked and/or commented Grin

Until the next time...
