Big Life Changes – Going Freelance + Autumn Photos

November 26, 2017

Hello everyone! I thought I would write a little blog post to highlight some changes that have been going on around here recently and to let you know a bit about where I am at. It’s also a chance for me to share some photos from my personal life too, so grab a biscuit and let’s settle down.

The first big thing to change is that I am no longer working full time as a designer, and instead I am going to be working freelance. A lot of things influenced this decision (health, money etc.) and it definitely happened a lot sooner than I or anyone had really expected it to. It’s been a little over a week now, and I’m actually settling into it really well – I’m trying not to think about paying for Christmas or next month’s bills, but hey, it’ll come.

Because I’m now free… well, pretty much every day, I have been able to focus so much more on making my website and blog how I want it to be. I’m generally a really self motivated person anyway, so getting to work on something I love so much all the time has been lovely so far.

That being said – I do need to ask for your help. It would be really useful to me if you can help by sharing my website and facebook posts for your friends and followers to see as I’m just getting started and need a bit of an exposure boost. Even just clicking ‘like’ on a facebook post can help me get in front of more people and I would be so, so grateful.

Family photography is going to be really central in my work in the future, and for December and January I have an offer where the session fee for photos is at a 25% discount at just £150. Family photos around Christmas time are not only popular but incredibly precious and become really treasurable keepsakes. This time of the year is so much about showing love for your family so why not get some pictures of that too? Sessions can be bought for yourself or as a gift for friends and family in the future. If you or anyone is interested, please do check out my family portfolio and get in touch.

Of course I am also available for other kinds of photography too so definitely do get in touch and we can discuss things in more detail.

This here blog is going to be a bit of a mixed old bag. I’ve thought about making a separate blog for more personal or lifestyle type posts, but I’ve decided to keep it all here, where it can be seen in one place. There are options to filter the kinds of posts you see, so if you’re only here for one specific type of thing, that’s cool too. So there may be bits here about lifestyle, health, and entertainment too – all my favourite things.

There are loads of different ways you can stay up to date with what I’m doing, and I really do encourage you to come on this journey with me. The main places are Bloglovin’, Facebook and Instagram. I’m hoping to start a youtube channel too this week (wish me luck!) which will be more for my fine art and conceptual photography so if you’re interested in how I do that do follow me on one or more of the links above and it’ll get to you in one way or another.

So now I ask the question – what do you want to see? Is there anything about photography that has always intrigued you and you want to know more about? Are you wanting to get more skilled at photography yourself? Is there something that you would like me to review? Please, please, do let me know. I want to create this content for this blog, but without readers it would be nothing. And that reader is YOU. So, hi!

So there we have it. I think I’ve just about covered everything I’ve got to say at the moment. I hope you’ve enjoyed these pictures too – I can’t wait to show you more of the photos I take of my life day to day.

I will leave you with a couple of images from the Weald and Downland Living Museum Christmas Fair 2017 which I went to today – Christmas fairs – ugh, is there anything more festive? I love them.

I’ll be back very soon but for now keep warm and have a great day.
