This will, most probably, be my last blog post of 2011 so it’s time to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! This year has been very successful for me and I’ve managed to expand my photography business despite the gloomy economic outlook, although if the news articles are anything to go by, 2012 will be even worse… I have a lot planned for 2012, filling the first three months with a lot of new photography before my craft fairs and exhibitions start again for the year. Perhaps the biggest news is that I shall be starting photography tutoring, starting off with small groups and one-to-ones – this is something I’ve been asked about several times which has caused me to think seriously about it. To start with I shall be running a trial or two and see how I go from there, so look out for an announcement in the first couple of months next year – the first one or two will be run free to help me get a feel for it and also to get valuable feedback before deciding to proceed with it.
Here is a photo I took a long time ago in the Brecons – I parked at Blaen-y-glyn and whilst putting my boots on, this robin came to say hello. I had real trouble trying to photograph it as it kept coming too close, even flying in and out of the car! It is my most seasonal photo to date!
