What's going on and any deals that may be on the go
12/3/13 - Such a competitive market for photographers and it gets tougher every day as more and more camera lovers try to turn their hobby into a paying career. For me, there are 3 elements that I concentrate on :-
* Quality Service - this is where my years of dealing with clients while I was in banking has paid off
* Quality Photographs - I constantly strive to better myself. I want each wedding shoot to be better than the last one
* Value for Money - times are tough for everyone and I try to reflect this in my (sometimes too) low prices
11/6/13 - just back from 3 days up in sunny Fort William where I was marshalling at the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. Best year yet - helped of course by almost wall to wall sunshine. One year, I must go as a spectator as it is a great event for photographers even though getting that great shot is not as easy as it looks
13/6/13 - So far, this year has been quieter than last - everyone looking for a bargain and of course more photographers trying to grab their share of the business.
I'll be attending the next Falkirk Wedding Show in SEptember 2013 - so watch out for me there and come and have an informal chat about your wedding photography
20/6/13 Now have myself a GoPro Hero3 camera - may be incorporated into my wedding photography to give that photographer's view of the proceedings on video
24/6/13 - £25 photo-shoot deal was very popular and so it may be repeated
11/9/13 - Had a busy spell with portrait sessions - have decided to keep the cost down at £30 for a month or two and see how it goes
11/9/13 - well 2013 has not been my best year for weddings but 2014 is looking very good, in fact, I have no availability now from end June to September - hoping the upcoming Wedding Show at Falkirk Town Hall will bring in some business
25/6/14 - Apologies for the lack of updates!!! - studio now renamed as Studio 24 - still the same great deals on the go - currently only £30 for June and July
17/11/14 - Weddings all done for this year, unless there is a last minute panic booking !!!!! Looking to change the way I deliver my images at Photoshoots to cut out the physical disc part (although this will still be an option with a small added cost) - images will be delivered to clients which will place their images on their phone/tablet within their very own personal App - an exciting new way to deliver and view images - watch this space.
20/8/15 : Had my busiest wedding period this summer - 4 weddings in the space of 6 weeks - thought I'd hate it but it was great - did put a bit of pressure on the processing schedule but still managed to get photos out to each couple within 2 weeks of their wedding.
