Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Racing Ahead

Last week I had my week away in Apollo Bay, and while it was fantastic it almost means that this week I have to hit the ground running. There is so much to do and not enough hours. I know once the magazine is out things will calm down again, but there is a lot to get done before then. Magazine Let’s start with that. All the articles are in, well except mine, and they have been, for the most part, edited. The next step is going to be putting it all together and getting it ready to sell to those that want to buy it.  Maxwell’s have been fantastic and are giving us something for a give away with the first one. I’m not going to say what, you will have to wait for the magazine to come out. Book My book on Banyule Flats is starting to get to the final stage. I am in the process of picking all the images for the book. I am doing a wide selection, then it …

Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Moving Forward

Another busy week, but I need to start finding time to work on this magazine that I am going forward with. The weather has been a bit disappointing and so I have been cancelling things and changing dates, but then again, it also means days at home to work on other projects. One on One Photography Sessions The weather hasn’t been great for them, but we are determined to do them.  I’ve had to reorganize a couple, but the weather is meant to get better.  If you are in Melbourne, snow is predicted in the nearby mountains on Wednesday. Very early for snow, I think it is an indication of what this winter is going to be like. I wanted to say that if you want to learn to use your camera, or maybe just go out and take photos with me, then you can book your own One on One Photography session with me.  I charge $280 for them, and they are over 4 hours, but you can do it in one session, or do …

Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: The Planning Continues

It does seem like this year is all over the place, that I have my fingers in so many pies hoping that one of them will pay off and be fantastic for me, a great opportunity that leads to other things.  It is a bizarre world we live in.  I’m not complaining, okay maybe a little, but I guess the main thing is that I am still trying to get me and my photography out there.  I guess I hope that persistence will pay off eventually. Behind the Scenes I was sent a request recently, and while I didn’t have time to do it, I thought I would mention it and Jasmine here.  This is what it is: I’ve basically started a link up for photography bloggers to show their behind the scenes. The post does not have to be primarily behind the scenes, it can be your interpretation. All you have to do is add your link to your post by clicking the blue button at the bottom of this post: Behind the Scenes and comment …

Tuesdays Bits and Bobs: Sorting Through it All

It has been a complete surprise to me how busy the start of the year has been.  The last couple of years it has been so slow at the start and taken a couple of months to get going, but this year I feel like I have started the year running.  There always seems to be something that needs to be done.  I keep forgetting things I have to do, and then I remember later on.  It does feel like there isn’t enough time in the day.  I just need to start being more productive with my time.  Of course, being busy doesn’t mean I don’t love it.  I do, and most of what I’ve been busy with has to do with taking photos, and there has been a lot of that. Newsletter It is coming together.  I have to do some videos for it, well tutorial ones, but should get those done in the next couple of days.  I was having a hard time trying to work out if I should do Lightroom, Photoshop, or Elements, …

Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Getting Things Done

Today I wanted to talk more about what I need to get done, as really the new year has been slow and I need to start getting on with things.  Time seems to be getting away from me, so I do have to be stricter with myself.  I need to stop wasting time on other things. The things I am trying to get organised the most are the classes, so much of my time has been spent getting those ready to start advertisig. Classes in the Mallee I really want to get going with classes.  I have classes in the Mallee organised for the long weekend in March, the 7th, 8th and 9th of March.  I am going to be teaching more about organising your photos and some basic editing using Lightroom.  We will go and take photos first though, that is always fun.  I am going to be doing this class twice, in Swan Hill on the 7th and then in Hopetoun on the 9th.  I need to get some posters done and will …

Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Looking Forward to 2015

Usually when I do the Tuesday Bits and Bobs it is more a short term look at the week ahead and what I am going to be doing.  For this last one for 2014 I thought I could do one that was more about what I am hoping to achieve in the year ahead. Maybe in 12 months I can look back and see how much of this I achieved. Newsletter I have decided to start a newsletter.  At this stage it will be once a month, I think I could manage that and then I will see how I go.  The idea of the newsletter would be like a personal letter from me, I will have tutorials, tips, and links to things that I think will be good.  I will also include information on courses I am teaching and such. I am going to start this next month, in January.  The newsletter, at this stage will be free, if it gets too big I might have to rethink things, but at this stage, I can’t …

Friday’s Bits and Bobs

It has been an amazing ten days, and I have to say I am writing this with my eyes hanging out of my head.  I am so tired, and really looking forward to just hanging around the house today. Of course, there are things that have to be done, and I am looking forward to some time alone with my photos.  I haven’t really had a chance to play with any and see their potential, but hopefully things will settle down now. Tripping to New York I have been meaning to tell you for awhile, but haven’t had a chance, but it looks like I could be going to New York next year.  I have a sponsor who loves my work and often gives me very generous donations, and they have decided that I photograph Melbourne so well, then they want me to leave my comfort zone and see how I would photograph New York. I am so excited. It won’t be until around May next year, but that is good.  They are paying for …
