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.
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.
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 can be narrowed down. I still have to try and get a few images, but only a few. The next thing will be to see if I have enough photos to cover all the seasons, or whether we have to wait for the summer for me to get more. Will find out soon.
I am trying to work out if I should do more books. I like working on them, so I am wondering if, once this one is done, I should try doing some more. It is an interesting process. I was catching up with a friend today and she thinks I should try one of those crowd funding schemes to raise money for another one. It is an good thought and I might have to give it a go.
Learning from Me
Teaching people photography is a great thing to do, but seems not something a lot of people want from me. People seem to prefer getting other people instead, I will keep offering classes, but I don’t know for how long. I get great testimonials from the people I do teach, I’m told I am good, but then no one else signs up. It is so hard working out what is going to work and what isn’t. Trying to be a full time photographer who doesn’t want to do portraits or weddings is proving to be much harder than I thought.
Today’s photos are from another trip I took with some friends back in early 2013. We went to Barwon Heads in the evening and then Point Lonsdale early the next morning, I thought I would show the photos again. I have been back a few times since then, and no doubt will go back quite a few more times in the near future.
