Annual Review Part IV

Getting back to the office at the beginning of October again, my diary shows a long list of jobs, mainly to do with the website so things must be progressing at this point. About time! Yep, the whole of the month was filled up with the website in the main, plus processing images from France for Yachting World. I had two workshops for autumn colours in the New Forest for which we had great light which always helps, so they went well. These are well tried and tested now but I always tryto make each one slightly different with a different take on things and of course, the actual conditions alter aspects around.

November was supposed to have started with an autumn colours based novice workshop, but atrocious weather postponed that one. Venice was the next stop for the workshop there. It really is such a fabulous place for photography. Dawn shoots and low light are de rigueur here and adding in the market and street photography makes this workshop extremely popular with 7 out of the 10 photographers having attended the same workshop the year before!

A week after returning and I saw four of them again at a Critique and Lightroom tuition day I was running. Could it be my natural aroma and charm maybe?
The following weekend in the New Forest was the venue for my final Novice workshop of the year back north of Bolderwood. We had great light which meant also that we were longer out than we should have been but it was worth it according to the post event questionnaires.

Now were back where we started, except that finally the website is now live and also delivering orders. There are still a few minor glitches to sort out but it’s there, at last.


2015 beckons and the plan is being made. France is on the list together with Tuscany of course, and so is Scotland. It’ll be a good year for sailing but at the end of the day, what we need is great light because #ItsAllAboutTheLight.

Have a great Christmas and happy New Year.
