wedding and portrait photographerThe new year is upon us and with it goals and aspirations of the future. For me one of my goals was created from a challenge. I subscribe to a web blogging site that set the challenge for its bloggers to pick a topic and blog about it for 365 days. Well the first challenge is I don’t consider myself a blogger. I am a photographer! And if truth be told I hate blogging. My guess is the reason I don’t like it is because I am not very good at it. I just see the world in pictures, through the cameras eye not the written word. So what better way to get better at it than to do it every day. I just hope it doesn’t become a FRIGHTFULLY dull blog. I will try to make sure I include some pictures just in case!  And to your good fortune some of my other VERY talented photographers will be blogging too!  So be on the look out for some of their amazing work.

We are coming upon a photographers downtime of the year, at least for those of us in the wedding and portrait side of photography. Most people want to get married the spring, summer or fall and even close to Christmas but January and February are really pretty slow. It is the same with portrait photography. The Christmas cards have been sent, the grass isn’t green and none of us are sporting that fabulous tan we had in the summer. So what DOES a photographer do during those down months. Well we might have an occasional wedding or two , definitely albums to design, and babies come at their own time regardless of how convenient or inconvenient it may be for us. But mostly I spend my time on marking, TAXES (HATE IT!) and going to conventions etc. Again I hope this blog doesn’t become frightfully dull from it’s onset.

So Happy New Year to you all and look for a lot more blogging from this wedding and portrait photographer!!
