I am so excited to be able to share some of the Christmas images I took in my pop up studio in the latter stages of 2017 and be able to share with you some exciting things happening in my world in 2018.
In November, Marcus (my very talented brother) and I undertook our first wedding as Devon Rose Photography. This is my brother's wedding photography business and I come in as his second photographer. The blog from the day can be found on the blog page of our website www.devonrosewedding.co.uk by clicking here.
From October onwards, things got busy when I opened up my pop up studio. I had some lovely guests including a rather lovely Cocker Spaniel called Jasper. It was nice to know my work was being given as gifts and that would be a lasting memory to hang on someone's wall or upon a mantlepiece for all to see.
I also made time to get back to my love of the National Trust and took advantage of the amazing display put on of lights at Saltram Park. There Enchanted Garden was a Christmas delight and the hot chocolate was a little bit special too!
So here we go, into 2018 with a diary that's filling quickly. I don't make resolutions,; I make lists and this year I am looking forward to completing some of the plans I have. This includes linking an online gallery of my aviation work to this website so i can sell downloads and prints direct through my ShootProof account, using Loxley Colour as my professional printing partner. We have weddings booked throughout the year, with limited dates in May and November left. I have something quite special planned in May which involves some historic connection and I plan to keep evolving and developing as a photographic artist so if you have any projects, I'll happily discuss your requirements.
January sees me taking on a Christening and Marcus and I are donating our time to cover an event for Combat Stress, a very important charity that helps former servicemen and women deal with issues like trauma, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. More information on their work can be found here.
So there is a lot to be looking forward to. Thank you for all your continue support over this last year.
Until Next Time, Smile for the Camera
