Wow! Please tell me where did the Summer go? It seems only yesterday that I was writing about Spring turning into Summer! And what a Summer it was... Like no other weather wise with records for temperatures and no rain etc being broken time after time. Personal branding projects, portraits and commissions all make for a busy life. One overriding thing that I shall remember from this summer, apart from the temperatures is that of the stunning desaturated colours of the landscape and buildings, given from the lack of rain and the high temperatures... amazing.
Then cometh August, my month to go absolutely know where and a time to seize the opportunity to refresh, recharge, recalibrate. Be slow. Simply breathe. I take this time to send my digital kit to be recalibrated and cleaned too. Whilst it's away, I focus on my Fine Art work on film. Working with my old medium format cameras is my way to explore creative possibilities that have been sketched out during the year.
This is the month that allows me to focus, to plot and plan for the coming year or season too... making and building on my texture library, Portrait Days, new workshops - both on and off line, planning Mentoring sessions, location scouting, sorting new photographs for my shop, website updates and more...
For the future, I am releasing dates for my Autumn Portrait Days and workshops very soon. If you are interested in 1:1 mentoring or setting up a bespoke workshop or portrait please contact me.
Autumn is one of my favourite seasons, with those incredible colours when leaves turn golden browns, oranges and reds. The smell of the bonfires and smoke in an evening from open fires and wood burning stoves that the cooler and darker evenings bring and that gorgeous, mellow light. The time to gather berries and more from our abundant hedgerows.
My Portrait Days are always open to businesses too offered during Autumn proper. Maybe your business hat and business branding shows traits of Autumn - may be organic, focussed, passionate and compassionate. You may be at home in the outdoors in your downtime or your business may be outdoors, in part or wholly and so tend to be very environmentally aware and have a strong connection with nature.
Whether you are wanting some portraits of your little ones in the Autumn light or you need business portraits of you and some of your team, then do get in touch, I would love to chat with you…
If you are a new business just starting out or an established business needing a brand update, or needing some of my content creation images, then I would love to work with you. Simply get in touch to chat further.
