Looking Forward.

My photography coaching is really getting off the ground and I have already been privileged to help many new clients this year.  Next year I plan on really playing big!

At the moment I am finalising the workshops and tours calendar for the new year which, as well as the most popular photography tours will include lots of new trips too.  I plan on running a few short and tempting taster weekends around Ireland too but places are limited so keep watching the blog and my website too for further details!

Speaking of the website I am finalising a new design too which will roll out this side of Christmas.  I plan on a site with less clutter, a full e-commerce facility making it easier for you to book on to trips and purchase my fine art prints and lots of new beneficial features and value laden content.

As I am writing this I can hear the sound of workmen putting the final touches to my new studio.  I want it to be a place where people can come along to work on their post processing and digital workflow.  I picture it this way:  You come along for the day or for the weekend and we set out early in the morning to catch the best dawn light at one of the many amazing coastal locations here.   We get some great shots and then we head off somewhere for a delicious breakfast – smell that coffee now!  Then we come back to the studio to download and process the images.  I will help you to streamline and speed up your digital processes so that you go from capture to print in quick and easy steps.  At the end of the weekend you go home with your favourite print ready for framing and hanging on your own wall!  The studio will be finished next week and I cant wait to move in!  There will be spaces for 4 people to work on 4 large iMac computers!

Here are some pictures of the studio at the moment:

HOW I GOT HERE Of course, I wasn’t always a full time photographer. I spent a lot of time in the corporate world. I had a job which paid well, but just didn’t excite me. I remember the day when I had had enough. Enough of selling myself short, enough of dreaming too small, enough of doing what others expected of me. I had put away my dreams and told myself I would get back to them later, but somehow there always seemed to be something else that had to get done first. A friend of mine had recommended I take the NLP Business Practitioners course, and although I was really busy, I decided to do it. During that time, I began to imagine the different paths my life could take from here. While I had a hazy picture of what this other life might look like, I had a clear picture of where my current life was going if I didn’t change. It was a scary moment, a bit like standing on the edge of a cliff deciding whether to jump into the great unknown or stay on the cliff, safe but trapped. I jumped. The transition to the life I wanted was challenging The transition to the life I wanted was challenging but I would never go back. After that day I resolved to do what I love, to follow my bliss.  Picking up a camera after several years away, I found that many things had changed, the digital age had arrived. In the intervening years, I was too busy to pay any attention to my photography, and occasionally when I took something I really liked, I would think “how do some photographs seem so captivating and others leave me completely cold?” I knew this is what I was meant to do Somehow though, I knew this is what I was meant to do. I dedicated myself to learning everything I could about being a photographer. I took many, many courses and I read every book I could get my hands on, I still do. Since then, I have dedicated myself to helping other creative photographers achieve the results they want. And what a journey it has been. Last year I qualified as a coach. My main area of interest is creativity and helping others to express their vision. WHAT I BELIEVE Along the way, I’ve learnt that there are no rules. Experiment, explore, play. My advice is to make your art from your heart, not for the praise or the money.  Lighten up. It’s important to take your photography seriously, but it's a mistake to take yourself too seriously. Finally, you get what you want when you never, ever give up so enjoy every minute of it and just do it!
