It’s that time of year again, when I gather up my “BlackBox” and total everything up. As I’ve mentioned in my recent series of posts (here, here, here and here), it’s been a funny year. My highest earning month ever in March, and one of the quietest months in a decade in October. The total number of shots is much lower than recent years, yet I’m happy to say I have been charging more generally, so this is no bad thing, and has definitely given me more time to work on ideas and development.
I’ve still got lots I want to work on, as is always the case, but one big plus from this year has been the higher percentage of my work that’s made it into the portfolio. Part of the reason for this is the new workflow I’ve been developing since I worked with Ebonie Allard in the summer. Although this workflow is mainly concerned with pushing more stuff through to social media, the simple act of examining each shoot more closely in order to do this encourages me to polish more stuff for the portfolio.
It being the end of the year, I shall now make the usual promises about lots more to come in 2016, bid farewell to 2015, and wish anyone reading a Happy New Year!
