A number of Artists from Woodend Mill Group visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park yesterday – in particular to see the work of David Nash. It was a beautiful day but extremely cold – but the interesting work took minds off frozen extremities.
In the last few weeks I have been rushed off my feet with Portrait session orders, album orders and sessions.I expected the snow to cause problems with my last wedding of the year but fortunately for the couple there was a thaw before the next storm, and the only winter wonderland was found inside the reception room, with a beautiful blue and white theme – and it was warm!All family and couple photographs were taken indoors with the aid of a wireless flash set-up. We’ve also helped to celebrate a 7th birthday at the studio with another sucessful Magazine Shoot Party. A make-over and photographs were much enjoyed by the girls who were already on a high with the imminent arrival of Christmas.
Like most others in the country we’ve gone under about a foot of snow. It’s beautiful but hard work getting anywhere – and I’d love to get the camera out but there just doesn’t seem to be time. Spent most of the week processing portrait shoots from the weekend and working with the other Woodend Artists to get the room ready for the Christmas Social on Friday at the Mill.
Portrait Sessions in the studio have been really busy this year.Any one interested in booking a session please contact Jude asap to secure an appointment.
I attended the 3rd Marketing seminar last night at Dukinfield town hall. We investigated email marketing and ‘played’ with a piece of email software. Seems like a useful piece of equipment. It seems a time consuming way of marketing but interesting non the less.
I’ve just finished putting together two lovely albums. Now just the slideshows to be put together and ready for my clients to pick up. I believe that is less than a 2 month turn around since the couples have made their decisions on their photographs!
Yesterday I spoke to 2 lots of 80 14yr old children at the Longendale Community College about my business and how I had started it up and how it has grown.It was an interesting experience, as I expected only to be speaking to one group, but where there’s a will there’s a way! The children seemed reasonably interested in my presentation asking quite a few very relevant and interesting questions. I also had a few children come up to me at the end and commend me on my work – which I really appreciated.I hope I have helped in some way to expand the minds of these 160 children and give them hope for future employment/ business opportunities. I just hope they don’t all decide to become photographers!
