A general post about the commercial photography work I do and what is coming up on my photography blog – don’t worry it will make sense honest!

I appear to have been writing lots of themed posts recently. I wanted to get back to the nuts and bolts of my photography work briefly for those of you who are new to my blog.

The areas of commercial photography work I specialise in are

  • Architectural photography
  • Construction photography
  • Industrial photography
  • Interior photography
  • Landscape photography
  • Stock photography
  • Travel photography

A lot of my commercial photography work is never published for commercial reasons, so reading my blog you might think that I am just someone who writes about pictures he has taken and that I am not an actual photographer.

Hence this blog post.

So I am a photographer. I also write about photography, Lightroom and Photoshop on my daily photography blog.

Talking of which, there are going to be some changes coming up in the content of my photography blog.

I am going to write a series of posts all about my construction product photography work.

Then there will be a series of posts all about my interior photography work, and the new set of mages on my interior photography web page.

And then after that I am going to be concentrating for some time on one single photography trip I have recently had the pleasure of going on. And at the same time I am going to enter the world of luminosity masks.

I am going to start this piece of work, with the luminosity masks added in for good measure, mid June. I am going to give myself the luxury of six weeks to write about this on my blog. I am very excited to be doing this and giving myself time to completely process a photography trip.

When I say I am giving myself 6 weeks, I must clarify that this is in addition to day to day work etc.

Once I have done this I need a plan for some of my other trips. I need to spend some proper time on the images I have – I might schedule out one month per trip. Hmmm I sense another schedule coming on here. Yet another one. That is the last thing I want!

I am also trying to update my web pages, having updated the following pages

Home page

Construction Product Photographer

Dorset photographer

Hampshire photographer

Interior photographer (see above)

I am going to try to get my commercial photography pages updated, starting with the images on each web page, followed by the text.

All this while working full time – lots to do then!

What I am going to be writing about on my Photography Blog in February 2017 – a lot of content in a short month!

I need to plan my photography content blog for February. I say this as January did not go according to plan. Nothing disastrous. Just not according to plan.

So this is what my photography blog will contain in February 2017.

Conclusion of my series of pictures of the shoot at Delph Woods in Poole. And hopefully the conclusion of the article I am writing, although I do believe I might have a technical hitch, which will put this back a little bit. But this technical hitch, which I will write about once all the images have been published, is a good learning experience.

Collections are still an issue.

I need to get my Dorset Photographer web page completed and uploaded.

I might make this Dorset Photography Month.

Well why not? I have the pictures of the woods to complete, and the words to accompany my first photography article.

So February is now Dorset Month.

And if that is the case I now declare March to be Hampshire Photography Month – I have lots of similar tasks to do with my Hampshire Photographer work as I do for my Dorset stuff. And I have some great pictures of a National Trust location I have recently discovered.

And also “Clear out my draft folder of blog posts” month – I know – not quite so snappy but still needs doing. There will be a lot of posts in February. Really, lots.

For my Dorset Photographer web page I need to complete the text and 12 images. I am nearly there with the images, and the test is in draft, so this is definitely achievable in February.

And there is something else I am itching to write about – my new camera bag – the Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag.

Finally, I need to go back through my plans for the monthly schedule of content on my photography blog, which I wrote about, and do something with it to make it easier for me to follow. It is one thing coming out with plans, another actually doing them!

And finally finally, I need to produce the following regular features

  • Image of the Week
  • Image of the Month
  • Lightroom Quick Tip
  • Photoshop Quick Tip
  • Photography Terms Explained

That is quite a lot in a short month. Best get on with it!

And then there is the new template of my website.

The final picture in my Top 10 Images of the Year - bright vibrant autumn colours lit by the sunshine in the New Forest

A nice bight sunny picture of the New Forest to finish off my Top 10 Images of 2016.

This picture represents autumn in the New Forest for me, with that low sun warming those golden autumn colours.

This is my last post of 2016, the year I managed to post to my photography blog every day at least once. 

Next year there will be lots of new things to read about, and lots of new images to look at, so its goodbye from me until next year......
