Well it has been a great year in the studio. It started very slowly with a very big learning curve in how to spend lots on advertising only to get no return. Thanks to a friend I tried a new approach in the likes of Facebook and it certainly paid off with bookings coming in fast for the Studio and for Weddings as well.
It is at times like this when just want to keep taking the bookings but a lesson learnt was the amount of extra time needed. A working program is being setup now as for every studio shoot doesn't end when the clients leave. Then it is time spent in front of the Mac editing images to a high standard.
This is the bread and butter as the higher the quality, the more work that comes in from 'Word of Mouth' and also using some images for further advertising.
To sum this last year up, I have completed approximately 140 Studio Shoots, 3 Weddings, and various events and Commissions.
95% of this has been at weekends only.
Here is to 2014 being better.
