One of my favourite times of the year is upon us and with the cooling of temperatures, the layering of scarves and blankets, the house being filled with aromas of warming soups and stews - the change of season announces clearly it is here, to be welcomed like an old friend. Which you can still do in autumn, because it isn't until winter when you grow weary of the chill and the dark. It's in the depths of winter that you feel that friend has overstayed his welcome just a bit as you hanker for longer days and summer sun again.
The end of February saw my return to full time teaching for another year - what may be one of the last as I make plans for developing Look See, trying to become that little bit braver to make the leap into photography as my main working activity and income.
The Easter break will bring an exciting new photography opportunity for me - I'll be the second photographer for a former student's garden wedding. It will be my first foray into the whole wedding caper, something I have always said I would wait to do until I wasn't teaching full time. But this one is special and small. It's one thing to see your students making their way in our wild world, but altogether another to be asked to capture something so lovely as they reach adulthood. Seriously, kids grow up so fast. It's like lightning.
I still have spots available for photo shoots in the Term 2 school holidays, so if you'd like me to photograph your family, event or business contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy change of season!
