There is a theory that in order to be successful you need to keep going no matter what obstacles you face. This week I got the opportunity to put that to the test. 🙂
Landscape photography can be difficult during the summer can’t it? Well if the last few weeks is anything to go by I am starting to think that that is nonsense!
One of the things that I love the most about my job is being able to share my passion for the Lake District and landscape photography with other people. This week I got to do just that in what has to be one of the most fulfilling few days that I have had since going full-time.
After a very busy few days I am able to take a well earned break. But you can’t just stop being a photographer can you!
After the challenges of lockdown it finally feels as though things are starting to slowly return to normal. With back to back 1-2-1s it feels good to be back out in the field sharing my passion for both photography and the Lake District.
Things are really starting to pick up for my business after a tough time during lockdown. In recent weeks I have had quite a few bookings for 1-2-1s and it feels good. Not even the typically inclement Cumbrian summer can put a dampener on things!
I don’t normally shoot throughout the summer. But this year, because of lockdown, I have decided to carry on right through till autumn. And I am having a fantastic time. Mostly.
Following the government’s announcement that hotels, B&Bs and campsites can reopen from the 4th of July this week I have been very busy planning my workshops for the autumn. I also gave my first ever camera club talk. Perhaps things are starting to look up.
The summer is a difficult time for landscape photographers. The early starts and late finishes. The clear skies, harsh light and lack of colour contrast. Normally I would take a break around this time of year. But having lost so much time to the coronavirus pandemic I an determined to make the most of it this year.
