Things have been both a bit sporadic and quiet on LFB as of late. And while I do admit that this is partially due to the fact that I am just enjoying my summer and throwing myself into new hobbies (see number 6 below), I am also doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work, going to events, and working on my photography business. Still, I thought a bit of an update was in order (as told by my iphone camera…):
test shot from the new studio!
1: Building up my studio
I am really trying to grow my photography business – which, after all, is one of the reasons I moved flats. I have finally started to get the studio space into some kind of working order, which was definitely needed so that I can finally move forward with current client work and start focusing on getting more people in the studio and behind my lens. I also re-vamped my photography site (for the millionth time I know…) so definitely have a look!
2: Shooting weddings
Last week, I had the pleasure of shooting a wedding for two lovely clients. Weddings are hard work – you are there shooting non-stop for at least 12 hours, which although extremely rewarding, is very physically and mentally draining. Not to mention that it’s really after the wedding that you then need to sit down for the next month+ and work on editing those circa 2,000 photos you shot…
3: Getting the office together & growing LFB
I have also been working on cleaning the office up and creating a real co-working space. I am very passionate about really getting LFB to the place I want it to be and that means bringing more people on board and really getting down to business.
4: Turning a house into a home
I’ve also been working on turning my flat into the kind of liveable oasis I can be proud of. I am not entirely there yet, but things are slowly coming together and I can’t wait to share the end result with you guys (but don’t worry, I will definitely be updating with you guys on the progress being made in the meantime as well).
5: Getting older & hanging out
Celebrated my 29th last week. To be honest, although I keep on getting older (funny how that works, huh?) I’m the happiest I have ever been with both myself and my life at this very moment. Loved spending the evening with some of the best people on this planet and have loved spending time with all of these amazing individuals all summer really.
6: Picking up new hobbies
Funny story. I’ve picked up skateboarding. Now, don’t expect me to do anything amazing yet. I’ve basically managed to push around without falling and have gone down a few ramps, but gravity is really to thank for that. Still, it’s extremely exhilarating to finally live out a dream 13 year old me would be proud of. Not looking to become the best, but the thing about skateboarding that is so amazing is that it is a constant test of fear and a constant feeling of growth.
So that’s about it from my end. I’m hoping that things will go back to normal around here, as it really is a huge dream of mine to keep LFB a daily blog, but at the moment with so many things going on at the moment, I cannot make any promises. Hope you guys will bare with me until then.
