ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS

I’m about to graduate photography and video. 

Do you guys have any recommendations on how to start getting your personal work in to publications? 

Check out my site *here*, or my flickr *here* if it helps see what sort of work I make. I’m just feeling very lost.

You probably know that I have a new website now which includes its own blog but I might keep hold of this one here for a while. Consider it more of an online journal rather than a professional update page.

Anonymous said: In your picture on your personal profile are you naked cause you look naked? Either way it isn't important but you're really pretty and you're boyfriend must be really lucky

Haha I’m not but I can see why you’d think that. I didn’t even know I still had that profile photograph though, I like that one! I don’t have a hard copy any more. :(

But thank you very much. I think he knows it even though he forgets sometimes. :)

Hey guys, I know there aren’t many who follow me on here but I’ve just got a new website! Any feedback would be brilliant! :D

I’m currently looking after the house and so this means feeding the animals every morning, day, and night. At 6.30 this morning I woke up and after feeding the goats, chickens, and birds, returned to the house to narrowly miss squashing this little guy with my mums clogs. 
He’d been cornered by the cats who’d brought him to breakfast and saw scrambling to get out. I put him in a bucket and took him to the overgrowth in the back of the garden but he didn’t want to leave! I got a lucky chance to take a few photographs of him - I don’t remember the last time I was this close to a wild frog that wasn’t a mere skeleton.

How does this look? I’m not entirely sure how to go about arranging text. I’ve tried it a million times and I just don’t quite know how to design the back!

Working with thinner fonts now, they look much cleaner and less invasive than the bolder ones. I need to figure out how to put it across several different images now so I’ll give you a look at those too.

I’ve been thinking of business card designs. Moo is probably where I will publish them but their design software doesn’t give you enough freedom. Only photoshop can really do the job. 

I like this as a basic template but now I’ve got to decide on font and weight. What do you think? busine

I’ve only gone and finished university! I couldn’t be happier either. I’m hoping to get a new blog off the ground too with a more professional design. I’m thinking wordpress…. maybe? I’m doing my research today. Anyone have any advice?

Brilliant documentary about iconic photographer William Klein.

The prints that I selected and printed differ from those I initially considered. Although the majority are made up of photographs from the original contact sheet I also printed a couple that I didn’t think I’d use such as the green photo of the sticker on grass. They just break up the collection and prevents monotony.

As you might have read, I’ve already finished printing now but here is a quick look at my contact sheet that I reviewed to decide on prints. I realise some of the edits have a whitewash but to keep consistent I went back into lightroom with .raw files and started from scratch. 

I hope you like them. They’re all A3 apart from another two or three which I included later on and printed as diptychs!

PRINTING TODAY!

I’m getting my work printed on a swanky giclee printer and they’re going to look pretty nice hopefully. It’s been a long project but when this is done I’ll be so relieved! 

I’ve encountered one big problem with my prints already though. DUST on the paper. I’m having to gently blow on all the paper now to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Can’t afford that at £5 a pop x15 at least! And that is just for one module, never mind the other!

Gravel or cable-knit detail? You decide!
