More Focus Required

October 22, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Firstly, I have to apologies, I've sort of neglected this site for a while, and to be honest, the reason for it is a new 'day job'. I've tried so hard to maintain a full time photographer status, but in this day and age it's a real struggle to compete with emerging photographers who have little or no experience and undercut your efforts at every turn. So needs must and all that, I took a job for a London based recruitment technology firm. The funny thing is, I actually love working there. It fits in with all of my creativity needs, in that I'm making more videos, editing client's own videos, learning even more about various rendering techniques as well has helping clients understand the need to stage their own video creations for the best results.

However, this has meant my own photography has taken a bit of a back seat. Though I have found a new outlet to get images into the syndicated agencies, and that's been by using my iPhone 6s and uploading to mobile specific content sites. I even managed to get a news story syndicated, which was nice. I'm there snapping away with my mobile phone and instantly pushing them to a news site, while my more well equipped fellow photographers are hours away from getting their images to a computer and uploaded.

So what does this mean?

Well, I guess it sort of means I'm paring down on the amount of equipment I own for one, selling some hardware that I've finally admitted to myself I didn't really need in the first place (a lot like my previous post about buying junk), keeping it to a core set of equipment. That being:

  • HD Camcorder with a Wide Angle Lens
  • Various Sports Cam of the GoPro kind
  • 2 Still Cameras (Canon 5D's) because of the weddings
  • DJI Mavic Pro - Once it arrives

Everything else is going, and I'll link to my eBay page so you can keep an eye on what I'm getting rid of and get yourself a bargain. There's even a set of four Merc Alloy Wheels if you're interested.

I'm also back to owning an iPad again, not for any other reason but to write to you lovely peeps via this blog, as again, I've been guilty of not posting too much on here, which is a major no-no in the blogging world. No fresh content means no new readers or reader apathy.

So my question to you is, what would you like to read more about? Is there anything you'd like to learn about that I could teach you? If you have any comments or suggestions, please put them below, happy to offer advice and help where I can.
