Official Announcement – Indefinite Hiatus
Things have been very quiet and low-key. The decision to announce my indefinite hiatus has been weighing on my heart for a long time. I have slowly been referring out business to great and talented friends of mine for quite awhile.
Photography has and will continue to be my passion. I’m putting the breaks on accepting new clientele for the time being so that I can focus on creating art that is meaningful to me and meaningful to the people who view them. In the few online photographic communities of which I am a member, I have shared the themes of the projects I am going to be working on and have made a few under-the-radar calls for participation. I am really excited about this new venture as it has reignited my zest for this field. I really, really want to jump the gun and share images as they are completed but I know that it will be better, in the long run, to keep things under wraps and release everything as a solid collection when the time is right.
In addition to this decision, for the last few months, I have been working on wrapping up the development of my website and have been focusing on rebranding strategies. My re-branding process will be to promote my other strengths in business development and online marketing. I’ve already acquired a few “clients” as a test run for this new venture and things are looking great!
From here on out, I will be posting bits of information about various online marketing tips and techniques to help other photographers who are starting out. I think it is only appropriate as I will have a little bit more free time. Over the years, so many good people have taken the time to encourage me and nurture my small business by giving their advice and sharing their knowledge. I am a believer in sharing knowledge and helping others to build themselves from the “bootstraps” on up.
I will also continue to share other artistic projects and photographs that aren’t related to my big, “super secret” project–I am a photographer, after all.
