A WEEK AS A PHOTOGRAPHER PT11
It was another busy week at the studio. It is looking like I will be opening a second studio in March that will be three times the size of my current space. This has been taking up a lot of my free time in the evenings. I have also met two new clients who want to commission me to take portraits of staff at two large UK companies in a style I see fit. This is pretty much my dream booking. So, this has been a pretty good week.
Monday started at about 7:30am at the studio. Virgin Media were in to add some new lines to the building. I caught up on admin in the morning and then I had a short editorial photoshoot in the afternoon. I spent the evening at a friends house discussing options for my new studio space.
I went to Hair@1RD on Rutland street to get a trim in the morning. I have been going to Robin for a few years and it’s always a highlight of any week. After this I cracked on with some editing before heading off to Leicester Lo Fi to develop and scan some images of Weikie from last weeks photoshoot. A small group of us then went on to the Western to discuss some further build plans for the new studio.
I had a shoot at the Lansdowne in the morning with Mel and Jules from Orange Tree Weddings. After the shoot I filmed the third video in my Free Online Photography Course (You can sign up by clicking on the link). The last sitting of the day was with Gemma from Mocha Marketing.
I had a portrait sitting with Carriages Events in the morning for their website. We did the photoshoot at The Cosy Club. After this I headed over to The Kitchen at The Cookie to try their new menu. It was pretty epic. I spent the rest of the afternoon doing headshot sittings in the studio before prepping the area for Fridays shoot.
I had portrait sittings with 20 ESL gamers for a tournament that they were playing on Saturday. These are then used as on screen graphics during the broadcast.
Saturday was the main event with ESL. The client looked after me really well and everything ran really smoothly. It was the first event in their new studio so everyone was really hyped up. We had a small social media desk that we did rushes from for twitter and Facebook, the rest of the images were delivered over night via ftp to the client.
Sunday will have to remain a bit of a secret for now…
