2010

2010 has been a great year.
Though, because I am at uni & term is September - May, it doesn't particularly feel like the end of a year for me. I'm currently half way through my last year at uni and only when June comes will I have time to start anew.

However I wanted to take this chance to reflect upon this year, ready for the start of 2011.
It has been good, with ups & downs like any year, and photography wise I feel my work has developed alot.

I had a term at uni Jan - May, for which I was doing a book project and fashion shoots on the side. Then it was the summer holiday, this year I decided to leave my part time cafe job and do my photography. Luckily this went well, doing weddings and client shoots I made the same amount of money - a great start for my freelance career.
Then the start of my final year at uni! This term has been a challange but great to focus on what I want to do.

In this blog post I want to show how my work has developed over this past year, I've gone through my flickr photos and here is a quick round up of 1 from each shoot -

Exhibition at uni (end of project)
I want to say a big thankyou to everyone that I have worked with / helped me in any way over the past year.
I couldn't have done all these shoots without the amazing people involved.
As for 2011, I have 1 more term to go at uni.. This will be great as I am just focusing on 1 big project - which I will be exhibiting in Cambridge and London. And then after uni finishes? who knows, lets see how it goes...
