I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year for 2018.
We have had some bitter cold weather up here, and just dealt with a blizzard, which was not even the first snowfall of the season. The situation right now is a good example of why productions slowed down last year. I have reached the stage where I am not going to try to set something up for a video under less than ideal conditions, special circumstances notwithstanding. And while we certainly had nice weather the rest of last summer and into the fall, I was also involved in non-related business projects that made the scheduling of photography difficult.
At this point, I’m sure I am going to wait for the spring, for the snow to melt and warmer temperatures to arrive. It does not bother me if I reduce my schedule to working a few times in the spring and early summer. Over the past thirteen years, these videos have been a lot of fun and I enjoy the collection of titles that has been put together. I’ve met some amazing people along the way and created many good memories.
Having said that, one of my objectives for the new year will be to shoot with a new model. I was recently reviewing the work of one young lady, and will try to see if she is still available in my area. Again, I would like to be able to include something outdoors, but I would not rule out a February event.
The bottom line is that I am not finished producing new videos, not at all. Even if it is not as many in the course of the year, I will still make the most of these opportunities.
Until then, stay tuned!
