Over the past few months my wife and I have been contemplating some business changes, and refocusing our commercial activities to better meet our goals. At this point in my career it is an interesting exercise to review my priorities, and identify where my interests and passions for the future are leaning.

Those of you who are very familiar with this photography blog may have noticed that two banner headings have been removed. These include Photo/Video Services and Business Posters.
The removal of these website sections signal that we will no longer be actively pursuing new clients for these parts of our business. We will continue to support the needs of our existing clients on at least an interim basis.
Our plan is to continue with our photography blog and the creation of new eBooks as we continue to move forward along our creative path.
We have been considering shifting more of our energies into some other areas of interest. These may include doing more presentations to camera clubs and photography coaching… once COVID-19 risks have fully abated.
We also have been discussing the creation of other types of commercial online content that would not appear here on our photography blog.
Producing and selling photographic prints through a very select number of retail outlets has also been bandied about. Since these potential business initiatives have not been fully fleshed out it would be premature for us to discuss them in any detail at the present time.
We deeply appreciate all of the support that we have received from our readers since we launched this photography blog in January 2015. It is sometimes hard to believe that we started this website over six and a half years ago… and have written/published well over 1,000 articles here. As our interests and business continue to evolve we will keep all of you informed.
One thing is certain. To grow each of us must be prepared to let go of some things from the past. This allows us to make room for other priorities, opportunities… and to pursue our passions for the future.
Photographs were captured handheld using camera gear as noted in the EXIF data. Images were produced from RAW files using my standard process. This is the 1,046th article published on this website since its original inception.
