Deadlines Friend or Foe?

I have been thinking alot about deadlines recently….everyone knows that a designer’s life is ruled by timescales and deadlines but it struck me that not everyone is as used to working within a timeframe in the same way as I am. So I wondered what advice I could give to help others reach their targets. [..]

Assume a Positive Marketing Stance

We are pretty fickel beings when it comes to making our purchasing decisions and we are influenced all the time by a monumental amount of marketing ploys. We all like to think that we can rise above the hype and remain impartial, but let’s get real, if we were immune then there would be no product placement, no catchy theme tunes and Cheryl Cole wouldn’t be endorsing beauty products!

My Summer of Love

It’s fair to say that this summer has been filled with love…in a professional sense anyway!

Living in a relatively small community as a photographer, it’s inevitable that you will be asked to shoot as wedding for someone you know.
