Pressing Onward

posted on 6th of march, 2008

Well, it's been a hard journey the last week or so. Not only was our production crippled trying to work out the trojan virus, but our sales stopped across the board. Maybe it's just this time of the month, I noticed last month a decrease around the first week as well.

For now, we've decided to indeed press forward and keep going. And why not? We have a great new camera now, Olympus E-510, and are enjoying the wonderful images it produces! I've also been poking around with fractals, which will help round out our portfolio. And we have a few models coming in to shoot this weekend. So things seem to be rolling along.

We are also getting over injuries. The weather has been terrible here, and with back injuries and so forth, we've been slow moving. And he broke 2 ribs falling while taking a shot. Broke the ribs, but saved the camera. He's a good man. :D

Our 10mpx pictures are starting to pop up now. Hopefully that will also bring an increase in sales. We can't wait to see what next week will bring!!

Sorry to hear about the fall, but of course the important thing is he saved the camera! ;) I fell twice while touring Italy in November, and both times managed to save the camera from harm. Also sorry to hear about virus. That really makes things difficult.

Having only had 2 sales myself, I have no perspective at all on volume. But things will get better! Keep pressing on. Probably your model shoot this weekend will be excellent!

About me

I have been an artist as long as I can remember, drawing, sketching, and painting. When I was in high school, my father purchased a 35mm camera. He did not know how to use it, so when I came home, he asked if the school had a photography class I could take, so I could teach him to shoot. It did have a class, I took it, and I found a whole new world I could create in. I prefer a controlled studio to the outdoors. Fine Art Nude work is a particular passion, and I hope to eventually publish a “coffee table” book of my work. I have shot a little bit of just about everything in my 20+ year... [Read more]
