How are you with finding inspiration? I find it in other artists work, music and pretty much anything positive around me. Everyone has their own devices in discovering what works for them. I am inspired by photographers who travel and photograph the beauties of the world. From the amazing glaciers to the less fortunate faces of the poor. I haven’t been able to travel overseas due to illness and so for the past 2 years 6 months I have been seeing the world via the eyes of other photographers. And it’s been just as satisfying.
I have made great connections with other photographers via social media and what a blessing it has been building relationships without even meeting them in person, but through their images, I feel as if I know a whole lot about each of them. I have yet to meet up with a few photographers in my own hometown Gold Coast and Brisbane. I’m always being invited to group catch ups for morning or evening photo shoots, but something always pops up. I will make it to a meet and greet soon.
However, I have been busy with other photography work, retouching and editing for overseas companies, that at least keeps my editing skills in tact and up to date. I have also committed myself to keeping my website updated, which I did neglect for about 6 months. I have noticed most photography websites concentrate on solely sharing their own work but I have steered away from that and have begun sharing other photographers works. Adding either their personal websites or their URL’s via their accounts on Bēhance or Fine Art America. I know! You’re probably asking “Why are you promoting other photographers?”.
It’s simple really, I want to share the beauty and talent of others to anyone and everyone who visits my website. Being kind, giving and sharing is my personality, ask anyone who knows me. It makes me happy to not only help myself but others. Caring is Sharing! shouldn’t only be a saying slash quote, but an action! We need to not only say and speak but to follow through with what we do about it. Actions speak louder than words. So lately I have been jotting down other lists of pages I want to add to my website, if you have any suggestions, I’d be happy to take note of your suggestions in the comments section.
I have also built and designed my own website from scratch, so I’m really chuffed with myself. I had used altogether 3 hosting sites but have now found a great one that I have been with for a year now and have had no problems with and it’s affordable. It’s been a while since I last posted here on my Blog but I finally remembered my username and password hahaha!!… So many accounts, usernames and passwords can get very confusing. So before I sign off I would love for you to visit my website. Please share and like it on your other social media sites and keep in mind that you won’t be only helping me but other photographers on my page as well.
God bless xox
