Christmas bookings and life in general.

December started out with one booking and was swiftly filled by a wedding film in Nottingham and a very last minute stills shoot in Leicester. Elsewhere I have been busy doing work in the studio for some of my commercial clients and more importantly working on putting together my new show reel.

Since I also do a high level of commercial work I feel it’s quite important my wedding and portrait clients to be aware of this aspect. I don’t do as many wedding shoots as some photographers in the business. This for me means that I get a mix of work, which I find quite important as it keeps me interested in what I do. Adding into this the dimension of wedding films further increases the mix and that all helps. The reason I think its healthy for my wedding and portrait clients means that they get someone who is fresh and interested in them and they get a more personal touch as they will not be one of the many.

The show reel took about half a day to film and was done at my commercial photography studio space just outside Derby. Very kindly my friend Dennis Stanley helped shoot it alongside my father Keith Pollard. After a few editing tweaks the finished product looks very strong and professional gives you a better view into my personality…

Updates and a new year full of hope.

We have been busy this last few days working on a reasonably large quote for a Museum job in Derbyshire at the Derby, Belper and Buxton Museums. Thankfully we can now take a breath for a few days and concentrate some more time in updating the images on the web site and maybe add a little more content to the blog page..

The Christmas celebrations have slowed down enquiries for weddings on  www.benjaminthephotographer.co.uk web site, it does however seem that now the celebrations have passed this area is waking up again; notably with three enquiries coming in just yesterday alone.

The next thing on the agenda will be to start developing the cinematography site as having completed another wedding film this weekend there will be a good portfolio of these to view. In addition we have a exciting project documenting another photogrpher doing a fashion shoot at Shottle Hall due in Early February.

Some of our long standing commercial clients are starting to wake up with new year budgets opening, and already the diary is starting to fill.

So far so good. Heres to 2013!
