I’m glad to be on the back side of the holidays and New Year’s. Don’t get me wrong, I love the celebration, seeing family and friends etc, but being out of any kind of normal routine makes it an adventure. Not that my life has that much routine to begin with, but I came back to my office and desk after 10 days away and it looked like a crime scene. November and December were very busy and I uncharacteristically left for a family vacation with some work still on my desk.
The good thing is when I get the opportunity to step away from my work for a few days it allows my mind to wander, I can get some inspiration from new places, laugh a lot and seek out new ideas and thoughts to move forward with.
I’m an optimist at heart, especially about business and the photography business as a whole. Photography is being used more now that ever before and there are countless outlets that need a refined and experienced vision to convey the essence of a brand, tell a compelling story or make that one image that makes you feel something.
I’m also a believer that positive thoughts create positive forward moving energy, which is undeniably the best way to start a new year.
