You Made How Many Photographs Last Year?!

While in the mindset of getting my photography off the ground a little higher this year I’ve been thinking of ways to let you all know about what I’m shooting.

I’m making photographs all the time but realized you all never know about them because I only post a few here and there. A lot of my photographs I can’t share as they are to be used in publications…well, I can’t share them until they have been released to the public by the person or business contracting them.

So, what I decided I’d do is start taking a photo on my phone of what I’m shooting. That way it’s not the same image that’s been contracted (lower res/not the same composition) but it will allow you to see what I’m up to. It’s also a great way for me to help promote whatever it is the business/person has hired me to shoot whether it be the business itself, a new dish, new product etc. See win/win.

Looking back over photographs I made last year alone – I shot over 8200 photographs for my day job. Yep, just my day job. That number isn’t including any of my personal stuff – family, friends, other clients, nature etc. Crazy huh?! I know this is probably a drop in the hat to someone who does photography full-time but I’m surprised by my number.

So with all that in mind here are a couple of shots from late last week.

The cookie photo is due to accompany an upcoming column from author Annie Mahle in the Portland Press Herald.

The upcycled couch fabric shots I made ran in a post on At  Home & At Sea (Upcycled and Renewed – Second Life for the Couch).
