I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog and Facebook recently but this is not through sitting around. Admittedly, things have been a little slow with local clubs recently and I’m running into the issue of cameras being banned from clubs more and more now. It seems to be a modern hurdle to get over as more and more club owners take child protection and other threats more and more seriously.
Don;t get me wrong, this is a good thing and it’s one of the reasons why I set up M4Photo. I agree with uncontrolled cameras and video being an issue. People are all too ready to take images of everything and everyone and plaster them all over social media and this does have ramifications that people don’t care to think about.
So, for 2017 my goal will be to try to work closer with clubs to enable them to make some extra funds and for me to create some invaluable memories for their members and families. It’ll be an uphill battle, but one that I believe is worth the fight.
In the meantime, I was really pleased to recently write a commission cheque from the sales of photographs from a recent ‘very successful’ photoshoot. Better still I was pleased to hear that the £58.65 cheque will be finding it’s way to one of the amazing cancer charities. It is great to know that, along with creating some amazing memories for people, M4Photo is now also able to help clubs with their charity fund raising.
For now though, I’m working on the challenge of getting some location photographs for a Lettings Agency website that I am working on and then I’ll be gearing up for the Eclipse Annual Show, which is becoming one of the highlights of my year.
