Haven't done a journal for some time mainly due to commitments to work and training taking most of my time. my life is moving into a new faze as the saying goes ! I went to Pula, Croatia in august of this year for a holiday with my beautiful girlfriend Vikki and we took our 4 children with us, her boys AJ and Chris and my son and daughter, Taran and Erin. It was a great holiday the best I've ever had to be honest and the best thing about it was I took a engagement ring with me and caught Vikki completely of guard and ask her to marry me, so now we are getting married
I have landed probably the best job in the world ! I start teaching photography for an activity holiday company, here in the UK next year The company is called HF Holidays, check them out www.hfholidays.co.uk/ I was given 4 holidays of various lengths, I had to plan what I'm teaching as there will be different levels of students and themes to each holiday, where we will go and transport. The company owns 17 houses around the Uk but when I say houses we're talking stately houses, very fine indeed ! I get expenses for getting to the location, free full board accommodation in great locations and they pay me to boot, happy days ! I start in May 2014 with with 4 nights holiday "Developing a Photographic Eye" on the east coast of England at Whitby where Bram Stoker set his legendary Novel Dracula. then in Jun i go to the Black Hills of central Wales at Brecon for a "Introduction to Digital Photography" again for 4 nights. My longest holiday I will be leading is 7 nights in September and that's "Landscape Photography" in the Snowdonia National Park in Wales at Beddgelert a beautiful part of the UK. My last holiday is in the Cotswolds at Bourton-on-the-Water again iconic British landscape country and i will be here for 3 nights, leading a "Digital Photography". If all goes well I could be leading holidays with the company Internationally the following year, I feel very lucky and privileged to be teaching the techniques I've picked up over many years of photography and to visit some of the most beautiful parts of Britain being paid for the pleasure !
one last thing, I used to thank everyone individually for favoring my work but I'm getting that many they just mount up to quick these day. so to everyone of you that's Faved my work, I say a really big thank you and sorry I can no longer say it personally.
right on with the serious stuff FEATURE TIME !!
