2010 has been the first year in the life of Sillick Photography – its certainly been an interesting one and I’ve learnt a lot – both good and bad about running a business.
Whilst the phone hasn’t exactly been ringing on a daily basis with enquiries, bookings have been slowly increasing during the year. I’ve also been fortunate enough to be able to help out my good friend and inspiration/mentor Stuart Cooper on a number of weddings – all of which have been an amazing experience and I am tremendously fortunate to have the opportunity.
We’ve done both our first commercial job (picked up from our first real internet enquiry) and have attended our first wedding fayre – and from that have received our first wedding booking.
2011 is looking to be a good year – photographically we have Claire and Dominic’s wedding waiting for us in July. Before that though there will be lots of training courses so I can offer only the best to my clients and I’m hoping to increase our presence in the local area with some new marketing and hopefully a new look website – look out Hampshire – you have been warned!!
On a more personal level in March we’re looking forward to the patter of tiny feet as Evie is due to receive a little sister to play with – I can’t wait to meet her… it will be good to be able to take some baby photo’s again!! 🙂
I’d like to take the opportunity to thanks all my friends and clients for their support during 2010 – without you this would never have happened. Best wishes to you all for 2011 – I hope you all manage to realise your dreams.
Personal work has been in a little bit of short supply what with everything else – much to my wife’s annoyance, but here are a couple of my favourites of my princess.
