With 2015 coming to an end I've started to reflect on what a year it has been! It doesn't seem 5 minutes ago that I wrote a blog post titled 2014 - Year in Review but when I look back on 2015, its been a very productive - and busy - year!
Aside from working with some great couples on their Engagement and Weddings, I also expanded into photographing Senior Portraits. This was a new area for me and I look forward to taking this forward in 2016!
I've been fortunate to have my images featured in several UK Wedding Blogs over the past 12 months including,
- The Wedding Community Blog
- So You're Getting Married
- Secret Wedding Blog
- Your Perfect Wedding Photographer
I completed the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International Certification (WPPIC) towards the latter half of the year. This certification program is offered by the WPPI, one of the largest wedding and portrait photography associations, in conjunction with the New York Institute of Photography (NYIP). The certification consisted of a proctored exam testing my knowledge and understanding of key photographic techniques and wedding photography as a genre, followed by a portfolio review. The certification was only launched as the start of 2015 so I am one of the first to be awarded it!
In addition of my wedding and photography work, I made time to continue with my personal photography - including a bucket-list trip to Pripyat - and have worked with some great people including John Sansom and Roxanne. I even found time to start making Behind the Scenes videos using my GoPro!
After such a great 2015, whats in store for the future? Here is the big news, I'm moving to Canada in early 2016! After 8 years in London it's time to try somewhere new. I've even registered a new URL for my photography business - tillsonburg.photography
All that remains is to say thank you to all the couples who have made 2015 such a fun and enjoyable year for me, and I leave you with some of my favourites images from 2015:
