The Shutterbug

As you may be able to tell from the title of my blog, I like to take photos. What you may not know is that I also sell them. In my time I have completed two 365 projects. That’s a project where you take a photo a day for a whole year. No, it’s not easy, but I learned enough doing my first one to want to do it for a second year and make it better. And I made a book from it!

That’s me with my book (duh!) I was so proud of it! It cost, like £100 to make because it’s got one photo per page and it’s huge. But I’ll never do it again so it was worth it!

I also made a photo book which is a little more affordable and easier to hold! I called it Book 1 in the hope that I’ll make some more in the future. It’s looking more likely this year too!

I’m so proud of it! And I’ve sold a few too 😀 I love the idea that people have seen my photos and appreciate them so much they’d want to part with some of their hard-earned cash to own it.

I’ve sold quite a few greetings cards and prints of photos via my Redbubble and Society 6 pages too. They’re amazing sites, who will host, print and post my photos in the buyer’s chosen format. (If you fancy a browse, then go and take a look. The sites are updated every so often with new photos.)

One day my dream is to make a living from doing this. I’d love to travel the country taking photos of far-flung landmarks and places people don’t often see. You so often see photographs of landmarks around the world but not very often the nooks of the UK. That’s something I’d love to change and share my photos with the world. Who knows? Maybe one day.
