Review of the Year - 2017 Photography Trips and Experiences

01st January 2018
2017 was another busy year for my photography business with my stock imagery sales increasing to magazines, newspapers and online marketing outlets. Alongside this, my physical print sales (Mounted and Framed) grew experiencing a record year for sales to many new customers throughout the UK and worldwide.

My 2018 British Landscapes Calendar sold out on New Years day and received a number of 5 star reviews on the various online marketplaces through which they are available. I had a busy period in November with commercial orders for customised calendars. These customised calendars can be based on a chosen area of the UK and include company logos and important business dates making these an ideal promotional Christmas gift to clients and employees.

During the year I made a number of dedicated photography trips along with working holidays to some new areas of the UK. The highlight of these trips was a week spent in the beautiful Austrian mountains based in Seefeld walking through the fantastic alpine woodlands, meadows and hiking to incredible mountain summits view stunning views over the Tirol Olympiaregion scenery.

Trips within the UK included a short break in North Wales, a trip to Newquay in Cornwall and a walking holiday in the Lake District National Park.

During 2017 I altered my digital workflow by upgrading my image processing & management software from Capture One to Adobe Lightroom. Both pieces of software have their merits but I have found the performance of Lightroom superior which cuts down on editing time. As I try to keep my photographs as natural looking and as close to the original scene as possible, Lightroom has all of the basic image adjustments I need almost completely removing the need for Photoshop.

I have chosen a set of my favourite 10 photographs taken during 2017 and have put these into a collection of images below.

May I take this opportunity to pass on my best wishes for a happy and successful 2018 and to thank you all for your continued support through visits to this site and interaction and sharing on my social media channels.
