As nice and relaxing as my mini-break was, getting back to the normal rhythm has required hitting the ground running. Catching up with work in the office, and gearing up for getting the issue to press, has made these couple of days feel like a lot longer time, with the amount of work I’ve packed in. In other ways I do like being busy though. There’s no rest for the wicked at the weekend either. Tomorrow I’m off to The Gadget Show Live in Birmingham with 3, which should be fun. But also means I have to get up before 6am. On a Saturday. Surely there’s a law against such inhumanity. After surviving tomorrow I have two shoots on Sunday. Which is all nice and the stuff I love doing, but then just around the corner comes Monday and press week… And I haven’t even unpacked my suitcase yet.
Bookings for my wedding photography are rolling in at a nice pace. I’m now at a point where I have turn people away as there’s only so many weddings I can do while still being in full time employment as well. In fact, I’ve just about booked all my annual leave until the end of the year, just for wedding work. No holidays for moi this year… Oh how I yearn for the time when it will be possible to ditch the day job and concentrate just on the photography. It still seems such a long way off though, with us being nowhere near qualifying for a mortgage big enough to buy even a cave in the area we live in (out of commuting necessity). Oh well, just trying to keep my head down and push through it, as hard as it is. Fingers crossed it will be worth all the hard work in the end.
Hmm, I think I’m gonna head out to grab some lunch while there seems to be a break in the rain.
