I was born in Australia 33 year ago, the youngest of 8 children into a fully Dutch family. So my first language is a Dutch/Aussie mix, and sometimes my sentences come back to front out. I love mangoes, watermelon and Dutch liquorice more than you could know – and I love chocolate more than I’d like to admit.
One thing Jasmine Star encouraged us all to do at her workshop in Christchurch a few weeks ago was to put more of ourselves on our websites.
I guess I’ve been struggling lately with exactly who I’m writing to. I’m STUNNED (and extremely grateful!) by the amount of visitors I get to this blog everyday, and because I don’t exactly know who you all are, I’m not quite sure what you’re interested in reading. You see, if you’re a photographer, you probably don’t care that I’m running (ahem, crawling probably) a half marathon in a few months. If you’re a bride-to-be you couldn’t care less about what fstop or lens rocks my world lately. I suppose there’s always the possibility of the hits all coming from my Mum (must call her more often…). So I’m going to just write about whatever I please, because not writing much at all is not much fun for anyone.
This year I’m going to try to start a couple of different series. One will be for brides (and grooms, but you know, it’s more likely to be brides!) and the other will be for photo geeks like me. I’ve been getting emails from other photographers with questions that may be useful for others as well. I certainly don’t claim to know everything (not even half of everything…), but if I do know something that you also want to know, go ahead and ask and I can share it with the everyone else. You can either email me, or join me on facebook and ask there or use the comments section below.
This was us at Jasmine’s workshop, taken by JD, Jasmine’s husband. I’m the one second from the right, in the red top, smack bang next to Jasmine (I’m totally namedropping right now).
So, I’ve got to build a section on the website about us, which has to include (*gasp*) photos. I HATE having my photo taken, which is why I can sympathise with my clients on a daily basis! But sometimes it just has to be done!
Ok, so that’s me for now! Over and out….
