How Am I Doing? 4 – 6 Months 2015

So here we are. April, May and June! Compared to the start of the year, it feels like it’s been quiet on the shoot front. But that’s because the last few months have been spent focusing on some high end couture bridal and dress commissions and marketing the garments I have on the rail at the moment.

I rebooted my Etsy account last month and sold a few items fairly quickly, including one to Malaysia, so I’m thinking this may be the way to go. I have been designing and shooting new garments on and off so I have quite a healthy stock to shift now and as July is looking quiet I am throwing myself into new capsule collections. Some of the newer garments are now on Etsy but I am constantly posting tasters and in progress works on Instagram, another site which I am beginning to think is quite a useful tool for gathering interest.

I have also recently joined two new sites – The Freelancer Club and Portfora. Portfora seems to have the most activity and as well as spotting previous collaborators on there, I am already talking to new creatives about potential shoot work. So again this could be quite a useful site to keep on board with.

In terms of in-print imagery the results of some of this year’s earlier shoots (and even one or two from last year) have finally found their way into magazines. The published ratio is really up this year, partly thanks to Gary Clutterbuck’s shoot back in March which has already yielded three published sets now. I’ve included all the editorial versions as part of the shoot list below but added the images to their original shoot list now that the images have gone live (I hope that makes sense!).

In May I also finally got the chance to do my first group shoot. It was such a productive day on location outdoors near Crewe and we were so lucky with the weather! I’m hoping there will be more chances to style group shoots. It’s a satisfying way to work and brilliant for networking and I am met some great new people as well as being able to catch up with a few I already knew.

So onto the shoots……
