After over a year of being freelance adopting and updating a Strategy leading towards finding a niche –
It’s easy to keep options open till a specialist subject which “pays the bills” becomes apparent
So for my own benefit and to keep things in place, I’ve been using this blog, although not as often as I probably should.
Images, People, Places, Events, Sports and Business
I’m proposing that my new strategy will encompass the above headings.
“Images” will cover everything that doesn’t fall into the other categories
“People” will cover portraits, people in the street
“Places” will cover landscapes, towns and architecture.
“Events” will cover PR, music, festivals.
“Sports” will cover action, team and individual local sports,
“Business” will cover small business start ups
Additional ideas will come from “walks and talks” – advice sessions for people who would like to learn about photography and business.
Being based in Shropshire, there are multitudes of all of the above and the website name www.Shropshire-images.com prescribes that most of images will come from within the county.
Coming originally from Scotland, there will of course be the obligatory landscapes.
Concentrating on Shropshire for now the aim is to capture history past and present events keeping a keen eye on the future.
“images”: can be abstract images and anything which doesn’t fit the main categories.
“people” :have been discussed briefly in the previous blog , places will consist of a tick list of places to visit to create stock style images.
“places” :The main towns are:
Telford, Ironbridge, Church Stretton, Much Wenlock, Bridgnorth, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Broseley, Ellesmere, Oswestry, Bishops Castle, Clun, Craven Arms, Newport, Market Drayton Wem, Whitchurch
Images of local points of interest, high streets, railway stations and shops.
“events”: including local music events, town festivals, special events, annual events.
“sports”: including rugby, football and cricket clubs also golf and sports centres.
“business”: helping small business with affordable images to assist with promotional material and websites.
