Where Have I Been?

As some of you may know, I used to run a photography blog but discontinued it in 2015. Well here is my return to blogging. I hope you will join me on this journey.

2016 was a big year for Alex Robertson Photography, however, I’m hoping that 2017 will be even better. Here’s how I spent my 2016 away from blogging.

I started 2016 with a brand new camera and more motivation forever. I was studying photography at college but not enjoying it too much, I knew I wanted to do my own thing. So I started planning and by the summer of 2016 I was selling my own prints in the Farm Shop where I live and via my Facebook page. Although I haven’t sold many, I have had a steady flow of people wanting to buy my images which definitely helps my motivation. It’s always nice when other people appreciate your art.

The summer of 2016 was rather busy, as well as selling my prints, I also attended several events. The first of which being the opening to the exhibition Shoes at Bowes Museum. I was invited to take photos of the event. I was definitely one of the youngest people there by a mile. There were lots of men in fancy suits and ladies in wonderful dresses. Although I stood out a bit in my skinny jeans, I did get several compliments on my Dr Martens. Which, at a shoe exhibition, I was quite proud of. The whole night was a delightful experience where I got to really see what it’s like to be a photographer.

Next was the summer fayre. As most of you may know, each year I help my mum run a charity fun day. This year was no exception, I helped with the organisation and took photos on the day. The atmosphere was amazing as always.

Even Batman took time out of his busy schedule to join the fun

The third and final event of my year was Wolsingham Show. Each year they have a photography competition and 2016 was my first year competing in the adults section rather than the teenager section. Fair to say, I wasn’t expecting much as there were so many talented photographers displaying their work. However, I came away with a first prize, and multiple second and thirds. This was a huge moment for me, I realised that my work was actually on par with some amazing artists and I had finally moved up from beginner.

The end of 2016 was nowhere near as exciting as the middle, however, I did begin my level three qualification in Photography and I am also carrying on to build my own bussiness. This is carrying on into 2017 where I hope that both my academic and professional career can flourish. I look forward to seeing you all in the future!

See you soon,

Alex
