Dear Followers & Friends
2015 was an amazing year in which I was fortunate enough to do extensive travel, during the year I visited a foreign country every month with a total of 9 different countries on 4 different continents..............and yes I do know how lucky I am.
As a photographer you have live with the constraints of 'limited time, this means that the dream shot you envisage just doesn't happen because you are not there at the right time. It would be lovely to spend 3 weeks on location in one place waiting to nail the perfect shot, however most of us have to get what we can when we can and hope for the best. The consequence of this is that you have to take the rough with the smooth, that said I am a big believer that the world will throw in a few nuggets of unexpected luck to counter balance this. Personally I think I am a very lucky photographer and more often than not the conditions work in my favour.........that has probably put the kiss of death on 2016 :-)
I have chosen my personal favourite photo from each month of last year, this was very tricky as some months I hardly got any success whereas other months I was spoiled for choice. Interestingly the same 'little monkey' AKA Ella just happens to cap & collar my favourites by featuring in my January & December shots.
A SPECIAL MENTION to my lovely other half who, unbeknown to me, was taking photos of me all the way around Iceland in November, the shot at the top of this blog is one she took of me disappearing off with my tripod.
I hope you like the shots below and I look forward to plenty of snapping in 2016.
All the best and thank you all for your support, James :-) xx
