I don’t know quite how to start this blog entry other than to just come out with it
I’ve won the Technical/Scientific Category in the 2011 International Master Photography Awards….
How cool is that
To be honest it’s left me a bit speachless, so I’ll just post some pictures of the night instead.
Thanks to TakeThatPhoto Ltd for the use of the event images taken during the evening’s ceremony and party

4 days ago it was 29.9 Celcius and we were sweltering.
Today … 13 degrees and it’s snowing in Scotland.
Here comes the winter – my favourite time of the year.
Nature’s way of telling me to tidy up my paperwork and keep my books up to date.
Some of you peeps in the interwebs may have seen the post that I scratched together earlier in the year titled “How does a photographer calculate their fees?“.
In there I skimmed through the basics of how a business can create a simple spreadsheet showing how to work out how much they need to earn to keep their company alive, so they can continue to provide a valuable service to their clients.
Forgetting the required creativity, skill, technique and equipment that is required for any profession that you choose to follow – this is what happens in the background long before (and after) someone picks up the phone with an enquiry.
Photography is the example here, but the core knowledge transfers to virtually every business.
