Here we go into 2016 another year of exciting challenges.
2015 was an interesting year to say the least. Lots of our regular business simply evaporated. Not just for us but for hundreds of photography studios across Australia. Infact, 2015 will probably go down as a defining year for photography. With many well known and highly reputable studios closing up shop. Others still operate but have down sized dramatically.
On the bright side for those of us happy to tackle these current challenges. New oportunities are presenting themselves. Often from totally unexpected areas. Which is great.
We spent much of the Christmas/New Year break doing maintenance and preparing for 2016. Wedding bookings are strong so we’ve been busy trying to make sure our traditional wedding album coverages continue to be of the highest quality.
Photography heading in to 2016 for us looks really exciting with a number of new projects coming up and we are very excited about those. Plus we have spent a lot of time rejigging our workshop series to make the content more is relevant and user friendly.
We are still working behind the scenes trying to get out extended touring workshops up and running. Our major holdup on those is being LEGAL in all states of Australia. A seriously difficult task at a time when state regulators have greater problems than accommodating a little photography business running photography workshops. Think Uber and ride sharing and its impact on a highly regulated industry.
There are a lot of different photo tours out there and we are determined Excitations Photo Adventures isn’t going to be like any other…. Sadly that means lots of permits and licenses that other providers don’t need or just simply pretend they don’t need.
Now into 2016 we go. Look forward to catching up with you during the year.
