January 2010

So what will 2010 hold for Southampton Photographic?  Well, the year has got off to a slow start; not helped by the recent spell of exceptional bad weather.  January has been quiet in past years so no drama and it has enabled me to get on with those things that I just don’t get round to throughout the year… Marketing is one of those necessary tasks that always seems to get put on the back burner until ‘January’ and I can now report that that’s another task crossed of my list

Reports in the media this week that the UK is now out of recession, just, should encourage some business growth in the first half of 2010 but I doubt we will see much improvement until midway through the year maybe towards the end of the third quarter. The timing in general couldn’t be worse; the prospect of a general election only weeks away and the uncertainty of who our next government will be will do little to stimulate the economy. As a small business owner I need confidence to return to the market, clients to see light at the end of the tunnel and in turn start spending on services such as photography.

Bookings are coming in for February so I will report on things again at the end of the month.

To me photography is about passion and the need to capture images that exist for only brief moment; then bringing these images to the attention of people who didn’t see what was right front of their very own eyes.
