We're already 2 months into the year but I feel a bit Groundhog Day-ish about 2015 so far. It feels like it's constantly beginning. Like, it hasn't been happening yet? Same shit, different day etc etc etc. Because of this, I never took a moment, sat down, and really thought about my goals for the year. Now, I'm not normally one for making lists and writing things down, in fact, I never do it. But it seems to be working for other people so I thought I would give it a go. Here are my goals for the year which may extend beyond, and are related both to my personal practice and college work, as well as my non-photographic life. Maybe.
- TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS.
- LOOK AND SEE. Get your head out of your phone (arse) and LOOK around, SEE what is happening. Photograph it.
- PLAY WITH (more) MOVING IMAGE STUFF. Get a move on, ha.
- PICK A THESIS TOPIC and work on it over the summer you absolute gobsheen.
- FINISH YOUR WEBSITE and fill it with content that will increase your chances of...
- (ATTEMPT TO) GET WORK WITH AGENCY MODELS. No more time for amateurs, need the real deal if you want to...
- GET YOUR WORK PUBLISHED. Not just once. Start harassing people again to publish your work. Get back on it.
- ASSIST MORE PHOTOGRAPHERS.
- STOP BEING AN ARSEHOLE. Remove anything (or anyone) in your life that fills you with hatred or causes bad feelings to rise up inside of you.
- POST ON THIS BLOG MORE. I know I know I know I was really really really sick, and it was okay to take some time off, but this blog is really important to me and I want to keep it active. Before I took my time away from this, I was getting lots of views and actual reader interaction and it was really fulfilling.
The images in this post aren't mine, but they're selected from months of pinning on pinterest and I thiiiiiink could be slight indicators as to where my work is going/where it might end up over the next, what, 10 or so months? Who knows. Either way, it'll be interesting to look back at the end of this year to see if I achieved all I wanted to, and if I was right about whether or not my influences are going to have as big an impact on me as I think they will.
Until next time!
