Launching this blog and Silver Ash Photography

Today is the day! I am officially launching this blog, and by definition, my plans for the business!

The blog remains under construction, as do logos and so on. I am not yet charging customers as I need to build up my experience with using the studio on location as well as with different subjects. I have yet to create my business website (e.g. for client ordering) although it shouldn’t take long. I also need to build my portfolio to include photos other than immediate family, who are getting a little fed up of being photographed now!

The plan is to start charging at a heavily discounted rate from May 2010 onwards, and to be charging fully at some point over the summer when I feel I am ready.

Yesterday I quietly announced to some of my friends that I was seeking models for my portfolio building. Within six hours I had no fewer than 24 offers of a session across a very broad range of portrait subjects, which is MORE than enough. Thank you all so much for offering! I had to close my offer last night to all categories except for newborns, tiny babies and maternity, as these are areas which are a lot harder to get models for.

So if you know anyone within a reasonable distance of SE London who is pregnant or who has just had a baby and would be interested in some custom portrait photography for free, please point them in this direction. There are a few terms and conditions attached (mostly to do with credit) so for full information, please see my “About Me” page.

I am going to be extremely busy over the next few months building my portfolio, so you can look forward to seeing a lot of exciting photos here! Somehow, I also have to find the time to train for the London Marathon in April (seriously!) which I am running on behalf of the Miscarriage Association (sponsorship very welcome!) so if I look a little stressed, I hope you can forgive me!

Anyway.. here goes! Thank you for reading!
