i haven’t been using this blog so often, and i realise that i should.
as an indepedent photographer, i should always try to inform to the public what news i have or what i have been up to, just for selfpromotion. successful photographers are always good at this, who makes BIG money from editorials, commercials etc. i am not being cynical or anything but to some point, trying to live by an art form, such as photography, we photogrpahers should be eager to a certain level i guess.
will anyway, enough with talk but for photographs!
oh and a happy new year to you all!
random, totally random images from last year!
i feel kind of sad to see this.
