The business of photography has become tougher every year and this is not just down to the financial crisis. Everyone now considers themselves a photographer, even though they have no idea of the market they are dabbling in. This has destroyed business for the professionals and many can not survive and make an honest living. I have reverted to taking images for myself only and have to tend to a day job in order to continue my photography.
This is the space I share my images, gripes and experiences.
Being a self-made Christmas Grump, I am glad that the festivities have passed. Essentially its a holiday for those that want to spend time with the family and especially have some excitement for the kids.
Well, the family didn't visit and I ain't got no kids. So, I despise the money-spending and shopping for stuff that eventually nobody wants or needs and blame the rising personal national debt on traders and advertising campaigns.
Best place to be on Christmas is out walking the dog!
