Happy new year 2022 dear readers and friends!
https://www.alessandra-photogen3.com/ went live last year May and after a very first "Welcome blog", I remained silent for the rest of the year :-(
As there is a limit between "not spamming" and "not writing" :-) this year I am planning to get in touch once in a while, trying to ensure the balance between "overflow of newsletters" and "interesting photography updates".
So let's get started with this short panoramic of what is new on this website and what is planned to happen in 2022 with respect to my photography.. hopefully with more things to be added in the coming months!
First of all, as of this year, on my products webshop you can filter per color. As I love colors and as I know often people looks for specific colors when deciding to buy a painting or a photo, this filter will help you to find quicker what you are looking for, together with the division between travel photography and commercial photography which was already embedded in the product portfolio page.
A new addition to the website I am really happy about is the eGift Card page, which you can find at the top right side of the menu. Photography is very personal but you can't go wrong with a gift card! So let your friend choose the most beautiful photo: just choose an amount, write a personalized message and make this eGift your own. And if someone is looking for a particular expensive photograph (large format or acrylic glass..), the eGift Cards can be combined so you can now make group gifts to your friends!
The FASHION COLORISTA photography project which started last year and you can find in my portfolio page, will continue this year as well! This is because last year it has been a real challenge to meet models and work together. The first photo shoot with lovely Annabel and Donia Serena has been lovely but also adventurous, trying to capture a sunny window of opportunities between each one's availability and one lockdown and the other. More colorful fashion photo shoots will happen this year, hopefully as soon as the Dutch sun will start shining again..
A Basic Photography Skills training is "work in progress" and hopefully it will be finalized and available for booking in my services page in Q2 2022. It will start with 1:1, max 1:2 physical meet ups and if not possible it will be provided virtually. The book is ready and a video will come later on in the year.
I am also totally happy but also thrilled to announce to you that the venue is already rented and in June you'll be able to enjoy, if you want, a nice photography exhibition in the very center of The Hague. We'll have a good time together with art, music, drinks and some deserved fun. You will be able to find it in my events page. So stay tuned as the exact dates and location will be disclosed later on this year. The venue is also "Covid-19 proof" :-), with its 180sqm of space which will allow us to keep some distance if needed (hopefully not...!). The venue is also rented over 3 weeks, so we will be able, if necessary, to make smaller subgroups .. and have 3 parties instead of one ;-)
Don't forget my social media presence in the social page (under "media"), where you will find the links to my Facebook and Instagram Pages + my Pinterest moodboard as I always use Pinterest to look for inspiration for my photo shoots. In my social page, you can find also a little bit about me and the blogs I post.
Last but not least, remember that I am just one click away and you can always contact me via my contact page in case of questions or for a customization. Correct, because you can send me a picture of a wall in your house where you would like to add one of my photographs to see how it would look like. I can customize the view and show exactly how it would like, so that you will have the perfect idea for your final decision! Please note that for my Basic Photography Skills training, unless you have specific questions, you can directly book a session in my webshop/services page.
Many other things, smaller or bigger, will happen "behind the scenes" during this year: I am becoming an expert of marketing campaigns, SEO capabilities and facebook ads.. but please don't hire me for that! I am also hooking up with old friends and other photographers in the city of The Hague to do some exciting photography together, experiment, learn and exchange.. A lot of work to do, a year full of good resolutions... let's now hope that I will be able to meet all my plans and that Covid-19 will give all of us the break we deserve...
After all, hope is always the last to die....!
