What have I been upto this week! At Adrian Day Photography

Birthday week for me! It’s coming round to that time of year again ! Another year older for me and another year of being a photographer!

I’ve now been into photography twenty eight years! Wow how time has gone so fast!

I’ve not been a professional photographer all that time as I was still at school a good part of that and I took some time out before I come back to the art so now it’s been a little over 20 years picking up a camera !

Do you know what? There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t like photography! I honestly love what I do and enjoy everything about it! Even those times when I didn’t quite get the shot I was expecting! or that pose that just didn’t hit focus !

This week I’ve had a lot going on! Looking through where I have been and evaluating where I’m heading! What I’ve yet to accomplish and what I’ve already accomplished!

I’ve managed to get my work in places I didn’t think possibly on the streets of London and magazines that span the globe! I’ve also worked with amazing clients models and gained some fantastic friends along the way!

I’ve been lucky enough to use some great products cameras and locations that I’ve captured beautiful images I never thought I would create!

This lockdown has given me ideas and thoughts that have perplexed me! But also has shown me that even in the times we are working in! There is no reason we can’t keep an open mind and still be creative!

We are only held back by our imagination and today world doesn’t have to stop in the real world but the World Wide Web can open up endless possibilities!

So this week I’ve been busy !

  • Created and Etsy store.
  • Created a new dot com for Adrian Day photography.
  • Created a social media shop on my pages
  • Edited a number of images that I’ve revamped to today’s style.
  • took on E-learning ! (Yes I’ve been a photographer for 20 years but times change and it’s time to go with it!)
  • Also uploaded a number of images and links to Pinterest so people can see and maybe grow and get inspiration from my work!.

See now the view I have is that I’ve been waiting to long to do all the above and thinking that things will change!

Change only comes from doing something about what you want and need every single day! We can’t expect things to get better by doing the same thing every single day!

Okay guys and girls here are a few links for you to check out ! this is some of what I’ve been creating this week! Please if you like something show it some love ! Comment follow like it’s amazing to have your input and connecting with amazing people

Please let me know on here also if you like my posts so I know if I’m doing something right ! And hey it will be good to chat!

Business is first and foremost about making others happy

We get into business to pay the bills and to create something for our future!

This is true to a stage! What we don’t think about is that what we do ultimately makes others happy!

It’s something I’ve just found out. The bigger picture is that for 99% of businesses is that it’s ultimately making our customers or consumers happy.

Think about it like this, a baker makes cakes and you buy them to make your belly happy and that makes you feel good as the consumer but the baker is happy too because he is doing what he loves

Builder build a house with out thinking that what they’re doing is potentially making a house that will become a home for a family to grow and live happy ever after!

It’s the same being a photographer, though we capture images and we love what we do.. we are doing it to make others happy capturing your big day or taking that portrait of your grandmother who you love and want to always remember. It’s about making you happy!

It’s great that we can do what we love, while making a living yet at the same time making someone else happy!

I love that feeling of making others around me happy so remember everyone’s out to make you happy! Even when you don’t know it and take it for granted

I truly hope that what I do makes those who see it very happy and that it puts a smile on someone’s face! Here are a few images that I really hope makes you smile.

New Instagram growing slower due to new algorithms

New Instagram up and running!

It’s only just starting to get seen, it’s definitely taking it’s time picking up! I guess it’s not the best time in the world starting a new page, what with the new algorithm that’s just been rolled out by Instagram!

It’s looking like images are getting fewer likes and views than when I first started my other page! If it’s wasn’t hard enough in the first place with all the millions of people posting. Now there is a wall we have to climb just to be able to wave at people let alone get seen through the fog of hashtags and selfies

We all need to work harder to get our accounts out there and I see few people these days following others they all seem to be looking for others to follow them. But not always prepared to follow for follow. Or like for like.

One thing I pride myself on is the fact that I’ve always followed my following back and I always try to like for like.

If you’re feeling kind and you’re obviously reading this post! Pop over to my new page and give it a follow and some love then watch for the likes and follow in return! My word means more to me than anyone would know. I always keep to it it’s not only in business but in every day life.

Below are a few images from what I’ve posted so far on my new page. Click on the images to be taken to the actual Instagram post to like

Instagram back up account for Adrian Day Photography

A little over a week ago I was going to try running an advert on our main page.

For some reason the Instagram advertising has been locked and there seems to be no backing down by Instagram themselves. To unblock the page as someone else unknown to me paid for a promotion and didn’t pay the bill. I’ve never used paid promotions until this week.

This has meant that I’ve had to start a new back up account for our advertising, this isn’t all good news

Having tried out a two day advertisement and being quoted 1400 views, it seems posting on a new page that has very low following, mean that we don’t hit anywhere near that many accounts much more like 140 ..

If you have Instagram and would like to see more of what I’m working on please feel free to click >> Adrian Day Photography and follow it would be much appreciated. This account is going to be more about the black and white images I post.

I hope that you will agree that the images I post are worthy of you liking !

Below are a few images that I’ve posted up on the new page you can also click the images to head over to Instagram and be able to see more of the work I have created. And maybe even hit the like button on the image 😉

I really hope that you will like what you see and like this post too!

Before I go! If you follow my page or my blog I will do the same in return! If you comment I will do the same in return. It’s only polite to be kind and help each other grow! Have a great week!

Is Instagram dead? – has it lost the plot and put its self in quarantine!

I’ve been using Instagram for years… pretty much from day one…

It’s was great watching all the people posting amazing images and showing of what they was doing in a way that no other site had been doing.

Images got likes and each person had its real following in its own style, niche..

Everyone had a voice, everyone could be just who they wanted to be. okay there was a few restrictions and Instagram kept an eye on the naughty side.

As the years have gone on it’s become restrictive in ways that we don’t realise. We only don’t realise this because Instagram has taken it up-on it’s self to use it’s algorithm to put pay to getting seen in any way shape or form unless instagram feels you deserve it. or that you tick ever box it want you to.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been looking into where and what’s best to get yourself and images seen and noticed. Paid or free.

It’s looking like social media is now making it more like antisocial media! It’s killing its self off by doing all it can to so called be the best! Why if a site calls its self social would you stop people for doing exactly that.

I’ve tried everything to get a following used a number of different pages even posted images that have on other sites got tens of thousands of views and like yet on social media got just under 100 views and maybe 30 likes.

This to me isn’t worth my investment at all. I’ve paid for and done free posts and got nothing in return.

To me it’s seems that a number of people are coming away from the platforms and putting the money into their own websites and posting the work right to the bourses mouth! And getting so much more ! For way less.

A few weeks back I posted to Pinterest! From my website now my website is a free WordPress and my Pinterest is free.

In one seven day period I had over 60k of views and a large number of saves and like. And my views and comments to my website went from 10 to 100 per day!

It’s honestly a no brainier when you’re getting something for free and the numbers are showing for them self what’s happening . It’s only time before everyone goes it alone and walks away from so called social media !

This is just my opinion but try it your self and if you don’t see a difference let me know.

I’m sure in a day of media being a sales point that we need to find our best format or medium to get ourselves out there! It’s only smart business that we look out for ourself and our really followers and clients

Question is do you think it’s dead? What have you found that works for you? I’m always open to suggestions !
