Getting to grips with creating YouTube videos, new video up!

It’s definitely been a new process for me, getting to grips with creating content for my YouTube channel! One showing what I can do and two learning that process of editing ! With out buying into a big program like adobe premier pro right away!

I’ve managed to do a few videos and post them up! I like the out come, again this is all done using mobile editing ! But still these are in 1080p or 4K so that’s not so bad on quality as YouTube will render the video in algorithm if it’s low quality and put it way down the list of showing!

If you would like to see the two videos click on the images below and please give it a like and maybe even a follow on my account!

Pinterest blow up! 26k organic impressions

This month I thought I would try something different ! I wanted to step away from social media a little and see what’s happening elsewhere.

Well I’m always looking for inspiration on Pinterest and everyone’s always posting did you see this? did you see that? on Pinterest! So ! I started posting my work to my Pinterest account ! https://pin.it/LA2I4vz

I created a folder and named it simply my photography, and then started adding the work I had stored on my mobile device! Now it’s all pretty simple to do when you have the Pinterest app! Just click the + sign and add the image and any details such as title, info and a weblink if you have one!

Now if you’re used to facebook or Instagram the algorithm it kicking our butts with low views and paid content advertising. So I’ve been used to 100 ish impressions on an image. Now With this I’ve not paid to promote any image! Everything has been organic. The first few images didn’t do to much 20 impressions and as I was saying thought okay this is about normal.

20 impressions only!

So I posted a few more images and they started going up 160 – 200

168 impressions! Going up!

Then come the first big impression jump and to me I was happy organic views of an image more than I’ve had on social media in years ! 556 impressions in the image below!

Boom 💥 over the 500 mark!

Some of you may be thinking this is normal now I’ve only seen big number showing up on image of nudes or news posts other get a good number due to following! Now my following is low! Pinterest 40 followers Instagram 1450 not big at all!

Well I was a little addicted by this stage I started adding images to build up my portfolio and possibly gain the same kind of impressions a few of them didn’t get many view but then others started growing! 600+ 800+

And then there it was I hit my first 1200 views on and image! I was bouncing off the walls ! Me, my work, a Photographer on a lonely mission to get known!

Boom 🤯 1.2k impressions

Now this was in my first week ! I’m only on week two now and my numbers on certain images are still low but then others are getting over the 1k but yesterday one image went ballistic! I posted an image just before leaving the house to go run some errands!

When I got back I was thinking about my image was it good enough it wasn’t someone I had posted shooting on there in that style before! Well it got the better of me and I picked up my phone and clicked the app! And there it was ! 6500 impressions! Over 6.5 k Of views this was shocking ! Happy understatement of the day! Mind blown head shock! Here is that image!

Well I’m definitely blown away with that now with Pinterest you can see the monthly stats on posting just to my photography pin board this month has so far racked me up 26K of impressions and 18K audience 18000 people seen my page that’s more than see my Instagram last year in just two weeks ! Let alone a month!

Below is my stats

Last 30 day Pinterest stats

So honestly if you’re trying to get your work seen by the masses the maybe social media like facebook or Instagram are not the way forward ! They’re a great medium and in fairness you could help the views by posting links to social pages too! Just to gain a little extra viewing! But my new best friend is definitely Pinterest!

It’s helped my website to grow, it’s helped my social pages grow as the links are there on the images and it’s boosted my interest from people want to have work done by me! All in all I think it’s a great place to grow and watch this space for the what the rest of this month brings if this is the start I look forward to seeing what can come from stepping away from the norm!

Give it a try yourself and let me know how you get on! Any free advertising is worth the two minutes it takes to set up and the 30 seconds to post!

Our New look website !

Again it’s long over due!

Finally managed to get some time out to edit the website, and change up its look.

I’ve been super busy the last few months and what with Christmas and shooting/editing it’s been thought getting any time to update this page.

But it’s finally happening! Yes, I’ve got a little time to get online and make those very much needed changes! Clean up and give my brand, the look it deserves.

Head over to our landing page and give us a comment or two! Let me know what you think!

It’s got a few more changes to come but it’s looking great in my opinion! Be that on mobile device or laptop, it’s clean and simple.
