2009 is knocking


~ Oiler Pride ~

Almost a new year....2009 is coming quick. I am looking forward to 2009, there is a lot I want to accomplish and many things I want to improve upon. I think new years are great moments for people to take stock and try to do somethings better or different then they were doing them.

Photography goals for me this year I think are to try and work with other photographers more. I got to meet a few photographer friends in 2008, Mr.Bill Cowen and the awesome Tammy. I think it's fun to talk and work with other professionals. Gives me a chance to learn, share and just have a cool friendship with people that love taking pictures as much as moi. :)

In 2009 I really want to work on some portfolio areas that are lacking for me:
  • Kids
  • Families
  • Men
  • Maybe some pets
  • lifestyle portraits

I guess there might be more then that but so far I think those areas need some work. I also want to get back to my roots which is nature photography. I've shot people so much lately I really miss getting some nature shots. Gear wise in 2009 I want to get:

  • a good wide angle lens (fish eye possibly too)
  • another body (if I win the lottery the 5dMII)
  • Another L lens (any kind)
I also hope to start a photography class here in Vegreville and teach some things I have learned about photoshop. I would like to meet other local photographers and start up some kind of a group. Like the famous group of 7...hehehe, we'll take over photography and become rich and famous. :) hee hee. 2009 is the year baby!! :) Well, lots of things to look forward to and I am excited to get to it. I wish everyone a wonderful year and hope that it brings positive things for your life. I know personally I have so much growing to do. I think more then ever this is a year for me to make even better personal changes and start growing more as a person.

And lastly, lets hope the Oil crush the Flames tonight after losing to the Sens. :) heheheh, I can't wait to wear proudly my Oiler jersey. I'll need a pic of that to post in 2009. It's an awesome jersey. Well, this is my last post of 2008. Have fun peeps.
