Last October I undertook a personal project with this blog, whereby I decided to post an image every day for a period of 3 months. The aim was to give myself a simple project that would be fun, and also would ensure that I continued to process my way through the immense collection of images captured on our recent European trip. Having recently exceeded the self imposed 3 month challenge (I began daily posting on the 12th October), I found my habit simply stuck. A side benefit for my professional portfolio site has naturally been an increased amount of views leading to better search engine optimisation results; certainly I feel I have enjoyed more success with this method than with my past (very expensive) dealings with two ‘professional’ SEO companies based here in Melbourne…
While daily posting has certainly been fun, I have now decided to change back to posting a more in depth article on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
I intend to also continue publicising each post through Linkedin; while I realise that this may be considered strange if I were an accountant, however it must be remembered that my business is in images; I am primarily an architectural, industrial and commercial photographer, but I do also supply travel images as stock files, as well as providing large high quality prints for both business and personal display. I have had a reasonable number of commissions and interest in my work as a result of linking my blog posts to a variety of outlets.
One last image before I return to a slightly more sporadic posting schedule, captured inside the Duomo in Florence. This is actually two images stitched together using the 17mm TS-E f4, giving in my opinion a nicely dramatic view up towards the amazing artwork (which I naturally photographed later using the 70-200mm f2.8 L II).
Thank you to everyone who has followed along with my daily posts. Many more images, both professional and travel still to come!
