Day 86 – Soft Shapes

This wasn’t what I started Making images of. I tried a few things around the house before going with this, deliberately putting the two objects out of focus just a little.

Day 57 – Eyes everywhere.

November 16, 2009 3 comments


I must have been paranoid today as all I could see in everything I say was eyes watching me. It’s not like I was up to any mischief or anything. So I just had to get an image for today that was representative of my paranoia.

Right now I’m looking at the work of landscape photographer Mike McFarlane.

Work toward self employment.

So I have finally noted down a basic structured plan of action for the next few weeks and months ahead. I have some of the work done on part of this list from before now as I’ve been contemplating the move for some time so hopefully some of the points will get completed quickly.

So here are the rough notes on some of the items  I need to focus and hopefully report back on.

  1. Analyze skills and traits. Do I need to get training to  improve these. Business first then photographic.
  2. Determine market areas of work – niche, saturated, emerging.
  3. Collect information on sole trader requirements.
  4. Research, name, business and IT, register as self employed, home v’s premises.
  5. Contact business advisers, locate resources for start ups.
  6. Write business plan based on above.
  7. Marketing, advertising, bidding, promotion, target customers, e-comm. Training needed on some of these.
  8. Budget and cashflow, tax info, vat info. Contact accountant.
  9. ACTION.
