Apologies for disappearing

Wow life has been crazy!! Even more so than usual! It's been almost a month since I blogged, and there's nothing I can say except sorry. I could easily natter on about everything I've been up to, but I'll try to keep this short and sweet so I actually post it before next week!

First off, exams! Dissertation proposals and two exams were probably the death of me, this blog and my 365 project. From that point, things were looking down. I was simply too busy and too tired to keep on top of my photography, when my final educational exams drew near. Thankfully I think they went well! Two days after the last exam finished, I was whisked away to the back-end of nowhere on a business and creativity module trip, where I guttingly couldn't bring my camera. Oh how I wish I had it! The views from the rock climbs and scenery surrounding the camp were gorgeous, especially at sunset. There were so many opportunities for brilliant images over that exhausting week, that I just couldn't take advantage of. Not to mention, it pushed me even further back on my 365 days of awesome! Thankfully I wasn't photographing Woodstoke, like I did last year, the day I returned - I was absolutely shattered. But that didn't stop me journeying to Plymouth for my uncle's wedding two days later! Of course my camera was out for that!

90 days of awesome

Somehow, by the grace of Nikon, I've survived March which was even busier than February! Coming into this month, I knew my university deadlines would pose a challenge; and they didn't disappoint. For those of you who don't know, I'm studying for an MA in International Business, which takes up a lot of my time and sleepless nights. You'd think after four years at university, and over 60 assignments, I'd have learnt to start writing more than 48hrs before the deadline. Apparently not. Still, that hasn't stopped my photography alongside the occasional race against time.

My Tattoo Project

I am so psyched about my latest project! Monday saw my first studio session with not one, not two, but fourteen models! I've assisted on both fellow students, and internationally published photographers' studio shoots, but this was my first time to direct. It went awesomely!

I'm personally fascinated by tattoos, by both the designs people choose and why they have them. Personally I have a tiny manta ray on my right foot for nostalgic reasons, which I had inked a few hours before I flew home from 10 weeks in Fiji (long story for another day). With thousands of potential models around my university, I thought I could put together an epic collection of images showcasing young people with their body art. As they're still students, they could end up anywhere, doing anything.
