Okay, so I have been naughty and not kept you all up to date with everything that is going on behind the scenes here at K Lou Photography, but I have finally got round to writing a blog post about it, yay!
So for the last 9/10 months, (maybe a bit longer actually) I have taken some time out from booking in any new photoshoots to concentrate on training and to make some changes that are long over due.
I did an amazing 1-2-1 with Kate Hopewell-Smith last year which changed the way I think about photography. She really opened my eyes and made me think about changing my business to something that reflects and represents me better. Kate is so amazing at what she does and has just launched a new training venture; click here to take a look.
I also did another amazing 1-2-1 with Andrea from Pink Lily Photography who gave me some confidence back and helped me work with light on location better and again be more creative with my images. I have more training courses booked in this year; one with the very talented Nina Mace in the summer which I cannot wait for!
So I have decided after a lot of thought and soul searching that I will be closing K Lou Photography later this year and I will be launching Karen Ellingford Photography. I have just signed off my new logo and I’m currently working on the design of my brand new website – it’s looking amazing and I can’t wait to share it with you all! I am working with a wonderful design company called Media Novak and I can’t thank them enough for all the hard work they have put in and for being a company that ‘gets me’ and what I am aiming to achieve. For more information on them click here.
With the new name, logo and site there will also be new prices and a new price structure that will give my clients options rather than having to pay one set amount and also some new products that I am excited to share with you once everything is in order.
So that’s all my news for now, I have been having a little play with colour recently and how it can change an image so here is a before an after of an image that was just a test shot.
Finally summer is not too far away and we have already had some really lovely days, now is a wonderful time to get booked in for a location shoot! Below are some of my images taken on location and to get booked in please go to the contact tab.
