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!

Two days later, I was photographing my first of three models that afternoon, one hour after I stepped back into Keele. It was finally time for Academink II! Typically, it was only 5 days before the university year ended and all undergraduates headed home, so time was short once again. Six Academink models, and a law society ball were all photographed within those few days. And only yesterday I gave a presentation on my business plan in hope for some investment and support with the business side of things. So in short, I'm pretty knackered... but I've loved it all.

The images from Academink II are already looking fantastic. The first project reinforced my love for location shooting, so it's wonderful photographing around this beautiful campus, rather than a scorching studio. I feel I can actually inject more of my style, which I felt the first project lacked. It's going to be a great collection when it's finished. I'm still looking for more tattooed students, so drop me a message if you're interested! 

The wedding was stunning, and we couldn't have asked for better weather! My uncle looked the happiest I've ever seen him, and bounced through the day with his infinite charm and laughs. The images look awesome, and I haven't even started editing! I can't wait.

Now I have 3 months before I finish university forever.  That means either 20,000 words of dissertation, or 9-5 internship. This doesn't mean the end for my 365 days of awesome by a long shot, but it has taken a battering! I'll be trying to plug the gap through the rest of the year, so don't stop following! You may miss out on something incredible ;)
