Profile Frame

Newest Frame Line – now in!!!

I saw a new frame a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. Sooooo I have added another line to the in stock ready to pick-up frames that I carry.

PLUS they are priced wholesale so it is affordable to add on to a print order. If you resell your work it allows you to offer a professional finished priduct at great prices. If you are buying for yourself it allows you to finish your prints so they are ready to hang when you get home. All prints are mounted in the frames using professional flex points.

New Year, New business card!

Back in November I decided that it was time to update my business card. I sat down and designed a new business card with the main emphasis on having the information so it is easy to read. I also wanted a new look with an updated photo so I tied out a few different photos and could not find what I wanted till I came across the Meadowlark! It was perfect bright, happy and NO SNOW 🙂

After laying out the back I sent them off to get printed. A day later, November 24 I got a notice that my business card order was shipped. Perfect timing for Christmas. Then the post office went on strike and I was told they would not be here till December 18. On the 28th I contacted my printer as the order still showed they were in Windsor and had been since November 24. The printer apologized, redid the order and shipped it out by courier. This morning at 10am they showed up!

I am VERY pleased with how they look, bright and easy to read!! I guess the wait was worth it.

Business Card 2019 version

A funny side note. I am at work on January 15, 2019 and in walks the courier with you guessed it my lost order. Well better late than never. Again did not help me to get my cards out for Christmas but I now have a lot of cards. So if you come in and get a few cards in with your order please hand them out. May as well put them to good use.

Planning for 2019 – my goals

So as 2018 comes to an end I am planning what goals I want for the next year. I have the same general items for each year that I am in business …

  • Improve my photography
  • Keep my website & blog up to date
  • Improve print quality and types of prints offered
  • Add more courses and workshops

But those are general and if I did not have them then there would be a big problem as everyone or every business should have something to work towards.

So what do I have to work toward? I have heard many experts say we should have three types of plans / goals in our lives. The first are the BIG ones, or the dreams. The second is the more achievable ones (medium goals) but still will require some work and the third is the easy ones. SO for the next year so far I have the following…..

Big Goals

  • Drive to the Northwest Territories
  • Drive to Ontario for the fall colors
  • Go to Churchhill to photograph the polar bears
  • Get out kayaking more
Goals -  get out for more camping

Follow my exploring here

Medium Goals

  • Upgrade my 70D’s to the promised Canon 7D mark III
  • Add a vacuum press to the printing department
  • Head back to the coast for a whale watching trip
  • Head to Jasper to photograph Caribou
  • Add more premade frames to my selection
  • Update some of my display prints in the studio
  • Build a copy center for artwork and get polarizing filters for lights
  • Market more of my nature / wildlife work

Little Goals

  • Clean-up the backroom and the attic
  • Clean up my camera gear, and organize
  • Get out shooting more
  • Organize the shooting room more
  • Update my outside sign
  • Switch out my main hard drive in the office
  • Build more specialty frames

I know that these will change but I like having things to work towards. On last years list was a major rebuild of my website and I FINALLY got to it with two weeks remaining in the year, but it feels great to have that mostly done.

So what is one of your goals / plans for 2019?
