A new path....


This photo was recently sold to the owners of the Kiwi Run website. Check out their awesome banner and unique travel and running blog here.

For a while now my poor photography blog has been sitting over at wordpress all sad and neglected! Ironically it's called  "Tauranga Daily Photo" but it hasn't been daily for sometime now! I also focus on a lot of nature photos and Tauranga is about a lot more than cherry blossoms and Kowhai Flowers and I am not getting out and about often enough to really capture it all.
All this time at home has given me plenty of time to think about where I am going with my photography and I've decided that it's time to try and turn it from a hobby and into something that earns a little money. Well that's the plan anyway! Now that I have finished my course and gained my diploma I really need to get out there and do something with it!  I've got hundreds of photos sitting on my computer and most of them will stay there forever, unseen, unpublished and under utilised even though I have had quite a few published in magazines I seem to have lost the flow for a bit there!  I am taking some of my favorites and the more commerical images out from the darkness and putting them onto the NZ photosales website  where they will be available in a range of print and digital sizes and on gift products such as postcards, puzzles and mounted blocks. You can even send a free e-card from the NZ Photosales Website. I am posting photos that feature on the site on a new blog called "Lucky Dip Photography" and I hope you will go over and check it out (it is free to browse of course!)  I am also going to retire my wordpress blog, and post more of my photography here along side my art.
So! that's what I've been up to...and now I am going to do a tour of blogesphere and see what you've all been up too!
