Another year has passed and I’m super excited to say that 2018 has been a cracker of a year for both SvenStudios, and myself personally. 2018 has seen me transition into being a full time wedding photographer with SvenStudios, putting aside my previous career as a primary school Japanese teacher, a role I had held for 8 years, with SvenStudios as a part time venture. Now I can say SvenStudios weddings, and my artwork at StevenDuncanART has allowed me to go full time, which is absolutely awesome! Not as awesome however than the birth of my lovely daughter, Chloe! Cute as can be, both my wife an I have enjoyed being with her all year, with me working from home and her on maternity leave. It’s been a wonderful year with incredible opportunities opening up which makes me excited to see 2019 come around!
During 2018, I covered 26 weddings as a wedding photographer, and a further 5 solely as their photo booth operator. This number is a little down on last year’s 33 weddings covered, but this allowed me to cover other things, such as my first baby shoots, website designing and other freelance work. I actually ended up with a total number of clients exceeding than of 2017. As of writing this blog I have 20 weddings booked in 2019 so far, so I’m certainly looking at surpassing this year’s number of 26.
I put together a bit of a video with 1-3 photos from each of the 26 weddings I covered in the last year below
What’s coming in 2019?
2019 should be an interesting, and very busy year! I have 12 weddings booked within January to March, and I’ll be heading over to Greece early June before heading up to Darwin in late June for weddings! I’ll be looking forward to potentially earning my first gold bar on my Master Photographer ribbon with the AIPP. I’ll be undertaking some business caching with the industry renowned Mark Rosetto in the early months of the year, which should see me offer even more to my clients than ever before!
Looking forward to it!
