At last I will go to the gym. I gained 10kg Now I will have time for intense workouts. I even thinking to start taking sustanon for better results. I have heard that a lot of newbies get injuries at the beginning.


Running gear is silly if you've never lifted before - you will waste any potential for your newb gains and really have no idea how your body is reacting to the gear you are using versus how you would have just been doing without it. Definitely do not run gear until you've at least locked in to committed lifting for a year (but I would say longer).

Last wedding is December 10. Next wedding is in March. Between that time I'll do a bridal show, spend a week in Arizona playing golf in January and do a bit of work (and hopefully some sailing) on my boat.

Maybe even join a gym.

Really no off season ... just a slow down.

wedding in Dec 18th. one in January... 2 in February... etc.

*find a 2 week span to send some gear in for cleaning.
*spend more time in sprouts studio to understand better .... finalize setup.
*setup a couple of practice shoots. (January/February)
*edit weddings
*finish album designs
*review downloaded classes from creative live and SLR lounge.

•Year end equipment repairs
•Renovate office
•Contemplating a new PC build
•Bridal shows
•Trips to warmer climate with my wife
•Evaluate lighting gear. I have such a mishmash of lighting products. Wondering if Godox/Cheetah/etc. could cover me from speedlight to moonlight with one consolidated and integrated system.

I had a significant agenda for the off season, with mixed accomplishments.

My wife is now GM of our associate brand and is handling 100% of pre/post wedding CS and associate scheduling. It's a been a huge mental offload for me, allowing more focus on shooting and associate grooming/growth.

My main brand website renovation is almost complete — first site enema in 5+ years and I'm hopeful my still strong SEO will get a boost in some targeted areas.

For visual inspiration I avoided social media and choose to build my photo book library. I added 20+ books this year from Avedon, Erwitt, Steichen, WeeGee, Fan Ho, etc. I get more out of absorbing the work of a seasoned master than the latest rant on PetaPixel. And I do better to not look at a lot of wedding photography.

So all that, and a lot of travel and ping-pong.

Now it's back to work. 16 events in April - more next month.

please clarify. please please please

I mostly learned and practiced new techniques. Most of my business is portraiture and seasonal events that follow the school year, so there's been plenty to do. I'm not skilled enough to make weddings my primary source for business.

>please clarify

I had some duplicate keyword optimized post that were hurting me in some places, plus a number of low budget blogged weddings that didn't look good for the brand. Just a bit of Spring cleaning.

My off season aspirations of culling my own website have been postponed. My very pregnant wife opened a business on the side this spring with a colleague, so I've been working hard getting things in place online and in their office. Oh yeah, and remodeled 2 bedrooms. And we break ground on Ann addition to the house in a couple of weeks. 😬

But I noticed none of that has stopped you from posting uber-cute dog photos :-)
