OK, phones are back on the hook, new year planner is on the wall and I’m back from my “summer” holidays. PeopleByRyan is open for business for 2011.
After last year’s wonderful though moist visit to Venice, we settled for somewhere a little warmer this year. Which gave me a chance to catch up on reading and even wear my sunglasses.
At this time of year I usually run through a brief review of the previous year. It was, not to put too fine a point on it, amazing.
Just under 2 dozen weddings plus fashion shoots, portraits, children, babies and lots of other stuff to take pictures of meant that I clocked up about 120,000 pictures in 2010. Although all my work is first and foremost for my clients I was delighted to see my work on 3 magazine covers and in over a dozen printed features. I also did expert chats on a couple of websites and had my work showcased on “lots” of blogs and websites. Oh, and I was featured in a couple of TV shows too – but they won’t air until later this year.
Talking of “later this year”….to my amazement and delight, I find I’ve been nominated for a really rather prestigious award. Fingers crossed but I’m absolutely delighted even to be in the room with the other nominees. Thank you so much to everyone who voted.
All of this lead to a huge increase in traffic to the website. Something over 30 thousand unique visitors to this website looked over 200,000 pages. The most popular story was behind the scenes at my underwater fashion shoot, while the most popular wedding was Victoria and Ashley’s at Westenhanger Castle (yes, the one with the flying bride. And the rainbow.) with Gemma and Adam’s TV wedding coming a respectable second.
Which only leaves me to make the usual promise for this new year – you ain’t seen nothing yet! Looks like I have a lot to live up to. But then I said that last year. Bring it on.
