How to transform from an artist selling postcards at the local craft market to one who sells art for thousands is the question on most artists minds.
Assuming that an artist has merit and such prerequisites the rest is surely branding and marketing. The more sought after an artist becomes the more value the art has. Price is after all what the purchaser is willing to pay.
To this end we are going to be using auction houses to sell some of our art. The disadvantages are obvious, no personal touch, crippling commission charges amongst the many. The more subtle advantages are that the name of the artist then starts to become 'tracked' through the various and so important art databases. Hopefully this adds to the snowball of publicity.

Of course that meant hauling all the kit off to her place but hey I don't mind.
The shoot took a long time to settle down, she laughs a lot and was uncomfortable relaxing and 'letting go', but in the end we got there and produced some reasonable results. Predictably on reflection she decided that maybe it wasn't so bad and wants to do it again. This to me is a success, I know that the next shoot will be a big improvement and I'm really looking forward to it.

As I was down visiting my sister in Somerset I decided to take the chance of an early morning shoot on the beach. 9 miles of sand is a good reason and I know of a lovely old wooden shipwreck. Just the rotting hulk now but it's still a pretty good, if done to death location.
Everything went well, the light was pretty good, I just underestimated the chilly breeze. By the time the shoot finished I had pretty much lost all the feeling in my fingers and it had stopped being quite so much fun!

Lisa and Natascha are both law students at Solent University, although I actually know them through Lisa's husband Dragi. I've had a shoot with Lisa before and she's great. Dancing was always her passion so she's pretty used to performing. Natascha on the other hand is a complete beginner, although you wouldn't know it. Obvious talent I only hope that she continues to pose.
