Some info about my blogs

Hello dear readers and welcome to the blog section of my official website. First of all, keep in mind that I will probably not be that active here. You can expect most of my posts being on either the Home or Recent Work section. With that being said, I would also like to give you some general info about the types of blog posts I plan on writing if I ever decide to be more active here (read – if I ever have more free time). So let’s start with that:

Don’t expect any personal things “Dear diary” things since I am really against with sharing my personal info on my website. It is enough for you to know my first and last name, but any more of that is out of boundaries for me. In other words, there will be no boyfriend drama, family time stories and stuff like that. Nope! I’ll try to keep most of my blog posts job related, at least to some extent. With that being said, I would like to brag a bit and give you some insights: I already have 2 blog posts written and I will post them down below this bunch of text asap. One of them is related to my new business drone (it’s amazing, I love it more than anything) while the other one is just me giving you more behind the scenes info on what it’s like to be a professional photographer.

And that’s about it, guys. This is pretty much everything I wanted to share with you on my blog page. As I already said earlier, do not expect a lot of content here since I really doubt that I will free time to write such nonsense. With a lot of work that I’ve been enjoying for the last couple of months, I barely find time for my friends… Having my own blog in addition to all of that would just be too much for me to handle.

Got myself a brand new drone!

Drone DJI InspireI’m sure you guys know that I am not your typical photographer. Nope! Even though I do spend most of my time on celebration taking pictures with my DSLR camera, the most awesome perk of my job is the aerial photography. Yup, you read that correctly – I do aerial photography… If you haven’t heard about it yet, it relies on these new awesome tech gadgets called drones. Professional photographers like myself mount their cameras and then fly around the celebration while taking awesome aerial pictures. The end product looks awesome since it gives you a whole new perspective. Now that you know a bit more about aerial photography, I would like to introduce you to my new aerial photography drone – DJI Inspire. It’s a pretty expensive little fella that cost me slightly over $2k. Yup, it’s incredibly expensive… but it has the performance that completely justifies its huge price tag. It is pretty big and has a great little feature that makes its wings skew upwards once it gets in the air. Not only does this look cool but it also allows it to have more responsive controls and fly even smoother in midair. Mine came with Zenmuse X5R gimbal and 4K camera. It’s a great combo but I am already looking to purchase another one which is compatible with my Nikon D500. Well, that’s about it for my first ever blog post. I have another one already written, I just need to format it a bit before posting it here as well. So anyways, I just wanted to show you how thrilled I am because of my new drone. I am thinking of gifting my old one (DJI Phantom 2) to my niece Amanda who, to be honest, reminds me of myself when I was her age. So young, innocent and rebellious. Amanda, if you’re reading this… I’m coming home next weekend and I’m bringing you a gift!

This is crazy!

A couple of hours ago I was finally done with setting up the biggest part of my website. Now, it is already 2 am and I’ve decided that I might as well get some content on here as well. So here I am, after uploading the first blog post (it’s the one about my brand new drone), I am finally done with formatting the second one so I decided to give you some behind the scenes insight. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about how crazy being a professional photographer really is…

I am in this business for more than a year now, and needless to say, I am loving every part of it. For me, the best part of the entire “professional photographer” experience is the fact I get to go to all sorts of places and visit new people each week (I do gigs once per week, twice at max). I already heard lots of amazing stories and have seen some amazing scenery. In addition to that, you wouldn’t believe how good professional photographers are paid. Not only that, but they get paid extra if they provide their clients with spectacular aerial shots… That’s pretty much why I decided to buy a new drone in the first place – better drone equals better photos… Better photos equal to happier clients, and we all know that happy clients tend to pay more. The crazy part is that I am just 1 year in the business and I am already overbooked. In the next 3 months, I have 1.5 gigs per week on average. You might consider that as a low number, but when you take into consideration the amount of time it takes me to prepare everything for a single event, and the amount of time it takes me to get the pictures ready in their physical form afterward, you’d be surprised… Anyways, that’s pretty much what I wanted to let you know here – I am overbooked. In other words, if you have an event in the next 3 months and you would like me to be your personal photographer of choice, I am afraid I will have to pass your offer…
