All about me

In the MirrorHere’s me, well almost!

In a bid to blog a bit more, here’s 10 facts about me that some of you may not have known…

  1. My first proper job was as a bookseller for Dillons the Bookstore of a Saturday and occasional Sunday. I miss that job!
  2. I have also done Room Servicing (aka cleaning hotel rooms), checkout operator, Silver Service Waitress though have lost the knack of serving with the spoons, and deputy manager of a tea & coffee retailer.
  3. I have shot and lost against Olympic level archers at Head-to-Head competitions.
  4. As well as photography, I dabble with other crafts too, mostly crochet. Knitting and I don’t agree though.
  5. I was a volunteer at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014, known as a Clydesider. If I could go and volunteer at the Birmingham Games in 2022 I would.
  6. If I had the time, I would love to have a dog.
  7. When at School, I was involved in the School Show which we took to the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh for a week’s run.
  8. I was also a member of the Linlithgow Players, an amateur Dramatics Group, where I was mostly Chorus or Behind the Scenes (or both).
  9. I have waded in the ponds in a dress in front of the Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh in the name of photography and fun doing it!
  10. I’d like to do Route 66 in America as a road trip, but need a serious lotto win for that!

So, now you know a little more about me. Have you got a fun fact about yourself that you would like to share?

Another wedding coming up for FurrieBoots and this time we are heading to Aberdeen Beach Ballroom.

This Art Deco Building is a favourite of mine in Aberdeen and holds some good memories of Blues Awards Balls for Robert Gordon University.

Sunset on the Beach

This was taken a couple of years ago at low tide, I wasn’t out there in my wellies! I’d love to revisit this to see if I can improve on it. This is a bit harder now I am based in Newmachar.

I was visiting on Monday to go over the wedding that I will be shooting there in a few weeks and meeting with the couple that I am working for. The weather on Monday was fab if a little chilly, now just for it to be fine in June and not as cold!

A few larger blogs to come, but just now there have been a couple of little ones to let you know that I am still here… just not blogging as much as I should!

Am Back!

Hello

A quick note to say hello, and to tell you that I’m back taking photos when I can.

Am currently trying to get the website up to date. A website you say? Yes, www.furrie-bootsphoties.co.uk where you can purchase prints and canvases currently. I can get other items printed through my printers so please get in touch.

If you want a mini-shoot for either Christmas Presents or memories for the wall, then give me a shout. I will be working out package details shortly.

Can’t decide what to get, then how about a gift voucher? Any denomination you like or tailored to fit what you would like to gift, posted to yourself or directly to your recipient with a personalised message included.

I mentioned in the last post that there was some new things in the pipeline for FurrieBoots Photies in 2015 and instagram is one of them.

I have started a profile which can be found here http://instagram.com/furriebootsphoties/ which I hope to use for sharing Sneak-Peaks and Behind the Scenes shots as well as the occasional “wow!” photos or throwbacks from my personal feed.

Here’s hoping I’ll remember which feed I’m posting from 🙂

Have a good weekend!

“Why?” I hear you ask. Well it seems Facebook are looking to start charging those of us who run a “like” page so that we are “seen” by more of those who “like” our pages. If we don’t cough up then less of you will see what I am up to (not much of late but was hoping that the New Year would be a fresh start)

I’m thinking that I will have to blog more but not sure how many of you will sign up for that. Suppose I’d better set up the mail chimp and see how it goes.
