As I start to wrap up another year in the Studio, it’s always enjoyable to reflect upon the year’s events.

It has been epic and challenging in ways that I didn’t expect; the two biggest changes to my working life being my move to a lovely new studio and the birth of this very blog.

The latter in particular, along with my entry into the Twittersphere, has had a profound affect on the business.

Approaching 10,000 page views since its inception, existing clients have been kept in the loop (and seem to have enjoyed having their work on show) whilst an altogether new audience has come my way too; new clients have found me, images have been sold directly from these pages and the introduction of Weekend Videos has sparked a whole new level of surprise traffic!

So, thank you 2010—it’s been huge, albeit completely at odds with any script I would have dreamed up.

And of 2011?

I’m looking forward to stoking the irons in the fire, to BALTIC hosting the Turner Prize and, of course, wishing Alec Finlay the very best fortune in the Northern Art Prize next month…

I’ll look forward to seeing you all on the other side.

Finally, I thought I would leave with links to the posts that, in my opinion, have formed some of the highlights to my early blogging career.

These are some of the posts from March to November (click on the images below to be taken to their respective posts);  there are good’uns in December too—just scroll down further to see those!
