Surely not another positive post?

Although still struggling with medical issues my business is booming and I can happily announce that not only am I exhibiting in the London Photo Festival next month I am their official photographer on the friday evening :) I am petrified of going to big old London by my tiny little self but I think it will help my confidence no end :) I also want to send a big thankyou to Andy :) aka Mr Baron as he wrote my biography when I was struggling he is always there when I need him for words whether it be writing something or proof reading so a big thankyou and im really loojing forward to meeting you all in December :) if it wasnt for this site as well as getting fab advice and help when I needed it I wouldnt have made such fab like minded friends :) and obviously it wouldnt be me if I didnt post a photo lol so here is 1 of my 3 entries and Andys favourite :)

  • Congratulations, Michelle! That's great news! I also know how hard it is to grow a photographic business after a brain injury, in a hugely competitive market, during a recession, so I applaud your progress and successes!

  • Replied twice and had it eaten - so just saying HUGE congratulations - you are inspiring. Enjoy your success.

  • I live in big old London and would have come and shown my support, but I checked the dates but we are out of the country that week... Will be rooting for you from afar.
