Choices, choices

Bunch of foldersChoices, choicesThat's one big bunch of indecision!

As from today, I’m back at BCU (Birmingham City University for those who don’t know) and it’s already time to get cracking on the first project of the year. There is a definite split going on between fashion / studio and documentary / landscape. That is something I was dreading as I like doing all of those things.

Aghhhhh just not fair! Ok, get a grip Ian lets look at the pros and cons

Documentary / Landscape

Pros

  • Potentially less reliance on third parties
  • Just one project so that simplifies matters

Cons

  • Less dynamic than fashion
  • Less potential for making contacts and networking

Fashion / Studio

Pros

  • There is a total of 16 briefs which is a tremendous choice
  • Potential to make new clients
  • I enjoy using studio / flash equipment

Cons

  • Three shoots are required
  • There is zero budget for models etc (Maybe I could convince businesses to cover this as the shoot is for free?)

I will have to sleep on this but have a feeling that I will go with a documentary theme. I can still build into the shoot aspects that I both enjoy but at the same time find challenging.

Stay posted to see which direction I go and the steps I take!
