New Website

Over the next few weeks I will be working on a new website. I’m moving away from a Flash based website because they are not very search engine friendly and they are a bit limited in terms of what devices can view the site. Plus, Adobe has given up on Flash. This new site will be a portfolio and blog all rolled into one leveraging the power of WordPress.

The old Anoop Shah Photography website at www.anoopshah.com will be up while I transition over to the new blog/site at www.anoopshahphotography.com. I still don’t know if I’ll move the new site back to anoopshah.com. I may use that site for more personal work. That’s yet to be determined.

I’ll post updates  and thanks for following along.

Happy New Year

Happy new year to all my family, friends and clients. It feels weird to differentiate between those last two groups of people in my life since many of my clients have become wonderful friends.  2011 came and went by quickly. My son, now 18 months old, made sure I didn’t sit in one place too long.

Last year was an interesting year for me. My self-imposed hiatus from large jobs so I could spend quality time with my son ended and I was met with zero inquiries. A full year off and out of the ‘game’ was going to be more difficult to bounce back from than I had originally anticipated. I can say now that it was one of the best life decisions I’ve ever made. To be home and focus on the family, watch my son grow as I fed him breakfast every morning and read him stories every night, it was the most rewarding thing I’ve done. In hindsight however it probably wasn’t the best business decision as things were very slow when I opened my calendar during the summer.

Things starting picking up towards the end of the year which was a good sign for 2012. I have a couple of weddings on the calendar and plan on working with a few new photographers this year. Anoop Shah Photography will be expanding the services that it offers. We will be adding more corporate based services as our clients in that area expands and potentially adding more portrait options. We will be bringing up a new website and integrating the blog with it so we have one simple and elegant look.

Here’s to a new year, may your journeys be as rewarding as your destinations.
