I have been trying to write this post for over a week now, and it has just not been coming.
The year has come to a close, and 2015 was an interesting year. It started off strong, but directionless. I did not have any goals set for the first half of the year. I vaguely knew I wanted to save money, lose weight and grow Pdexposures, but no real strategy as to how I would accomplish these tasks.
2015 was full of surprises and somehow I ended up going on road trips across the country to states I had never visited before and spend time in various comic book conventions. The big road trip was to Pensacola, Florida. This was to attend Pensacon, a nice little comic book convention. Made a lot of money that weekend, and met a lot of new friends. With Pensacon, I ran the prop photography area of the show.
It went great. Lots of happy customers and a ton of great memories for people. We setup a Tardis and sold gift sized photos with a simple setup of lights in front of it.
In May I had the opportunity to run my own photo-ops at a convention down in McAllen. It was a new experience for me, to setup my own studio and control every aspect of the workflow within the studio and make sure the celebs in the photo-ops area were taken care of and that the customers were happy.
In 2015, I actually attended 5 different cons. It was a blast.
Pdexposures had some great strides in 2015, but it was largely directionless after the stellar 2014 we had. I have a plan to grow it more in 2016 which I will get into in tomorrows post. We had a bunch of great shows, but we also went on hiatus a lot because of busy schedules and a lack of time to record.
The year kind of ended on a train wreck because of an expensive car accident. Fortunately I had a great emergency fund stored up. But now that is going to be a goal for 2016, to store up my emergency fund again.
On to 2016!
