Up and running 2!

My website (John Wood Photography) is also now live. We were able to launch it on the same day as the exhibition opened so the timing was rather handy!

I've had a lot of positive feedback from site visitors which has been really encouraging and there was a steady stream of hits when the launch was announced to everyone. Thanks folks!

It's been a while in the planning and set up but I feel that it has definitely been worth the wait. I'm really pleased with the look and feel of it and will be adding to it over the coming weeks and months - so check back regularly for updates.

Up and running

Well the launch of the exhibition went brilliantly with over 40 people attending during the opening night. It was really good to see around 14 of my friends make the effort and come along to see it all set up in it's glory! Thanks to all of you - you know who you are.

We got some really good coverage in the Watford Observer with a great write up - the Arts correspondent even bought a couple of my greetings cards that I'd had produced.

The exhibition really does look good and a fantastic job has been done by all involved. Hopefully it will inspire us to keep the momentum up and do something like this again in the not too distant future and hopefully on an even bigger scale.

Just over a day to go!

Well, the exhibition has been fast approaching and it's felt like a lot of my spare time has been getting to grips with cutting mounts and framing photographs, sending out invites to friends and family and sorting out my greetings cards.

Finally they're all ready to go and tomorrow (Sunday) is set up day. I'm really looking forward to seeing my prints on display at the exhibition and also to welcoming everyone to the preview night on Monday.

For a while on Friday I didn't think the greetings cards were going to make it - the printer had a bit of a nightmare but at 8pm I received delivery of 8 of my 10 designs. The remaining two will have to be printed on Monday - hopefully!

I spent a lot of Friday night and Saturday packing them up with their matching envelopes and sliding them into their protective cellophane pouches but I'm really pleased with the final result.

Roll on Monday!
