AUSTERITY MY ARSE YOU GREEDY GITS.
As you’re reading this we will have returned home to spend Christmas with our families. As always your support over the last year means everything to us. The following we had over the summer, out in India, and the support of all the fans getting up through the early hours to watch us on tour in India has been amazing.
We’ve played some good cricket recently and we will take all that we have learnt from the last year into the year ahead. As we start 2013 we have a tough One Day Series in India followed by a tour to New Zealand before returning for a big summer of cricket back home. It’s going to be a year not to be missed.
On behalf of the team I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and we all hope to see you in the New Year.
After a year of meeting and photographing great people and familes it makes me really think about the cost of all the companies that are going to take me to new highs.
My business is something I am passionate about and am in total control of, I produce the website, love it or loath it, I do all the advertising, be it free or at a cost, but it is my decision.
This last few months I have had so many companies contacting me to advertise or use them as a SEO company it would have wiped out my entire profit for 2012 and a lot more, and I had a great year.
I think what really upsets me is a telephone contact is made, the initial banter is read out, talking about what a wonderful precence I have on the net, but they know jack shit about my business, those people should be sacked straight away, brain cells NONE. They do no advanced work on your business, or have no idea even what your business is about but spout on about getting you onto page one of Goggle, NEWS FOR YOU GUYS “I am already there”.
So where do we go from here, I would like to ask all those who think they can sell me space or get my website into outastalla advertising, check out my credentials first and stop making a Muppet out of you and your company.
2013 I will not be spending a penny on advertising my books are full I have two new photographers starting in the new year and my production people have been put on alert. My Business generates the advertising much more than you can, word of mouth and repeat business fills my books, and I do not want to share the profit with a beligerent person trying desperatly to sell me something I do not need.
A photograph is something that reflects exactly what your eye actually see’s at the time, if you take that image and it comes out as what you saw, then that is a photograph.
If it is not, take time examine why and try again.
