Coming to the end of a long and interesting week. My exhibition at Oxford Artweeks, coming to close today after a week, has been the most successful ever - 5 commissions (4 very large prints and cheques cashed) plus one other, 6 other prints sold, a couple of portrait interests and a healthy profit in cash terms. I had quite a few people seeking me out having either been on the web-site, or that have remembered me from last Artweeks.
I've had confirmation that I will be writing a photography column for a quarterly Arts magazine, my first interviewee has confirmed and I should be meeting the photographer before the end of May, well in time for a copy date of July for the September issue.
Looks like I'll have more time to spend on things as (very) early retirement seems extremely likely.
But most curious was an approach by a gallery in New York that appears to be interested in representing me. Their email said that they have been watching me and have viewed my web-site before approaching me last night. This might be normal for other photographers, but it's the first time I've had an approach - so it will be interesting to see where it goes.
