James Neale Photography says "so long 2011, you have been great!"

2011 has been one hell of year, and before i go on to tell you all about it, i have to say that none of it would have been possible without the love and support from my beautiful wife. Emma puts up with me spending all my time working, and listens to me when i'm coming up with the next scheme or addition to the business plan, or at least pretends to be listening and nods accordingly. Also, thank you to my friends and family who continue to show their support and believe in me, in what ever i do. Without you guys none of it would be worth doing.

I came into 2011 with a plan, a plan on how, what and where i wanted my business to go. Three months in, that plan was in the bin because i had totally underestimated myself in what i could achieve if i put my mind to it. I have gone from primarily a wedding and portrait photographer to now offering a wide range of services. Some people have told me that i need to specialize in a certain area if i really want to make an impact, but that's not for me, I don't want to spend the rest of my days doing 50 weddings a year and 100 family portraits, the thing i love about being a photographer is that every day is different. I love pushing my photography to the next level, I love being set a challenge.

2011 has also been the beginning of my Photography Training Workshops. Photography training was something that i never thought about doing. Then i got approached to run some classes at a local high school and the rest is history, It has gone from just one workshop, to now running beginners guide workshops and wildlife photography workshops at two local zoo's. I have trained over 150 people this year, and look forward to working with more next year. 2012 will see the addition of Night Photography Workshops, as well as some more advanced classes so watch this space.

This year has seen me work with some amazing people. My brides and grooms who have all been fantastic, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I love being a part of their special day, i love capturing those memories that they will look back on for years to come. I even had the pleasure of being flown out to Gibraltar to photograph a wedding. My first International booking!

I have also been lucky enough to work with Jamie Lester, from the hit BBC program The Apprentice. Jamie got in touch when he needed some images for his new website. He is a top guy and having worked with him on a couple of projects now, I look forward to keeping in touch with him over the next year, I just want to wish him all the best in his new business Hous Properties

I have also had a great time working with Entrepreneur Country Magazine over the last few months. What a great time i have had photographing their seminars, mixing with some of the UK's top Business men and women, People like James Caan, Lloyd Dorfman, Lara Morgan, i have loved every minute of it. I have even had my first article published in the magazine, which is something i never expected to happen!!!

And something that i certainly never expected was to be launching my second photography business! iSnap Events was launched just a few months ago when I joined forces with Professional Photographer Richard Evans of Sox Photography to offer full event and onsite green screen photography. This has taken off quicker than i ever could of imagined, and we have already worked with some great people and businesses throughout Norfolk and have so many great opportunities already lined up for 2012. Its going to be an extremely busy and fun filled year for iSnap.

So 2012 is only a few hours away now, everyone is starting to make their new years resolutions. For me, all i am going to do is continue pushing myself towards my goals, achieve more than i ever thought possible, and enjoy every single minute of it!

Happy New Year everyone!
