What a year 2K19 has been! I’ve managed to exceed my record number of air miles, I’ve seen new places, new countries, had new experiences, and taken some shots I’m certainly proud of! Let’s kick this off with the year in numbers: –
That’s the number of miles I’ve done in the air, give or take. It only accounts for airplanes, not helicopters 😉
That’s the number of miles covered worldwide in rental cars (and motorcycles)
That’s the number of hotel nights
That’s the number of border crossings worldwide
That’s the number of extra locations on my Lonely Planet International Coffee Hunt
That’s the number of nights under the Northern Lights
That’s the number of new KelbyOne classes
That’s the number of live presentations at Photoshop World, Las Vegas, and it’s also the number of books I’ve published!
I’ve loved my 2019, and I hope you have too! I’ve changed my approach to photography slightly in my marketing strategy, and pulled back from Instagram influencing in order to broaden the reach in other more consistent arenas, and it seems to be working out alright. The writing and education is taking more of a forefront, with the photography working in support of that. I’m proud to have had photographs purchased and featured with some awesome names this year including Boeing, Microsoft, Vente Privee, Yahoo, Discovery Channel, Conde Nast, Cambridge University Press, Qantas, Forbes, Viacom, Huawei, Telegraph Media, Orange, and a whole load of marketing, PR, graphics and media companies whose business I equally appreciate. I’d love to show you some of my favourite shots from the year, here they are: –
I’m hoping to get 2020 off to a flying start with all sorts of missions planned, as well as ideas for articles, and another book or two. If it all keeps going the way it has been it’s set to be a stellar year! Wishing you all the best for 2020!
