Hello…

For those of you living in Qatar, I hope you enjoyed your Eid break. I had a stay-cation this year, and Doha is lovely and peaceful with only half the population :)

Now it’s back to work and the countdown to the end of the year begins. To scare you just a little, did you realise we only have 10 weekends left until we say goodbye to 2013? Time flies in the desert!

New Portrait Sessions…

If you’re thinking about having family portraits done in time for Christmas gifts {and if you weren’t thinking about it, I’ve just given you a good idea ;) } then that only leaves us 8 weekends. But to allow time for printing and shipping then to be safe you should arrange a session before the end of November…which leaves only 6 weekends available…not accounting for any bad weather {I can often lose a day or two in November due to the shamal winds}…yikes! Tick Tock indeed :)

I’ve been busy developing new portrait sessions and packages and to celebrate I’m offering a 15% discount on all session fees booked before the end of this month, for sessions held before the end of the year. Please get in touch with me first to arrange a date.

Upcoming Courses…

In other news, I’m planning to teach a Lightroom 101 course on a weekday morning starting in November. This is an alternative to Photoshop, and will be the only post-production course I teach this year. I’ll also teach a Digital Photography 101 on a weekday evening starting in November, and this will be the final photography course this year. I’ll announce the dates soon so please make sure you check my Facebook page and your email.

On top of that I’ll definitely do some workshops before the end of the year. I'd like to teach some night shooting and perhaps a fireworks workshop on National Day {18 December}.

Upcoming Events…

On November 9 the American Women’s Association are holding their Annual Holiday Bazaar at Grand Hyatt from 12 – 8pm, so pop that one in your diary. It’s a great opportunity to pick up some gifts {if you’re not arranging a family portrait of course!}, and to discover some of the boutique businesses hidden around Doha. I’ll be there so please pop by and say ‘hi’.

Bigger Plans…

My big plan in the pipeline is to organise a photography tour for the first half of next year. I’d like to go to Socotra or Vietnam…or both! Please let me know if this interests you so I can be sure about this idea. 

I have a couple of other ideas floating around {such as writing more on my Blog} but as I’ve just scared myself about how little time is left between now and the end of the year I may have to be a little realistic!

As always, if you no longer want to be on my mailing list kindly let me know and I’ll remove you. 

Regards,

Lydia
