Like my photos? I now have my very own website! I will post all my zoo trips here and many more shots than I post on DA... www.kjrwildlifephotography.com Hello everyone! Hope you're having a good summer!
Wow its been a while since my last journal... going on 4 months! I can't believe how fast time is going this year, its kinda crazy and scary.
Since my last journal there have been several big events happen in my life, firstly I went off to work with the incredible Sarasota Dolphin Research Programme in Florida. They are based in the legendary Mote Marine Lab and I had such a fantastic time, working with wild dolphins has been a lifelong dream of mine so to get to work with such an amazing group of people in such a beautiful place was just incredible (although I went through SO MUCH suncream! The florida sun and my ginger complextion doesn't exactly go together!). I'm currently working on the data we collected in the field, hopefully I'll be able to get some funding to continue working with them but we'll see, its hard to get funding at the mo, money is tight everywhere
When I came back to the UK I went down south to look after my mum for two weeks, she had a major operation in May and afterwards she wasn't allowed to do anything but sit or lie down for months while she recovered. She's doing great though, she's recovered now and is doing everything for herself again which is such a relief. It was nice to get to spend such a long time with her, I've not got to do that in years. She also really helped me plan loads of things for my wedding which is taking place next summer! Not long now really so have to get everything booked and in place otherwise we'll be screwed. Its very strange thinking this time next year I'll be married and I'll have a new name, but strange in a good way!
After I came home from my parent's house, my partner and I got our keys for our first house which was extremely exciting but extremely stressfull at the same time. We had to clean and pack up my flat in St Andrews while at the same time go south and move all my partner's belongings out of his parent's house as they were selling it and downsizing. So yeah a very hectic, stressfull time but we did it and we were then in a box fort in our new house!
We then had to delay unpacking and decorating to go south to go to two friends weddings and sadly a funneral. We had a huge trip all around the south of england visiting people while we were there, one of the weddings was in london, we then went to Alton, the New Forest, another wedding in Shrewsberry and then Nottingham before home!
And once we were home, we got to decorating. We've done our bedroom, bathroom and the upstair's hall so far and I HATE painting so much! Hehe it doesn't help that the walls were painted horrid dark colours so we've had to do loads of coats to cover it up. Oh well its almost all done now, then we're going to take a break from it before tackling the downstairs XD
Hope everyone is well, I'm going to try to be online more (I know I've said that before!) so hopefully it won't be 4 more months before you hear from me!
Now to go tackle all those messages in my inbox... XDComissions - are now closed for the time being
I would just like to simultansously appologise to all the people who commissioned me before I went away from DA and thank them for being so lovely and patient with me all this time. Everyone who has ordered a commission and paid already will still get their picture, and to appologise for the massive wait, the four people who I have kept waiting can have one free character drawing from me to say sorry.
I am working on them as fast as I can! I've already finished the first one, and the remaining three are all sketched and scanned into my computer waiting to be lined and coloured. To draw List...
