A Promise for the New Year

8 01 2010

Happy New Year!

Just a quick note and update. I am ashamed to see that my last update was a year ago when I launched the new site.  In the past year, in addition to the new site, I got myself Facebooked, and Tweeted.  Both have taken a bit more time that I thought.  Not sure which of these social medias I will stick with.  I’ve used FB more and just have my FB updates automatically ‘Tweeted’.

For me, 2009 was the year of Operation: Love Reunited.  I provided 41 free sessions to deploying or returning military service personnel and their families.  This represents the following:

  • Over 980 printed photos, in –
  • 41 Albums, created by –
  • Over 230 hours in sessions, selecting, processing, ordering, mounting and shipping photos, resulting in –
  • Over $20,500 of donated products & services

That is a lot of work and all of my free time to get all those albums out.  The families were patient and gracious as it took me to the holidays to get these albums out to the guys stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan.  I’ve created a slideshow to celebrate all the military families photographed this year.  You can view this by going to my website (www.jeffreyottphotography.com), and from the Flash site, choosing Slideshows and following that to the OpLove slideshow.

I am working to make this coming year better, with better photography, more customers and clients and a broader range of photographic experiences.  I am looking forward to blogging more, and even incorporating some video from the iPhone taken during different photo sessions.  It promises to be a good year!
