2nd November 2016.
I'm taking my time, setting up my new adventure and it's not going to be easy and by any stretch am I going to rush it.
Planning is at the forefront of my thoughts right now and timing as well, is so important. Do I rush the letters out and capture the visitors to London for this Christmas holidays or wait? It's important to also check what is happening financially... Today the Bank of England will announce reports of their expectations of how the UK will perform over the next year. This is significant... Hardly photographic but for someone (like me) looking to establish a business based on tourism it will be. Right now the UK is experiencing a low rate against the dollar. An important factor as visitors especially from the USA, will be looking to come to our country on a lower budget than say last year. This not only applies to our friends from over the 'pond' but also to European tourists as sterling struggles against the Euro as well. So Tourism is at the forefront of my thoughts... Not withstanding obviously, any exportation opportunities for UK's other industries. The conundrums that we have!
So timing has to be right..
Let's think whats happening for the New Year festivities? In particular, we have our London New years Day Parade with a vast quantity of American students over taking part with their bands and dance troops. No doubt Mums and Dads will be over too! January could be a great time to start.
Photography Tours and Tuition offers you the visitor to London an opportunity to see my great city in a different light - Away from the usual Tourism routes, plus you get a chance to improve your Street and Architectural photography!
