Welcome to The Roving Photographer!
(If you’re confused, don’t worry: keep calm and carry on.)
Just a few days ago, this was my blog at brentpennington.com. And it still is, at least in the ways that count.
A few weeks back you may recall (if you’re one of my faithful readers) that I was talking about kicking the business aspects of my photography up a notch. I want to shoot portraits and weddings, take on clients, work my ass off, and everything else that goes with it. But I also love writing about my wildlife adventures, DIY projects, gear reviews, and my occasional conservation rants. Sadly, most prospective senior/bridal clients don’t care about that stuff, at least not in the context of booking a photographer who’ll make them look beautiful (and not like a perching eagle about to strike).
So after much consideration, I’ve broken the website in two. Over the next few weeks brentpennington.com will become my client-side site, an exclusive showcase for my portraiture & wedding business. On the say-so of my lovely marketing advisor, it’ll be softer, friendlier, easier, and less…um…masculine. In other words, it’ll be a better match for the sort of clients I’m looking to partner with.
Which is a good thing, because it leaves The Roving Photographer to become my man-cave of photography. This is where the fun stuff will hang out, a sort of combination garage/shed/workshop for muddy hiking boots, camo netting, and bear mace. Which is staying true to its roots, actually, since originally TRP was supposed to be an online listing of photographic destinations, compiled for photographers, by photographers. Unfortunately it never really took off, and the domain has been sitting dormant for over a year.
So welcome! I’ll be posting as usual and I hope that you’ll keep coming around.
And as always, if you have questions/comments, or just want to hassle me, the comments are open.
Technical Note – during the migration to the new domain name, all the embedded blog images had their links corrupted. I’m in the process of fixing them, but we’re talking about redirecting every photo across 300+ posts. It’ll take a while. Please be patient, especially with older posts, which may not be repaired for several weeks yet.
