“If You Fail to Plan, You Plan to Fail”
A quote told to me by my lecturer during my Uni days. This quote had always been something that I held onto closely to my heart and in my life, from my studies to personal life and running of my entrepreneur business.
Likewise, for my photography and travel goals 2010, I went through days of thinking and feeling, linking my brain and heart together, to plan for my photography and travel goals 2010 and I really wanted to achieve all of them since a very difficult and tiring 2009.
My Travel Goals
(1) Short trips (3D2N / 4D3N)
– Angkor Wat, Siem Reap
– Mt Bromo
(2) Medium Trips (5-7 days)
– Shanghai ~ Expo 2010
– Brisbane ~ University of Queensland Centennial Celebrations, July 2010
(3) Long Trips (8-14 days)
– Yunnan, Shangri-La in Autumn 2010
I would really like to visit all these destinations that I listed, although costs and time/business schedule might be an issue. I would work very hard at making all of them come true for me by hard work and saving lots & also finding travel companions that are photography passionate too.
My Photography goals
– Capture locations in Singapore before they will be lost to commercialisation e.g. Queenstown, Punggol fields, Kampung Lorong Buangkok, National Stadium,
– Joining/Organising more photography trips such as Snap Snap November Outing 2009.
– Making more new photographer friends via social media networking
– Mentoring my juniors in their National Youth Achievement Award in their hobby/interest project (photography)
– Giving back to society via photography when the opportunities arises
– Expanding and learning studio portrait photography thus moving into Corporate Shoot Photography
– Networking and achieving media accreditation through PR firms (hopefully)
– Building up portfolio & maintaining business accounts for events , sports and wedding photography
(3) Toys Buying
– I confess ……. I want to upgrade to …… Canon 7D or 2nd hand Canon 1d Mk 3 ? My Canon 30D had served me very well, however, it’s time for a model upgrade 🙂 ….. I need to move into sports action DSLR !
– Panasonic GF1 just tempted me tremendously, perfect compliment to my current DSLR setup and great street photography camera, a worthy consideration at a later stage in the year 2010.
