A New Project In The Pipeline...?


Something that I've always thoroughly enjoyed is photography. Over the past few years and since having a blog especially, I've come to realise just how much I love having it as a hobby of mine. At any given moment, I'll be looking for a chance to get snap-happy, because that's honestly when I'm in my element.

For those of you who may not know or if you just haven't been an avid reader of my blog for all that long, I actually study Business as part of my GCSE's at the moment. I started expanding my knowledge upon the subject in Year 9 and I'm now in Year 11, so you could say that I know what I'm talking about. Well, 90% of it at least!

During the majority of 2016, I'd been toying with the idea of starting up my own business. I thought that it was most likely going to be something that I'd look into one day, but I wasn't sure on what type of business it would be, how I was going to set it up or anything else like that. I didn't think it would ever be something that I'd consider creating right now when I'm still only a teenager.

So, having said all of that, you have probably guessed what the new project is going to be about...

Yep, you guessed it. I'm starting up my own photography print business!
This is honestly the most excited I've been for a project in a very long time. I know that I shouldn't let my age hold me back, but being only 15 with no job and still having to enrol in full time education doesn't exactly make my dreams that easy to achieve. However, this is something that I have started working on already and by the end of the Summer, it should hopefully all be ready to reveal.
I don't want to give too much away, but essentially, I'm going to be selling some of my photography on Etsy (just to start off with) and turning it into prints that all of you can buy. There will most likely be different sizes such as postcard, A4 and canvas, but the details haven't been decided yet, hence why the title of this post says 'in the pipeline', as it's all still very much a work in progress.
The photos will mainly be centred around nature, travelling and some of my favourite things that I want to share with people. I'm incredibly passionate about photography, which I've already mentioned and so not only do I want to share that passion, but I also want to share the things that mean something to me or that document the times that I travel around the world. I'll be selling prints of holiday destinations, anything I find captivating, places I've visited in the UK or even just images that can tell a story or hold beauty to them.
I'll be keeping all of you up to date on my Twitter and on my photography Instagram account (, but you probably won't hear that much about it on here until it's actually all sorted out. When I have names, release dates, an Etsy account sorted, prices, availability and other details like that, I'll be sure to let you all know!
Something else worth quickly adding is that I've done quite a few polls on Twitter asking for your thoughts and opinions on various different things to do with this project, so if you want to follow me on there (@simplyjadeyx) then you can have your say in the whole project!
Who knows, there could be more items available for purchase from me in the future, rather than just sticking to photography. We shall have to see, I guess.
Tell me your thoughts in the comments or on social media about all of this. I'm looking forward to hearing what all of you have to say!
It's something that I'm going to be working on for the next few months, as well as my GCSE's, so if I do go quite for a little while or take a step back from my blog, then you know why. Don't you worry though, I'll be coming back with a bang if I do!
Would you be interested in buying my photography prints? Which pictures are your favourite?
Lots of love always,
