Life goes incredibly quick. The last update on this site was Christmas day 2012. Since then I’ve left work full time, started to travel the world instead and been to Thailand and Burma. The adventure which is my life is only beginning, so don’t expect many updates on here at all. Musings on travelling can be found over at www.nofilmleft.com.
Thanks for all the support, but don’t worry about me. I’m alive – I’m just getting away from time wastes like Twitter and casual blogging to focus on experiencing life.
Firstly, Merry Christmas. I know I already wished everyone it earlier in the week, but it makes sense to spread the goodwill cheer again. Anyway, more excitingly and on topic, my client Musion appeared in the Christmas Sunday Times edition.
In the Culture a two page story discussed the potential of holographic projection and included a photo I took during the demo. This is incredible and while there’s no byline, to appear in a national newspaper, even through a client’s work, is very exciting.
Anyway, here’s to 2013.
I can hear you say it already, “where the hell have you been Marco?” OK, maybe not. If anyone’s wondered why I haven’t updated this site as much as I used to, it’s because I’ve been pouring all my energy into my new travel site revealed at the start of December.
It’s going really well. I’m happy with the progress I’ve made, both with the support friends and family have given me, as well as the slow, but steady increases in traffic from Twitter, Facebook and directly.
I’m sticking to the tone I think is best – longer form features with advice and narrative thrown together, as well as traditional content. I’m trying my very hardest to avoid ‘top ten things to see in xxx’ articles because frankly, there are enough of those and they’re lazy writing.
Anyway, if this is all news to you, feel free to visit No Film Left and let me know your thoughts.
Oh, and of course, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2013. I’ll have very exciting news to share soon.
You might’ve wondered what I’ve been up to the past couple months (I gave a hint something magical was on its way). It’s no secret I’m a fan of travel and the more I do it, the more I fall in love with the culture around it, the writing on display and the people creating the stories. So, I decided I wanted to become part of that community and when I decide something like that, it generally means creating a website.
Thus, I present, No Film Left.
That name might confuse you. It might make no sense. In reality, a website’s name isn’t really a concern for me. If anything, something non-stereotypical gets people clicking.
Anyway, for a bit of background, it’s good to read the About Page. Over the coming months you’ll see all sorts of content go up while this site remains a professional portfolio and Faces of London handles the photography.
It is only possible through your support I can do these things, so if you have the time, following on Twitter (@NoFilmLeft) and liking the Facebook page would be really appreciated. Comments and subscriptions via RSS are equally welcome.
Phew, a month since my last update (a review of On The Road). I’m busy with a personal project I’ll be sharing soon, but I did manage to find the time for a couple weeks in Europe. I didn’t take much photography, just some shots around Milan. The set’s available on Flickr here.
