WOW! What a wonderful week we’ve had! 11,520 minutes since last week’s BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. It’s been an amazing response from everyone, thank you.
Welcome to all our new followers who have joined us this week. For our followers who have jumped across the branches of our growing business - thanks for staying aboard. You will probably notice that the branches will cross over at times - we will occasionally “cross pollenate” as it were.
A couple of minor domain and website hosting problems were encountered, otherwise we got through pretty much unscathed. A few emails seem to have possibly gone astray, so if you’ve sent us a message and you’re still waiting for a reply from us, send us another one to make sure – or better still (while the gremlins are possibly still lurking) send us a message via Facebook. We don’t ever ignore our emails, so if we haven’t responded, blame the gremlins! We probably didn’t get it in the first place. External customer support seems to be very lacking with some companies despite our best efforts to help fix the issues. Frustrating to the max!
The exposure and feedback on our rebranding and launching Quarrie Aerial Photography has been great! With the fresh modern look and the new business branch we are highly motivated to smash our goals out of the park and to achieve higher standards for our clients.
In the past week we’ve been out and about on a few road trips. The Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival is a fascinating spectacular. Having the opportunity to photograph the Grand Parade for the first time was a whole lot of fun. With so many weird, wonderful and wacky characters enjoying themselves during the festival, it sure was a technicolour experience! Joining the Steampunk Sydney crew for lunch in Katoomba at the Avalon restaurant and culminating in the Peasants Ball at The Carrington Hotel where we grooved the night away to the jazzy tunes of Pugsley Buzzard and The Subterraneans with Neill Duncan was a brilliant day all round.
Sunday was a more laid back day with a wonderful brunch and antique browsing at the Victory Theatre Antique Centre & Cafe in Blackheath and then a spot of culture. Calling into a photographic exhibition at the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre followed by a visit to the Nolan on Lovell gallery in Katoomba on our way back down to the flatlands. Viewing the works of artistic masters is a great opportunity to learn and appreciate the diversity of creativity.
The RPA (remote pilot aircraft – aka “drone” in layman’s terms) got a work out. Up in the Blue Mountains again this week doing some aerial mapping and short videos. Once the footage gets processed and approved we will release some of the end results and share it on our QAP Facebook page. We’d love for you all to have a gander and feel free to give us some feedback. We love sharing what we do with our followers.
We’re really ramping things up this year, including a dedicated QPG BLOG (yep, this one!) where we will be sharing more details on what we are doing, special trips or events, exciting technology… pretty much anything we think you’ll find useful and interesting. As usual, we love your input, so we’re extending an invitation to all our followers – if you have a topic, technique, tale or other tid-bit you’d like us to talk about or shed some light on, drop us a line and we will explore writing a blog post just for you!
The QPG BLOG will cover all three branches of the business, so pretty much any subject is on the cards.
We look forward to continuing our journey with you all this year. Onwards and upwards!
