 Throwback in the history of BLACK IS BLACK

Hello, and welcome to a new blog post my cute little kitties.

It's me Nici again and today is a very special day because we have celebrated one year of Black Is Black ©® -  be an artist, the blog.

365 days are passing so fast and I cannot believe that it's already won the year of being online and have been present in the US market of being a professional photography business Magazine.



It was a stairway we had to take, foggy, and high, we did not what to expect but we made it.

It's incredible to see the reactions of the people when it comes up to photography and especially when they talk about Black Is Black, when they are posting, commenting, liking, and so many other stuff.

I will always remember the first time when I was sitting in the coffee and having my coffee cafe latte macchiato and there were two girls sitting at the bar and they were just looking around and someone noticed me and she came to my table and she said hey you are Nici right? I said yes what can I do for you? And she said yeah we are following your blog and we are following your stuff what you doing online and we also just bought a magazine. They were asking for having a selfie and for an autograph.

It's so nice to see the reactions online, we are blooming, we are growing, the community is getting bigger, on Google+ it's almost exploding. So many people are posting our stuff, or edits of photography taken by the biggest and best photographer in the world. We extended the contract with the company called name and with ETSY who are responsible for the homepage design and appearance. Great to see this as a result after one year, too.

1 year means also that there were a lot of difficulties to deal with for example to search for a new managing director and I had to face the sickness which I never expected to come up so I had to step down a little bit. I mean I just stepped on a little bit for being so active online in the communities but also when it comes up to Daily Business work.

I'm very happy to have such an incredible hard-working girl beside me who is Catie. I really have to say thank you so much to her and her support and what he's doing behind the scenes, for example she's going to shootings for me and she's doing photography if I don't feel strong enough to do that when she's replacing me in a really good way so thank you very much to her.

Also would like to say thank you so much to all the sponsors like Pioneer, Sony, Blogger of course, Canon, Black Canyon restaurants, and to the corporation's where we had a lot fun in doing those things I'd like to say thank you so much to all photographers, to all the bars, location studios, where we had the chance to do our shootings.

I also would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to the main apps where we are able to publish and to share our filter to edit pictures with you. So thank you very much to VSCO and Black Camera.

But most of all I'd like to say thank you so much to all of you who are reading the blog and to our checking in every day there are thousands of thousands of people going online every day on our website and checking if they're all the latest news about our community and world. Thanks to everyone on Instagram and Twitter, we are also doing a great job on SoundCloud and the comments and feedback coming from there is awesome to see, so thank you very much.

Thank you to Aly and Fila of course for great music.

For 2017 we will focus a little bit more on the activity to be more active in the world and the representation on Facebook. We will also do a daily photo and sound regarding music portfolio starting during the springtime of 2017. And flaky I guess once in a 6 month a blog marathon with posts every hour. We'll do most probably at the weekend, more news about it soon.

So thank you very much again to my team we are almost 30 people working hard everyday even during the weekend and thank you very much to all the people who love Black Is Black ©® BE AN ARTIST and those who made it what it is right now.

I hope to see you all in 2017 whether it is online are in the streets of New York or at any shooting studio in the world.

I wish you a wonderful and peaceful happy and merry Christmas and be safe, eat a lot, and enjoy the time with your family and with your beloved ones and I wish you all the best for 2017.

Be safe, be classy, be an artist.

Yours truly Nici, CEO of Black Is Black ©® BE AN ARTIST.
