I sold a Pic!

 



So the portfolio show was last weekend. There was a great turn out. It was a really awesome feeling seeing my art big, framed and out there for all to see. I must say I got a little emotional…well for just a minute. {sniff}

Well since then, I have been trying to adjust to life without school. It is kind of funny that I¬†feel like I am trying to catch up on all my “normal” crazy life routine stuff. So much that it feels like is has been much longer than one week since it all finished. {sniff}

Anyways, one thing about all this is that I had some friends go to Art Station in Stone Mountain tonight, because they couldn’t make the big show last week. They told me they really enjoyed the art, but they also told me that I sold a piece of art. Que? What? I had no idea. My first official sell. Crazy! Somebody likes my stuff enough to buy it. Can’t believe it.

While I try to wrap my head around it I keep wondering what type of person would want to buy my piece. It is pretty cool. I’m not going to lie. Anyways. I could tell you about the pic, but I think you should just go and see for yourself. ( I will post which one later) The photo will be at Art Station till Oct 29th. I highly suggest you go take a trip to the station and visit. You won’t be¬†disappointed!

 

VICA! 1st Place!

OK. I know this is a delayed post, but better late than never right. A few weeks back at school, we had the VICA contest aka Skills USA. This is a yearly contest that is held at Gwinnett Technical College (for photography students). It is first at our school, then you go compete against another GA college, then if you win, that you go to Nationals.
Well anyways I am pleased to announce that I placed first in the first leg of the competition. Yeah!
Needless to say I was very surprised. Well I am glad that I placed and am eager to go to state and see what happens.
Here is my image below…can you guess the theme we had to shoot for?

Phoenix – Fashion Shoot


Yesterday I went to shoot my Fashion shot for my portrait class at Gwinnett Tech. Phoenix of Atlanta was my lovely model. We had the idea of beauty in a decaying place. Phoenix rocked it and was beautiful. My friend/classmate Jeremy was an awesome assistant and a big help.
I think the image turned out great. Can’t wait to shoot with Phoenix again.

How to Urban Explore!

Here is a video that I posted to my YouTube Channel. I had to make a “How To” video in my Multimedia class at Gwinnett Tech last quarter. I thought it would be fun to do it on one of the things I LOVE which is to go Urban Exploring. It is definitely campy, but hopefully it will at least make you smile.

Enjoy!

 

 

Liz aka OWEN!

On Saturday Night I was invited to come up to the Jungle by my friend, Liz. She is a drag king, mainly performing in Atlanta, name Owen. That night she was performing with other kings and queens at a farwell fundraiser for another drag queen, Alexandria Martin.

Well Liz invited me backstage so I could actually meet Phoenix, the subject of my photo story project. While I was waiting for Phoenix I decided to snap a few pics of Owen. She was performing Lady GaGa that night. Doesn’t she look great!

Wedding In Cali!

This past weekend I made a impromptu trip to sunny southern Cali. OK, well I had a least two weeks notice. My friend Jen, of almost 20 years, decided to marry her love Scott on his leave from the US Army. It was a gorgeous wedding with a gorgeous couple.
I told Jen that I was going to photograph their wedding. It was the least I could do. After all what are friends for? Well anyways I am giving you just a sneak peak for now, but hope to post some more soon.
I hit the ground running as soon as I got off the plane yesterday and have not had a full chance to go through them all. I hope to soon. I am sure Jen is anxious to see them as well.
