Life as a Photographer...

... is fun.  While you wait for my NYC pictures to be posted tomorrow, I just want to direct your attention to something VERY fun.  A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to head to Charlotte with two of my photographer lovies from the Wake Forest, NC area... April Sirit of Evoke Photography and Jo Liston of the Wake Forest Portrait Shoppe.  We attended Mike Colon and Bob Davis' "Master Your Craft" seminar.  It was a long day, but a great one!  We learned a TON and I am already seeing a difference in how I exist as a photographer.  While we did tons of learning, we also did tons of laughing.  You can get the scoop here at April's blog first... and then you can see what Mike Colon's people thought about it here.  As you can see, we are kind of a big deal now.  It is funny that this is how I was able to get on the blog of a photographer whose starting package price is $10,000.  

But seriously, we did come away from this seminar with so much great info.  One thing that I have heard over and over again is that the top wedding photographers all say that when they started out, what really launched their career was not advertisement, their website, etc.  It was that group of people that believed in the art that they created, and were committed to sharing the news about their creativity with others.  I want to thank YOU for being a part of my beginning as a photographer.  I am blown away by the support that I have received  from you.  It is my passion to help tell people's stories so that they might be able to relive and share that story with others.  Here's to the journey ahead of us!
