So.... For anyone who really knows me.... I have spent countless... Or more hours working for free, for everyone... EVERYONE, and trying to learn all that I can from everyone that I come into contact with, regarding photography, and cinematography, I have had awesome influences such as people like Scott Jarvie, Cole Webley, Derek Pueblo, and countless other people and teachers. All of these people I have learned a ton about lighting, lenses, etc. I have taken every class that they offer wherever I go, and read every book I can on the subject. After all this... after shooting so many peoples pictures/films, I have finally been able to establish myself so that I can make money, and now even a living doing what I LOVE!!!!!!!! I am living my dreams, and its only getting better.
This summer I have had sooo many awesome opportunities, all paid, and they come so often, that I even have the choice of who I get to work with, and it only continues to get better.
This week I had the opportunity to work for ancestry.com/familylink. They hired me out to shoot product shots of these portraits that they are starting to sell.
Also, during the same week I had the chance to DP/Edit two commercials for Orabrush.com. They were simple web commercials, but still a fun/unique learning experience. I love so much what I am doing, I love the people I get to work with. And I am blown away by what I get to experience and learn with each new project that I get to work with, and the opportunities
those open for me.
