“Alright 2011, let’s do this.”

Working on my own this semester will be the prequel to after I graduate. Teaching myself to keep my head in the game, even while balancing multiple jobs and working as a portrait photographer, will be difficult. I have been on a mental hiatus for quite a while and I think I am finally ready to check back in and get some serious work done. I bought a new camera, a backdrop kit for my at home studio, and will be purchasing lights very soon.

I have not yet attended the iImage exhibit in Portsmouth, but have researched some of the artists there and have stumbled upon some greatness and inspiration.

I have a huge list of ideas for shoots. I’m ready. Let’s go.
