Hey everyone. It’s update time for ya. I have moved to Kansas City with high hopes of reaching NYC sometime next year. I will still be in Nashville about once a month as I continue to be associated with Southlight Salon.
It seems as if I have not had much of a chance to blog at all. This Winter has been filled with teaching and presentations. I spoke at Mystic 6 and a special thank you to Walter van Dusen for inviting me. I met some absolutely wonderful people and photographers. My eventual trek to NYC will now be filled with a lot of new friends.
From Mystic I journeyed south to San Antonio and the Digital Wedding Forum convention that piggybacks Imaging USA. Jeff Caplan, thank you so much for having me this year. Jeff is the one who gave me my first platform speaking class. Thank you. The DWF convention is crazy as they all are.
Next up is Afterdark Education in Vegas! They piggyback WPPI. Please go check out the Afterdark website if you are interested in a totally unique way of learning photography. It is geared towards the professional portrait photographer but wedding and commercial photographers can get a lot out of it also.
PROMO CODE!!! for $50 off registration use code “ARL” for Afterdark in Las Vegas. Feb 16-18th I can not say enough about how totally cool Afterdark is and how you learn. It is all hands on. Tons of equipment to play with and no photo egos. Everyone helps each other. The business ideas and marketing I have learned from Afterdark is helping me launch full force in a new city.
Ok? I hope to see you there.
A photo to make this interesting:
This was a recent shoot for Country Star, Crystal Hoyt. I am getting involved in the boudoir community and honing my style a bit.
So, where else have I been? The whole move was a big deal and took a lot of time and to be honest is still a headache. Our place is still for sale in Nashville. Can’t wait till I’m rid of it. Then at the first of the year my blog crashed. Totally. Thankfully it was backed up but it took a lot of phone calls to Go Daddy to get it up and running. It still is not exactly as it was but I’m just glad that the content for the most part is still here. For what it is worth, Go Daddy does have some amazing customer service. So hopefully I’m back up and running.
I’d love to hear some topics you would like me to post about. I have a hard time coming up with stuff sometimes. I’m not much of a typer, I’m more of a talker. 🙂 Speaking of. I am thinking about doing some SKYPE style training. Where we can have a camera on location with me and I can interact with you from one computer to the other.
How does that sound? No idea what to charge for this… I’m going to do a few for free just to get the kinks out and figure out what to do. Leave a comment and let me know what you think?
So for those of yo who have stuck with me, thank you.
Until next time.
