A very famous and popular (photography) website contacted me today about featuring and interviewing me for my Human Canvas Blending In project!!!! I am so excited for this, and all the doors it may open!
It feels incredible to know that I am being recognized for my hard work and that potentially millions of people will get to see it! Stay tuned!
My photo seminar teacher just sent me this e-mail tonight, and I am literally almost in tears right now. I am so lucky to have him as an instructor. He’s changed my life and my views on photography and my work in so many positive ways. Thank you Seth, for these kind words and being in my life.
Oh my goodness,
I love my photo seminar teacher so much. It’s my first and only class on Fridays, so every morning when I walk to school from the subway station I cross paths with my instructor a block away from the photo building, and this morning right before I was going to cross the street he looked around like he didn’t know where he was then looked at me and said, “Come with me!”. I didn’t know if he was serious or not, but I followed him and we went into a little shop and he bought a drink and then said I could have any drink that I wanted. I got an ice tea and he got it for me! Then we continued to walk to school.
After class I talked to him about a new photo idea I had and he was all for it. We also talked about my ethnicity, and how I came to New York and he was so amazed by my “life story” and he just really loves my work and enthusiasm. Before I left he said he would love to go to lunch sometime to continue talking about my work and anything art related. I felt so honored. There is nothing better than knowing your instructor wants to get to know you and your art more and is excited for what you are going to be creating. This is going to be my best year yet, I can feel it.
Ahhhhh I got the internship! I am so excited to start working at CKS Studios. My interview was super chill, the interviewer himself just graduated from SVA not too long ago with a Masters in Fashion Photography and we talked about school for a bit, then he saw my portfolio and really liked it, and then he asked me why I love fashion photography and he really loved my response, then the next thing you know he is asking me when I would like to start!
I have always dreamed of having a job like this. Working on set of a big production with various talented people, and expanding horizons. I can’t wait to experience this! I’ll be doing so many things from: editing, assisting on set, running errands, and evening potentially meeting up with the celebrities or going to there homes to drop things off from past or future shoots! I am just so excited to start.
It gives me chills to think that at the moment I have best friends all over the world right now that are nowhere near me that truly love me and are still keeping in touch with me. From England, to NYC, and Oregon. It’s so great to know that I still have a special place in these people’s lives and that even though we are so far apart it’s like we’ve never left one another.
I did indeed. It was at the right moment, time, and place in my life. I couldn’t be happier about it.
Today I finally saw Adam for the first time in a little over two weeks.
We talked about a lot of things. How our spring breaks went, my RA app status, and most importantly our summer plans.
After doing a lot of planning I think it’s safe to say I will be going to England with him this summer! We’re thinking of also hitting: Ireland, Scotland and Belgium.
I also got awesome topshop socks from him as a belated birthday present which I completly adore.
knowing I can talk to you about practically anything, how you’re never afraid to tell it like it is, how you appreciate me for my talents, how you make special time for just US to hang out, how you can watch dumb videos on YouTube with me and laugh all the while. You are one of my most important friends and I’ll miss you so much when I leave.
