I think it would only be appropriate to start this post off by picking up where I last left off. The week of the of my last Blog post. I discussed briefly about a jam packed week of photo opportunities and went more in detail on 1 of the 4........Read More
It was less then a week out from my first ever live photo event and I still hadn’t gone out and bought the proper gear to even shoot it. My two friends started an event promotion company in January called Second World Collective. They asked if I would do a free show for them to get experience and to help them cut costs.

I managed to sneak away during my lunch break the Thursday before the show.Read More
