Portraits from the Career Fair at Liberty High School

2017 Liberty HS Career Fair

I went to the Liberty High School Career fair and took a couple of snaps. It was a good experience and I really enjoy taking the time to talk to the kids about OPTIONS. Some of the kids said that they wanted to become photographers and they were interested in what it was like to be one. I could only say that I loved it.

There are some really good kids at liberty and I totally enjoyed helping them out.

All of the pictures of the day are here.

Back to Blogging

So I’m here at WPPI and I’m going through the classes and everything. So I’m sitting in a session with Christine Tremoulet and she is sharing something very powerful about stories. She states that the necessity of sharing stories is crucial. On the top of one of those aha/ I’m doing it all wrong moments comes an epiphany (actually several) in that there is a serious need to share stories. So that is something that I intend to start doing in some of these blog posts. 

I have blogged seriously before and I had built up quite a following and I stopped because some serious life changes happened. However it was kind of a therapy for me. I think that doing it again as a business therapy is a good idea. We all lose who we are a little if we allow ourselves and put on a persona. In doing so our clients lose who they are dealing with and become out of touch with us and our brand.

Now I am known to pen some pretty lengthy tomes which can be overwhelming and I think in the beginning I will just put it all on there and sort it out later. For now though I will use my blog to communicate what I would like to do and to add some business therapy for myself. I honestly don’t know how much about photography I’m going to talk about, because my life is a journey and I’m not the same person I was 5 years ago. I’ve learned so much and I think that if you read my blog that you will learn quite a bit as well.

Looking forward to seeing you in the next post. Some posts will have pictures and some won’t. It will depend on how I’m feeling.

WPPI Platform Class Christine Tremoulet

Christine Tremoulet who penned WordPress which this part of my blog is based on speaks about the importance of telling the story behind the shot. As the Sexiness Avenger she explains that we are wired to put a story to it. Our brains crave stories and in the absence of a storyline we will make one up. This means that it is important to fill in the blanks as much as possible and with images pretty much all the time.

Liberty High School Band Graduates of 2016

These kids are awesome. They come and learn and then they move on to greener pastures. It is amazing how fast the time goes. I like working with them chronicling their experience to go on like little ducklings into the great new yonder. I wish them all the best in their future endeavors.

Spring Jazz Concert

This was an awesome concert out with the Liberty Jazz Band. This group of kids is really talented and I love working with them. There were some honored and I’m sad to see some the seniors go. It seems over time you don’t really realize that they have to move on to greener pastures. So it is kind of strange but awesome as well. The possibilities of their lives is inspiring as they go on to do bigger and better things. It connects you to the process of creating dreams and realizing the possible. I wish all of you the best of luck.

Website is back up and running

You know what they say. If you’re going to mess with your setup create a back-up. Ah be we are too futile to do such things. We must go boldly into the night so here we are hours later and things look fine but everything is still not in its place. Sometimes you must learn the hard way in order to truly figure stuff out. You learn a lot but invariably do not write down notes on the experience so ultimately much of what you learned is lost and you keep the instituting a groundhog day situation.

So here we go back at it round 2.
