The Year of the Tiger!
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holidays! I was able to relax for a little bit, catch up on some reading that I sorely miss doing and reassess where I am and where I’m heading in my career.
So…what does this next year look like for me? For one, a lot of travel! I’ve been asked to teach workshops at Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai! I leave at the end of February and will be in Dubai the first week of March. I will be there with the big heavy hittin’ honchos: Zack Arias, David Hobby, etc etc. But I am especially excited to meet Joey L. That kid really blows my mind as far as how young he is, how inspired he is and how bomb his work is. After Dubai, I am showing some photographs at the SNAP! Exhibition in Orlando, Florida from May 20th to the 23rd. And NYC in between all the rest! That’s the first six months of the year. I can only imagine that the next six months will be just as busy. But what will I be doing when I’m in LA besides shooting? Doing more SEMINARS!!
Speaking of Seminars…. I had alot of lovely people write me recently with a review of what they thought of the previous seminar I held back in November. They even sent me pictures they took at the seminar! So I thought I would showcase a couple of them!
We have the next 6 months of seminars blocked out at Smashbox Studios here in West Hollywood, where we held the last one. The first one is February 6 and 7th. April 4th and 5th is the next one. And June 5th and 6th is the 3rd one this year. If we get a good enough turnout on these 3, I plan on doing them once a month here in LA for the remainder of the year. The weekend long workshop is limited to 10, to ensure everyone gets enough attention from me, and ample enough time with the models to shoot.
Problogger.com asks: Do You Have Any Blogging New Years Resolutions for 2010? I AM going to TRY to write more posts on my blog for 2010. And I’m also thinking of offering a private mentorship program. I’m just trying to figure out if I can actually find the time to do all this. In between prepping and shooting, promoting and marketing, teaching and reviewing, I dare say I have little time left for my private life. But you know, I wouldn’t change any of this for the world. Being busy is a sign of success and I’m definitely living my dream!! 2010 is the year of the Tiger which is my Chinese Astrological sign. David (my husband) and I have been singing a little song around the house lately. Sung to the tune of “The Eye of the Tiger” , we’re singing The YEAR of the Tiger. I feel good about this year! I’ll have loads to report to you and events to take you to. You’ll be right there with me, in spirit and in words and hopefully some of you can come out and attend one of my seminars because it truly is just like one big happy family!! Not only do you walk away a better fashion shooter, you do end up having a good time! And if you live in Dubai, either come to my workshops or drop by to say HI. Same with Orlando! If you live nearby, you gotta’ come by!!
At any rate, I wish you all a hugely successful 2010, full of love, happiness and prosperity!! Rock on and Stay Tuned! xoxo
