hey all, its been a while since i’ve written a post. that’s probably because i dont have very many new images to post nor is my life all that exciting at the moment. but it def. has started to pick up and i’m excited to see where it goes. i just helped a friend on sat. shoot a wedding. i’m not much of a wedding photographer, but any excuse to run around w/ a camera is quite intoxicating. it was an all day job and i had a great time. the bride and her fiancee were great. i pretty much assumed the ‘fly on the wall’ mentality while my friend jinna was in charge of the normal bureaucracy that has to do w/ weddings ie. family members telling u what to shoot, organizing and taking group shots, etc etc. i was in my own world, which is where i like to be when i shoot. i think i got some really good shots and now i have a wedding portfolio. though i would never want to do this type of photography full time.

as for other matters… i’ve recently applied to the santa fe workshops and just got word on friday that i got the position!!! i was very anxious about it, but am now thrilled to move on to the next chapter of my life. i applied for a course assistant position, but somehow managed to get a better position as the studio manager. i have to say, my good friend Hubert from grad school helped me out a lot w/ the application process and letter of rec. he worked there before and briefed me in on how to apply and what to expect. so i have to say a big thank you to him. thanks hubert!!! and paul lowe, my course director from grad school also put in another letter of rec. so thanks paul! the workshops are seasonal and the summer season (the one i will be working at) will last 10 weeks. a lot of the big name guys come and teach so i am hoping to learn a lot as well as make contacts. i leave the end of may/early june for santa fe. i cant wait as my life here in orange county has turned quite mundane.

    Hey Kevin. That’s great news about the Santa Fe workshops. I’m delighted for you. sure it’ll be a great experience. wish I could have applied too, but it wasn’t the right time really. anyway, well done!

    Congrats! I am relieved too… no Costco. Not that it would have it’s own delights but this seems much better suited. Maybe I should come for a workshop.
