Interning for Back on My Feet has been beyond rewarding. My experience there goes way beyond an addition to my resume. Everyday was a learning experience, everyday was a new challenge and most importantly everyday they trusted my abilities and creativity. After doing various photography work for them, I was rewarded with the ultimate; my photo in Times Square, NYC. Most photographers will never see this happen and here is my photo right there for thousands to see. The ad was promoting BoMF’s newest chapter opening in NYC. The digital billboard consisted of 2 slides with my photo on the second. Visit their website at backonmyfeet.org to learn more about this thriving non-profit!
Janise and I collaborated for her final photo project at Temple University. Her goal was to actually become the characters and then capture their personality in each photo. We spent hours picking outfits, finding locations and developing each characters unique traits. The result was a hit at the Tyler art gallery.
Under all the stress of finding a job and starting a business, I haven’t gotten a chance to really enjoy taking pictures just for me. So today, I took my little vintage bike on a ride to the park and brought my camera along. There was no pressure on getting the perfect shot, no stress on setting my camera just right and no reason to rush. I just enjoyed the weather and spend some quality time with my trusty Nikon.
I was feeling old school today so each picture has a different vintage effect.
A couple months ago I took pictures for Parsons student and friend Nancy Park. Now, the pictures are featured on Vogue Italia under Muuse! Muuse is a website that turns fashion grad student’s lines into produced and worn items.
