End of Fall Quarter

This is my exhausted face. V-V

I have to wake up in less than 5 hours to go to Master Printing, last final of the quarter. I've already had Fashion, E-Folio (, and Thesis. After tomorrow is have winter break and a quarter off to shoot shoot shoot. And, of course, go to the ImagingUSA photo conference in Phoenix in January! I, along with others from the AiP chapter of the Student Photographic Society (SPS), am going as a student volunteer, which basically means I get to go for free because I'm working there. It'll be amazing and really educational. I need to work on my portfolio for the review I'm getting while I'm there.

I also need to work on getting an internship and matting my Master Printing final. The negatives aren't scanned yet, but here's something from Fashion.

Fashion Final - Stephani

Just got back from a shoot for my Fashion final with a model named Stephani ( ). She was so sweet! We shot in the church her father is a pastor at, so that was a pretty neat setting. The dress wasn't as ripped up as I would have liked, but I got some silhouettes that I'm really excited about and am currently loading into LightRoom.

Another thing I'm really excited about is my thesis. It's on the local music community and I shot the cover for the book this weekend (getting the title in the process)! It, in my opinion, looks amazing. I can't wait for it to be done!

All sorts of new and exciting things

Ta-da! I have created a blog for my website, This is the latest in the recent developments of my web presence.

I'm currently a student at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, nearing graduation, and learning a lot, especially in my Fashion class. All sorts of lighting demos (which are wonderful and have greatly expanded my knowledge of lighting) as well getting to work with models and learning how to direct. I love it. I also have Thesis, which is difficult. My thesis is on the local music community, something very close to my heart. I hope to get a job at a music magazine such as Alternative Press or Rolling Stone once I graduate. Shoot for the stars!
