The Candid Frame Interview

On Saturday, 4 of my fellow graduates to be, were interviewed by Ibarionex Perello for his podcast, The Candid Frame. It was an interesting day, because the power was out in the whole school, so there was this quiet that filled the space of a usually hustling and bustling place of students and designers. There was definitely something very special about that moment, wherein we were all given the opportunity to record some of our thoughts as emerging photographers. I'm bad at journaling or even taking photos just for the sake of memories, so to have this experience recorded with my friends was really something special. Check out the blog, and have a listen.

Speaking of graduation, I am going to be graduating in 2 weeks!! That is so crazy, and scary, but exciting as well. On the positive note, I am going to be graduating with 16 of some of the loveliest most talented group of people that I have had the pleasure of getting to know during my time in school. Our final show will be on August 14th at 7 p.m. Come and see some great work! And click on the image to see who all is in the show.

Dan Winters

I have not blogged in quite sometime, but I am back and finally feeling ready to share again. I have been bogged down with my own demons and the stress of graduation, but I am now feeling much more auspicious about the transition to come. Yesterday was a rather special day. Dan Winters came in to give us our own private lighting demo, for the 16 of us that will be graduating in just 2 weeks. I have never met him, or even seen what he looks like, and I have to say, he was much different than I expected. I don't really know what I expected, but definitely not the force that I was encountered with. Dan Winters is a man's man, he's the guy who knows the entire history of photography, the origin of other peoples work, and loves to create. He is definitely a force, and wields his will in a non-threatening, but sure fire way. He is large in stature and in spirit, but is also forthright and honest about his process, his lighting style, and his influences. He is not afraid to share and speak about himself or his work. He truly is an inspiration and someone to follow in the footsteps of. He has a new book at, which he was also in town promoting. Dan Winters we all love you, and thanks for coming in to share with us :)
