Spent the evening with Shivering Snivels’ partners,
So I’ve been developing Shivering Snivels in many ways, one of which was through workshops hosted by the philanthropic production company, Imaginese. While most members pay dues, I worked out an arrangement with them for a membership in exchange for event photography! These amazing and inspiring artists devote their time to teaching and mentoring public school students in the Los Angles, when they are not developing their own impressive productions.
This week they hosted a filmmaker’s Expo where they previewed their writers humorous and poignant work for industry artists. A night filled with laughter and great constructive critiques!
And it was my pleasure to photograph the fun-filled event.
So beside the degree in filmmaking I’m about to receive, and the children’s book I’m publishing in Fall 2016, I have a (not so) secret dream of working for National Geographic.
Out of all my artistic pursuits, I consider this closest to my “Hobby”
There is no pressure to build a sustainable career, or brand. Maybe one day I’ll be paid by researchers or non-profit organizations, but so long as I have a camera I will continue to study and “capture” this amazing planet.
Sadly, having a camera is not always assured, lol. So, the whole idea is a work in progress.
But, even a working artist needs to find a hobby that relaxes them, that gives them the sense of accomplishment — without the stress of achievement…
…And a chance to be a little cheeky!
As you can tell by the URL, I started this blog back when I was a photographer. And while I have been lately focused with more literal narratives, I will always love to take pictures. Thanks to the Shivering Snivels campaign and my Shadow Backers, I was able to invest in a smart phone recently (finally!).
So you will all be happy to know I will be picking up photography not just as employment anymore, but as a hobby too!
you will see portfolio work like this ~
Or you may see silly things like these :}
