A couple days ago, something unbelievable happened. The photography program at my first college, Gwinnett Technical College, was being terminated. Not many details have been announced as to the reasoning behind the termination. Hard to believe that it has been almost 10 years since I started the program.
Looking back at it, I gained a lot from my time there. Gwinnett Tech’s photography program taught me more than just skills and knowledge in several fields of photography. It taught me business and marketing aspects. It taught me problem solving and critical thinking skills. It taught me to think outside of the box. It taught me how to keep pushing until I got the results I wanted. It created relationships, opportunities and a lifetime of memories. It taught me more than what I could ever explain. THAT is just the icing on the cake of what Gwinnett Tech’s photography program taught me.
If my photography has inspired you or affected you in any (hopefully positive way), please sign the petition to help keep it going. Give other students the opportunity that I had. Click the link below.
All the best,
To those who still keep up with my blog, my apologies on the large gaps between posts. It’s been a crazy ride. So, let’s recap the events since my last post.
I interned at ZuCot Gallery. I started and completed my Senior Exhibition. The best thing that happened last semester was I graduated Cum Laude from the University of North Georgia with my Bachelors of Science degree in Art Marketing.
With school being completed, the next step is to keep moving forward. I will continue to gain more knowledge about my craft. I will continue to create new things, whether it be for personal or commercial use. I will go and find the career that I have dreamed about for four years. Most of all, I will just keep moving forward.
Apologies for the lack of posting. Being a full time student and employee means very little time for anything unrelated to school or work. Any who, exciting things are happening. As of next semester, I will be working on my senior show proposal and sample work. (Wish me luck, haha) If all goes well on that front, this kid right here will be in her last semester of UNG! Excitement and fear all at once!
Now, that is a little bit away. Upcoming news for this semester. Finishing classes means a lot less stress. However, it also means I will have created my very own website (mostly from scratch). That’s pretty exciting. So, keep an eye out for the website. Until then..
With the newest ways to continue to broaden our horizons, the art department of North Georgia has helped its current and former students get a website out there. Digications are now becoming ways for the art majors of North Georgia College and State University put their work on display, their resumes and many more. Therefore, keep a lookout for my Digication updates along with my blog updates in the future.

After being out of photo school for almost a year, it’s time to re-vamp everything. And I mean everything. Reworking my style, my business cards, my website and blog. I’ve just been tired of the stuff I have had. I feel like it’s time for a new start, clean slate. So, on the to-do list:
-New business cards
-New website style
-Getting money set aside for equipment
-Going out and doing shoots.
Hopefully, I can do this in a reasonable amount of time. I really want to get back out there. Get back to doing what I love.
Wish me luck!
It’s a sad day in the world of acting.
One of the greats just passed away at the age of 85. If you don’t know what I mean or haven’t heard about it yet, then you should probably do some research. Tony Curtis, who is one of my favorite actors, passed away earlier today. He was in movies such as Some Like It Hot and Boeing, Boeing. If you haven’t seen these movies, gooooo watch them!

On September 11th, 2010, the graduating class of Gwinnett Technical’s Commercial Photography program will be living their dream. Our very first portfolio gallery will be on display for the world to see (well people in Georgia, at least) at Art Station.
