I have been in chatting with a few new and old photogs on a few new concepts. I have posted some of their work lately. I am always interested in making some new themes happen. I am excited that I have slated some time to meet with some of the photogs who are coming into town. It is the hardest when you are trying to get schedules in sync. If you have a concept that is out of the box, please let me know. It would be even better if you are in the Southeast and we can figure out a way to make it happen. Time to work on the calendar!!
My birthday is this weekend or last weekend. I have been behind in my postings I must admit. I forget what day it is often! I have been able to celebrate it with some amazing friends. They always know how to cheer me up and make my day. Usually it happens with a very simple text about something that is going to happen or something that did happen. I used to get some great gifts from my fans, that was nice, I won’t lie. I took down my wish list as that always is changing. I thought of doing an Amazon one but, I know that would land me doing pages and pages of items.
I have also been asked to become a celebrity driver with an online game. I was hesitant to be included but, I think that I am going to take the plunge if they will still have me. I will post some more information as I get it. Should be an interesting adventure.
I have not been ignoring anyone I promise. I have been busy with dealing with certain situations. Some of them are and will remain out of my control. That is one thing that is very hard to deal with when you are trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel but, all you seem to find is the ten-foot-deep pothole that you land in. I get aggravated when you are working towards a solution but, the person that you might think that you are trying to help just honestly doesn’t want it or need it. If you are going to be into the drama, bringing everyone into it, and making it a focal point of the environment, then you need to figure yourself out quick as no one is going to want to be around all the negativity.
I find this common in the modeling industry. There are the new models who think that they know everything and everyone. They want to be at the top of their game but, usually after year two or three, they find themselves lumped in with the masses. It is sad to think that some people don’t ask for advice even it is would help them. I guess that is going back to a guy who would be asking for directions?? You don’t see that happen very often.
When you have the time, make the time. You have the moments that will pass you by. You will have the moments that you can treasure for a lifetime. If you have the moment to be able to capture those, that just makes those moments epic. Stop apologizing for the past. Make the most of the future. So then you have to make the time. I have found that people never take the time to say Thank you. They might live in the moment but, the moment is over as soon as it begins. The clock is ticking…what memories will you make with your time?
I have had some great shoots and some not to great ones. Some people click and others do not. I find that this is the time when I look back and just have to cut my losses on the ones who I did not click with. It is Spring Cleaning at its best.
I also have had some emails from a few who just can’t recall the conversation.. and so that brings me to the forgotten. The one thing that makes me wonder about this business again. I have some great connections that I really treasure. The people who have been there for me through thick and thin. You have to earn that rapport. And those will never be forgotten.
