Photography and life update

Lots of work, lots of life, and all with not too much news.

First off, let’s go with work.

I’m starting to rock the referral system they’ve finally trained us on. I’ll be out of the shoe store shortly (say that 5 times fast!) and able to finally move in with Raquel. I’m so excited.

Secondly, I’m doing a shit ton of work. I’m so exhausted, but what I’m doing is finally coming to fruition.

Really, I’ve been spinning my wheels since 2004, waiting for this moment to come to fruition. Waiting for my efforts to finally congeal into effects. Effects which will enable my life to come around into how I want it to be. How it should be.

All I need to do is to keep honoring my work and keep working with my honor.

Thirdly, I’m going to be writing an e-textbook for the iPad on fire photography. Raquel and my friends support me. Hell, some of them seem a little rabid to see it done. Still, it’ll be a project. I have to put together enough information to create a publication which can stand on its own. There’s a lot to cover, but I don’t know if it’ll be enough to flesh it out.

Regardless, I can create some sort of book. The information it will have will be relevant, potent, and expansive.

Finally, fourthly, I have continued editing the photos from the J Scordato shoot. Here are two more of them. I know the first isn’t on the blog, but deal with it.

Life, work, teaching, and art. This is me.

This weekend

What a weekend!

I just presented at a fantastic little salon. I anticipate they’ll become a great group. It’s going to sound bad, but I can’t wait to get referrals from them and see who they know. That will help my business out the most of all.

This was the first presentation I’ve done where I hooked my iPad up to a monitor to present. It showed me that it’s extraordinarily powerful; I just need to integrate more of my presentation into the slides. Currently, all I have in there is the concept of Aflac. My goal is to build individual slides for each policy and then the framework of the presentation to just insert whichever slides I need into.

Raquel and I finally made it to Blackett’s Ridge — our favorite trail in Sabino Canyon. It was a slog and my legs are feeling it today, but it was so amazingly worth it.

The photos I’m posting are from that hike.

The most exciting development right now is that I’m getting a lot of business going. I have 4 restaurants and a couple other stores right now somewhere in the process of getting Aflac. This will lead to Raquel and I being able to get our own place.

Gah!

Fighting to get this thing exported in a way I can move it to a new system! Upon success, I’ll be able to blog via my mobile devices — keep this damn thing current!

Revamping

Okay, this is my first blog entry on WordPress and a long overdue site update.

I really, really, really want to start updating my site regularly.  This is going to be a BIG year and I want to make sure that I document it!
