I could probably fill a pool with the amount of blood, sweat and tears I put into 2012. It has by far been the most hardworking, hectic, yet awe-inspiring year of my life. I was lucky enough to accomplish all goals I had set out for myself and more. From leaving my dayjob of 8 years and being pressed in national publications to little things like opening a business bank account, all were milestones to me.
Today officially marks the second year of my photography career. Looking back, I’ve come such a long way and there are too many people to thank for having a hand in the success I’ve earned in that short amount of time. Nevertheless I must highlight 8 people, whether it be a constant inspiration or simply being a friend; these people are a big reason I’ve accomplished such goals in 2012.
• Josh Eskridge - Photography
• Lana Wilson - Photography
• Scooter Ray - Fashion Design, Hair, Makeup
• Micah Severo Ruelas - Hair, Makeup
• Joey Goldsmith - Photography
• Missy Brown - Photography
• Antonio Pantoja - Cinematography
• Chris Klapheke - Outdoor Photo Gear
For all those that have given me a “Like” on Facebook or commented on an image, whether it be good or bad, I can’t thank you enough. Having a constant source of opinion and feedback is really invaluable. I’m proud of both my success and failures. Pure determination for success and the constant yearn for a challenge is what I’ve always stood by and will continue to do so in 2013. I'm supremely confident in where I am and where the future path leads. I’ve met so many great people and I'm truly blessed. My goals for 2013 are very strong and will require a lot of time and fortitude, but I’m up for the challenge and here to succeed. This is a very exciting time for myself and a few creative peers around me. Ideas are abound and I predict magical things over the course of the pending months.
The black stain that was left from my years starving in the music business has been washed clean and I can finally say, I believe hard work, pays off.
Happy Holidays and Cheers to 2013.
