Well…it’s been a week since the PPWV convention ( Professional Photographers Of WV ) and I made it thru!
After my lecture on “the Art of Art” where I talked about the adventures of creating, producing, and selling fine art- I got to talk to the other speakers there who I’m sure will have a profound influence on my journey from here on out!
I did come away with two things I didn’t expect thowever….The first was a Kodak Gallery Award for my work titled “Falling To Pieces”
The second was being elected to the Board of the PPWV.
This was huge for me- it means a show of faith from the PPWV membership that I can contribute and give something meaningful back to them in return for that trust.
It means a lot that I have been able to speak, have my work accepted and recognized by my peers, and be able to serve a higher purpose to the craft that means so much to me.
Photography- It’s never really been a choice for me as much as a lifestyle.
the fact that I’ve made a career out of it, still amazes me somedays. ….
