Recap on my life...

SO.... first off I've wanted to apologize for not updating my blog for so long....
I've had more than a few asking me as to '....what's up with that???!!?' sort of questions.

Well my life thus far has been extremely busy and exciting! The gallery opening was a true success and well appreciated by peers and strangers alike.  I've gotten a full-time position as an assistant to a very successful and established fashion photographer here in Toronto, Dan Lim (  Have continuing to meet great people who are presenting me with some promising projects to work on throughout the year to which I'm very excited about!!! and looking forward to.

I've been using all of my free time to continue to work on my future in photography.  I'm exploring many possibilities and keeping my reach wide and open.  I am still going to explore fashion and commercial photography, but I know as myself I need to work on some personal projects whenever I am able to.  I'm sure it's like that for all artists in all mediums.  We just can't help it :)  It's what keeps us sane and functional....I guess you could say.

I've been very fortunate to have met with a lovely lady who's level of creativity and vision has refreshed and inspired me to get my own creative juices flowing.  We're looking forward to working together on some future projects to which I hope we can do a gallery show with as well.  Show it to the public and see where it leads to.  It's going to be a work in progress, but the thoughts and feelings that are already being placed upon are well worth the time and effort.  Patience is a virtue.

I don't want to state just yet as to what we have planned....although I'm itching to! But it's best to present it in pieces as we work on it....teasers of sorts ;)  I promise it's going to be well worth the wait.  I will try to keep this blog more updated as I continue to move further in my journey into becoming a photographer.  Right now I'm still in the start of my path who will continue to grow and hone her skills.  It's truly intimidating at times when you see such great work already out there and you think to yourself 'How am I going to make it?.... how am I to know what my style is?.... am I unique?.... is my work unique?..... where do I start?'  These questions fly through my head on a regular basis.  It's normal to question yourself, but don't let them overwhelm you and, in turn, drown you.  Stay focused, stay strong and ... may sound weird.... stay alert.  Look for opportunities and helping hands.  Look forward to meeting people and don't shy away from new friendships.  You just never know where it may lead to ...

Lately I've been feeling .... I guess you could call it a photographer's block (?)  Well after my brunch yesterday with that very same lovely lady the block has lifted and I am very much looking forward to a inspiration filled year.  I've decided to work on two books.  One for the commercial world....nice clean and what Toronto seeks and another for my own personal work.  It's the only way I know I can find balance for myself and not be stifled.

On that note I shall leave you with some shots I had taken in a fashion workshop I was assisting in.  It was very quickly put together with no actual setup or ideas.  Spur of the moment that I was asked to do and prep for the models and their agents.

Till next time....
