California Dreamin' (v1.5)

Just sent from a photographer at the workshop last year: Joel Brown. The only one sporting a large format camera. Gets huge kudos from me.

Have I mentioned that I love my job? And that I love the artists I work with?

Sorry for the lack of posts, folks. I can't really say that I've been soooo busy I haven't had time to make a new entry, but rather finding suitable material to post/talk about has been lacking. Which is kind of silly, since a good friend of mine just set up a blog not too long ago and I have been advocating that you make a blog your own. It doesn't have to be substantial, or profound - it just has to be yours, and you post what you want.

So here I am.

I'm leaving in a few days to go to the Palm Springs Photo Festival. This will be my second year attending as a workshop model. I will be working for Greg Gorman's Fine Art Nude workshop, and I'm sure it will be as great as last year. I'm looking forward to seeing familiar faces and friends, but most of all, I'm looking forward to getting out of snowy Minnesota. Last night and this morning we had yet another substantial snowfall - 8 inches - and it's still snowing. Ugh. I'm so done with the snow and cold. Done done done.

I'm making lots of progress on my needed essentials for my long working vacation to France over the summer. I'm doing a great job at emptying out my pocketbook! But the expenses are necessary. New computer (I'm finally and officially a Mac user), new glasses and Rx sunglasses, new clothes, new camera (don't get terribly excited - its just a point and shoot, albeit an awesome one), and a bunch of incidentals. Shop til I drop.

On another note, I have a shoot today with Matthew Scherfenberg. Always love working with Matt. Let's just hope I can make it out of the driveway.
