I can’t begin to tell you how glad last year is over! I had a lot of great experiences and created some cool images with some really great models, and a few editorial shoots that were really fun. Good models = good shoots.
Of course there is always some knucklehead trying to throw a monkey wrench into my day, but I am learning to not let the little things ( or small minded, self important people) bother me. THAT is my biggest challenge personally and professionally. This year some people and situations tested my wits and sanity in ways I never thought possible, but I squeaked through without throwing myself off the 6th Street Bridge. The only good thing to happen with all of the end of year stresses, is that I lost a few lbs. so that is always a bonus.
I ended up taking on too many shoots and am still struggling to get them all edited. Those you are used to getting a dozen photos back in a few days, thank you for your patience, it is noted and appreciated. Those who just whine and complain, well….there is a feeling for you too, but nothing I would write here.
I haven’t been able to finish any of my own projects because of all the other work I need(ed) to get done. So Hommeage is not dead, just 3/4 done. The Josh Kloss Project is still in the works, I have edited it down to over 300 images and that is no small task. Will have that completed shortly if everything goes as planned. There never really was a deadline since it is an ongoing project, but I want to get it out there, trust me. I believe people will be pleasantly surprised at what Josh and I have created.
My #Instagram is still semi-operational. Someone hacked my account so they had me change my password, etc., but have a ban on my account from posting any text or writing any comments or answering direct messages until this coming Friday. It makes me nuts that I cannot use my account 100% after some other fool, messed with it. I have no idea what happened, just that IG sent me a message saying my account was compromised. And there is no way possible to get in touch with anyone over there except for filling out a series of online forms and pull down boxes. Annoying is a nice word.
Anyway, here is to a happy and productive 2016!
