Today, I set foot in first photo printing studio.
Precursor, I've been scouted for a showcase here in Phoenix as a photographer - the first time anything like this has ever happened. I received an e-mail that I'd been noticed via Instagram, which I've re-read multiple times because I didn't believe it. I responded letting them know my interest, and submitted my formal application to the show. And here I am. A nervous and ecstatic insane individual.
Prior to this, I've never been asked to display my work, really anywhere. I've received notice from other creative souls who've said my work is good, and I've always taken that to heart. Those creatives are the first people I told when I found out about this opportunity. And now, now I need to display myself.
I don't think I've ever been as nervous as I have when I set foot inside that photo printing studio. And I did it, and now I'm ordering my prints.
This year I decided to take myself truly serious as a photographer. I invested in the camera I wanted and most importantly, I decided to invest in myself.
