Lately things have been absolutely crazy.
Good crazy, but still crazy. Two magazines are featuring yours truly of Remedy Photography
this month ("Think Big USA" and "Iniquity Magazine")--so that is exciting. My financial situation has balanced itself out a little, which is a relief because let's face it, not having food in the house is a crumb-bum way to live. However, now, Cherri (my dog), her vet bills are paid off and we have her on proper medication -- so thankfully there's no looming debt to pay off anymore.
I'm actually raising a little money for a fundraiser for the Canadian Liver Foundation for another charity fashion show (my second one in a month -- but the first one was raising money for cancer). My fashion photography has been featured via two clothing lines: Artifice Clothing
and VespaWAR Clothing
. Hopefully there will be a third in there shortly.
A few weeks ago, Cassia Sparkle
(Toronto's Original Mermaid), a professional alt model returned to my studio for the second time and it was really lovely to see her.
With her, came Kym Krane, also an alt model, who traveled all the way from Montreal just to be in my studio! I managed to get so many great photos, that I've slowly but surely been turning into my own little pieces of art.
The week before that, a woman flew in from Calgary to be in my studio as well. To be honest, when I started this whole photography thing, I never thought I would have people flying in or making long distance trips to get in front of my lens. After the past year, so much has happened, I'm just completely blown away. This year alone I've been in nine magazines when before this year, I had never even been mentioned in a newspaper for -anything- in my life. I was even in the news a couple of times relating to my photography. It genuinely freaks me out a little. I still consider myself an amateur and am learning every day, how to do new things with my camera and with photoshop. I feel like they mistaken me for someone who actually knows what they're doing. ~laughs~ I'm hoping I'm not the only artist out there who feels this way.
