It is with great humility that I offer this last giveaway. I am in the continual process of improving my craft, and by no means do I consider myself a master photographer. I don’t consider myself to be in any position to teach or hold a “workshop”, and I doubt I ever will. It’s just not my style. There are so many talented photographers out there “selling” their time to hungry amateurs, and trust me, I have been to a couple of amazing workshops. In all honesty though, I gained SO much more just from sharing and talking with other attendee’s!
In my journey, I have studied and I have shot. And then I shot some more. I scour the net and photography books, and I study the old masters. And then I shoot some more.
I have not had a mentor, or anyone to sit down with me and explain the technical side of things, or the business side of photography. I have had to learn some hard lessons. In a recent interview, I was asked “What advice would you give a photographer just starting out?” Ummm…how much time do you have?? LOL There is SO much that I have to share! However, I have the most amazing and supportive friends and family that have literally cheered me on to keep going…to keep persevering when I felt like all my efforts were futile. I would not be where I am today without their love, encouragement, and prayers.
Well, I want to be your cheerleader. I want to share what I have learned this past 5 years. I want to help someone avoid the same mistakes I made. I want to help someone find their own voice in this over saturated market.
I don’t know IF anyone will even want to receive what I want to share, but hey, I know that there is at least ONE person out there that could use a little inspiration and a little boost in the direction of their dreams.
This giveaway is not meant to “promote” my business, or to get you to “like” my business page. It’s meant to draw out someone who would TRULY appreciate what I have to give. So, to enter, leave a comment below sharing a little bit about where you are on your journey. The winner will be RANDOMLY chosen electronically on Monday the 28th of February at 5p.m. PST.
THIS is what you will win!!!!
