Today is the day. It's finally here. THE FIX.
I played around for a few days on whether to buy a ticket. Why? Because the closest location was 5 hrs away!!! For a one day conference to drive 10 hrs sounded crazy. I took the dive, bought the ticket and thought if nothing else the experience would be good to blog about.
I am so glad I did. For the past two years fully trying my hand at photography, it has been more than lonely. For the most part when I reached out to photographers I lost fingers along the way. I knew of no photographers in my area and knew nothing about the HUGE online community that I know of now. Today, for the first time I will get to meet hundreds of other photographers that are are in the same boat as me. Some at the front and some at my side but all here:
wanting to LEARN
Today I will meet those who have given me encouragement. Today I meet those who I do not know but struggle as I struggle. Today I learn how to better my art, my business and my love. Today I meet an amazing photographer: Jasmine Star. Even if I only get to say two words I know what they will be: THANK YOU!
If for nothing else for this opportunity to meet with other photographers but for so much more.
Today, I start a new and hope to make life long friends in the process.
