Career Week

Last week I had the pleasure of speaking to Mrs.Hettinger’s 4th grade class at the Mark Twain Elementary School during career week with the energy and excitement of these 4th graders – it was SO much fun I had to snap a few photos!!

Here is a link to the slideshow I showed highlighting a few images from recent weddings :: LINK

The actual presentation part was only about 5 minutes Рbut it was followed up by some amazing questions by these little smarties! My favorite part of this was the excitement and the questions from the kids РI talked about when I started my business (2001) and where I went to school (The Art Institute) what I focus on photographing (people).  They asked questions like Рif I were to start over and do it again, what would I do differently (go to business school on top of art school), Are there other specialties of photography besides photographing people? (heck yes! Commercial, Editorial, Landscape, Fashion, Architecure РSO many!) Do I get to travel for work? (for SURE! A great perk of the job!) What advice I would have for people wanting to start in this profession? (Go to college! Learn as much as you can, work hard and be kind to everyone you meet!)
