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 – but 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 – I 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 – if 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 – SO 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!)
