updated website

I updated my website this afternoon: . I simply added the "Fashionable Portraits" portfolio onto it. Really, most of these photos have been on my site in some form or another. They occupy an awkward middle ground. All of these shots were created for the purpose of being something or another, whether that something or another was for use in a models portfolio as head shots, or the hair stylist portfolio for their use or maybe just a school project. Often times they were created simply for my portfolio for an opportunity to play with light and a new model. I don't feel comfortable calling them fashion photography or portrait work. They are not quite personal work, nor are they strictly commercial work. The middle ground that they occupy is both less than more than their sums. Awkward.

Anyways. I have been going through the thousand or so photos I took while traveling cross country. Wow. It was a really amazing trip. Hopefully soon I will have the time to really look at them. Right now I am incredibly busy finding an apartment as well as a new job. Jobs are important, so are homes. I would like both please.

Alright, thanks Blogger for changing your menus. It only took me a few minutes to fumble through and re-discover how to post a blog.

Enough of that eh? Ok, I just got to New York! Tomorrow will be my first time in the city. For now I am staying in a suburb on Long Island. I am hoping to have an apartment by the 1st of June. Until then, I am posting everything from my really slow and under powered lap top. Editing truly is a task on this thing. We will see what I can make happen.

Drove cross country, took the scenic route for as much of it as I could afford. My route was San Diego to Tuscon, to Alamogorod NM, to Roswell NM, to Fort Worth TX to Austin TX to Lafyette LA to New Orleans LA to Baton Rouge LA to Memphis TN to Nashville TN and then it was a pretty crooked shot to NYC. I tried to avoid the interstates as much as possible except at the end when time finally really mattered. I will post more on this later.
