For years I’ve thought, man, wouldn’t it be cool to someday have my own photography business? A real website, logo, license, name and everything? Well, my dear readers, it dawned on me earlier this fall that this was probably one of the best time periods I was ever going to have to transform these dreams into reality. After weeks of work in front of my laptop, a couple hundred dollars, and some forms sent in to the State of Alaska, I have suddenly become a business owner! Acacia Rose Photography & Design is now up and running – check it out at http://www.acaciarosephotography.com! Squarespace is an awesome program I’ve found that really makes web design a lot easier than it otherwise would be.
After a few weeks of general inactivity in the business department, things are starting to take shape! Last Wednesday, I had a senior portrait photoshoot with the lovely Ms. Emerald, a senior at Steller Secondary School here in Anchorage. What a success it was! There were so many fantastic photos that I had to keep myself from getting carried away in the editing department. In addition, I’m designing a poster for the Halloween Candy Buyback at the dental office, collecting photos for a calendar and a patient slideshow. Finally, creative work! Hopefully I find some other seniors to photograph this year – I absolutely love it.
I haven’t been very good at updating recently, but things are exciting as usual! I just got one of 12 places in the Self Portraits Project, a global workshop that is only making one stop in the US, and it happens to be here. I can’t wait!
