Hey New World,
I know my times have been sooo off. My schedule has been picking up, recently. My apologies. I have been horrible with my social networking skills.
So, first, I wanted to tell you about upcoming events. I have to cancel a few events I had planned for New York, due to some scheduling conflicts. I will be, for sure, in New York for November 23, for a class for MshopNYC. They have a “How to Become a Fashion Stylist” class, which to me, is very interesting.
On December 7th, the Bobbi Boss America’s Next Top Stylist competition will be held at the Washington Convention Center. This is definitely an event to see, trust me! I loved every bit of it! Here is the press release from my friend Alee, of DynamicPR:
“Who will be the 2014 BOBBI BOSS® America’s Next Top Stylist? Find out on Dec. 7 at the Washington Convention Center, in Washington, D.C., during the 23rd Annual Golden Scissors Awards – HairGames 2014.
The finalists for the 2014 BOBBI BOSS® America’s Next Top Stylist are some of the most talented and creative hairstylists in the country. They are: Shivonne J — Houston, Texas; Cocca Mane — New York City, NY; Richard Grant of Brenton Lee Salon and Studio — Pasadena, Calif.; and Tarina Akbari — Atlanta, Ga. Who will current BOBBI BOSS® America’s Next Top Stylist winner Travis Douglas of Columbia, SC, pass the title to? You have to be there to find out!”
So, as you know, I recently did a shoot, and the images were awesome. Mainly because I did not use my own camera. People, please learn from my mistakes! I left my camera battery in the house. How horrible was that. My friend, Leah Jones of LLJ Photography, had her Canon. I will say that I am a “Nikon Girl”, and will be fo’ life! I used her Canon and I am shocked at the images. I’m not switching teams! I am not sure if I gave my opinion on this previously, but Canon’s are great for portrait, and Nikon’s are excellent for scenery. Anyway, I am drumming up support for one of my latest ventures. WTTG Fox 5has a segment called “Allison Seymour’s Fab 5 Pics”. The first week she did this venture, a local photographer was selected. I thought to myself, “Damn, his business is through the roof, now!” So I thought to myself, “Hey, why not try?!” and I did. I uploaded 2 images to Instagram, with the hashtag “Fab5pics”. So, if you are feeling froggy, stop by and leave me some love.
