One Thing Everyone Must Do

Good Morning New World,

dsc_0005I know it has been a while, and I do apologize. I am in the process of putting my life in a position where I can be back to being me. I realized that during the process of unemployment, you go through a process of redefining. It is very hard, to say the least. In the midst of unemployment, school bankruptcy, etc., we get clouded with moving forward and feel comfortable staying where we are. Wait a minute, you didn’t come here to read about my philosophy. Did you?! Probably not.

So, I will chat about something everyone needs to do. The African American Museum, in Washington DC, is finally built. The outside of the building, is a really eccentric design, but it’s what’s inside that really counts. “The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. It was established by Act of Congress in 2003, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight the contributions of African Americans. To date, the museum has collected more than 36,000 artifacts. Nearly 100,000 individuals have become charter members of the museum. When the NMAAHC opens on September 24, 2016, it will be the 19th and newest museum of the Smithsonian Institution.” (nmaahc.si.edu, 2016) It has seven floor of history and, from my understanding, the floors goes from the darkest hours, on the bottom floors, to the lighter times. Unfortunately, due to my past injury, I could not view the entire museum. However, I will show you what I did see.

TTYL!
And Enjoy

The Next Phase

Good Afternoon New World,

_DSC4266So I apologize for being distant (again). My life, these past few weeks have taken so many loops and turns, I really don’t know what to do. It has made me feel kinda withdrawn from society.

Well, I start off by saying that, and it may not be true for most photographers, but the one’s I know in the nations capitol, often hold a “regular job”, aside from their art, to pay the bills. I am no different. I have found that DC, really doesn’t have a market for me. With that being said, I have unfortunately parted ways with my current contract. I have worked there for a few years, and have grown to like and admire the people on my job. I wished it was longer, but as the saying goes, one door closes and another opens. I just have to practice patience, which is a huge skill for me. This, I strongly believe, was a learning lesson.

The next change was that I took my photography up a level. I was able to connect with one of the most vicious stylist, Andre Wallace II, also known as VooDoo Boi. His unique style is very impressive. I can’t wait to show it off. The team that I was able to work with, was amazing, in the alley. Khalilah is unbelievable with her makeup skills and Atochi is magnificent with hair! Oh, and I can’t forget the star of the shoot, Roshelle. She is absolutely amazing. That is all I’m going to say!

So, with the time that I have, I want to do some reflecting, and planning, for my future. I want to plan for an upcoming shoot. I want to try to blog more. I need to contact, and keep in constant contact, with my business connects. So, with that being stated, I won’t make any specific promises, on me blogging more, and being seen more, socially. Once again, these past few weeks, are making me reevaluate and restructure myself. This is a work in progress, and I have nothing but time to progress.

TTYL!
