The Photographer’s Socialite…..Could Be?!

Hello New World,

On my morning walk, I was blasting my cell phone music, and was thinking about what would be my next move. All of a sudden, a flashing idea, hit me. Should I change my current title?

Well, let me go into a brief description of my current title. I named my blog ” A Chic With A Camera”, because when I first started doing photography, the term “A dude with a camera”, was a derogatory term for a novice photographer. I know that the term is still used on Model Mayhem for those photographers that take low quality ass shots. Not trying to offend anyone, but you know who you are. At the time, I was a chic with a camera, and I had no real respect. So, once I got more into NAPP, and hanging more with my friend, Leah Jones, I wanted to change it into something decent. I am not saying that I have completely changed the term, but I have tried to get people to give it a second look.

Anyway, I am beginning to notice that I go to more social events, as oppose to doing my photography. This got me to thinking, what about being a socialite? That would seem fun, to be the it girl at all the parties. Then, another thought hit me. Wait, don’t you have to be rich?! Not necessarily so. Wikipedia defines it as “A socialite is a member of a social elite, or someone aspiring to be a member. According to Merriam-Webster the word was first used in 1928. A socialite participates in social activities and spends a significant amount of time entertaining and being entertained at fashionable events attended by others of similar standing.” Didn’t say anything about money. So, why not?!

So, I want to change things up, once I graduate from AI (Art Institute of Washington). Once I am close to graduating, I want to change from “A Chic With A Camera” to “The Photographer’s Socialite”. I will still be the same, but more social activities. I love it!

Everyone, let me know your thoughts.
