Teamwork, Sisterhood & Dedication are some of the words that come to mind when you think of a sorority. Last month I had the opportunity to work with the young ladies of the Delta Sigma Theta  sorority at KSU. I was asked to shoot and design a banner promoting a program for the school called rehabilitation. This presented 2 challenges for me, one of which was coming up with an idea for the shoot. The 2nd being the overall layout for the design because  the young ladies had no idea of how they wanted to convey the message. Eventually we decided on an idea of  placing themselves in an asylum awaiting rehabilitation. Of course I don’t have access to an asylum, so the layout had to be drafted in photo shop.

The original draft came off too light, warm and fuzzy so  I went back reworked the it and created a more dark theme. The ladies were thrilled with the layout and immediately sent it to print. A few weeks later I was informed that the event was a success, largely due to the fact that the banner had received massive attention for its creative appeal. I enjoyed working with the young ladies of Delta Sigma Theta and look forward to working with them again in the near future.

Recently I’ve been reworking the layout of my portfolio website. Not satisfied with my previous host, I decided to find another web client to better show off my talent. I stumbled across  an awesome site that allows more flexibility  and less code than my previous host. Although the skeleton of my site is complete and ready for launch there are still some bugs I’m trying to work out. I have also decided to  added my business to google maps to draw in more clientele. I was kind of skeptical at listing my information online at first, but the goal of marketing is to reach as many potential clients as possible. An judging from my analytic stats I have already begun to gain local traffic. I am always on the hunt for criticism about my work, so if you have the free time check out my site and let me know what you think.

Haute Lanta Fashion Week 2010 is in full effect. I kicked the evening off by attending a  rooftop cocktail party at the Glenn Hotel with Natasha Wicker of The City Socialite.(citysocialite.wordpress.com) The evening was filled with Designers,Photographers, Models and other professionals in the industry. The eclectic mix of people  and ambient sounds from the dj turned this cocktail party into an interesting evening of networking. To say the least if you were caught without your business card or representation of who you are, you were truly missing out on great opportunities to make serious contacts. I can’t wait to experience the rest of the this weeks events and will keep everyone informed on the happenings.  For more pics of the event head  over to the City Socialite (http://citysocialite.wordpress.com/).

Recently I had the opportunity to shoot with Ms. Tomika Thomas on behalf of The Fashionary. She was the winner for the month of August for The Fashionary’s monthly subscriber contest and was entitled to  a free photo shoot by yours truly.(TheFashionary.net)  We went on location in midtown  Atlanta in the middle of a bustling city during rush hour. I couldn’t have asked for a better scene in which sunlight was excellent  and a busy street led to some interesting shots.  Also on location was Natasha Wicker of the City Socialite handling make up,video and the swatting some annoying mosquitoes. The shoot was a success and I am looking forward to working with Tomika again on future projects involving her ThinkFashion  ThenStyle brand.
