Photography and More…Photography


It’s been some time since my last post, but that’s because I’ve had several back-to-back photography gigs over the past month. From food to music to nonprofit, I’ve gotten a good run for my money during the months of October and November!

Plus, I have an extremely exciting announcement coming up…but more on that later. 

After flying home from California and the Send Silence Packing Tour, I slept for a few hours and then drove upstate for a friend’s birthday party and potluck. After that it was back down to the city for dim sum with another dear friend, then a long gig with the Food Network. I was delighted to be the studio photography for Kelsey’s Essentials: Season 3. Working 14-hour days was interesting, but the lovely host, my old bosses, and most of the staff was great. As was the food. Ah, the food…I was not shy, let’s just put it that way.

Immediately following that was a gig with my very talented friend, an up-and-coming drummer. You can hear some of her music at

After editing Food Network photos for 10 days, I traveled down to D.C., met up with several friends, and then joined the folks at Active Minds for their 8th National Conference. I did photography for the whole conference, but really enjoyed meeting all the employees I’d never gotten to meet before the California tour started. The students–who came from all over the country, and even Canada–were really smart students who are working to make a difference in the world of mental health.

All in all, I’ve had a busy month. After two Thanksgiving dinners and little time to rest, I feel a bit like resting, but I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon. Why? I have a big announcement coming. Big news, and yes, travel is involved. Why wouldn’t it be?

Enjoy some photos from the last few gigs, and you’ll be hearing from me soon.
