+/- January 2017

 Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

For those who are new, +/- is my monthly series where I recap the previous month in Positives and Negatives.

+ I told myself that I would spend more time in New York this year and I am already on my second trip. I'm currently sitting in I Hate Blonde's office in her Soho apartment as I type this. My first trip was to photograph a fashion trade show at the Javits Center. It was long days but I met some cool people while I was here.

+ I did a few shoots with Rachel and a few of my photos got reposted by Nylon Magazine and Nakid Magazine! It's nice when publications recognize my work.

+ I had two talks at Johnson and Wales University about branding and social media marketing. It was great to have such a great reception from all the students. They really seemed interested in what advice I had to offer.

- The state of this country...

+ But on the other hand, it was great to see so many people at protests and taking action. It truly gives me hope.

+ I've been reading every day this month. It's such a good feeling finishing books. I really should sign up for an Audible account. 

+ Making plans for new content, both photography and written. I really want to have new work driven by me and not just hired work. ABS! Always be shooting!

+/- I've been feeling really down lately about everything happening around me so I am trying to do a regular gratitude practice over at the What I Love Wednesday tag.

Tell me how your January was in the comments!
