The Big Photo Show Returns to Los Angeles

I had a wonderful time visiting this expo last year. There was so much good information for anyone interested in photography as a hobby or as a career. A lot of the courses that were offered were about things I had already learned through the wonderful and talented Peggy Jones at Mira Costa College. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to have had the ability to study with her. Along with the educational and informative panels, there are amazing deals on camera equipment, wonderful information on new technologies, samples of new equipment that are available for purchase, as well as opportunities to expand one’s portfolio.
Enclosed is a link that I have been given to promote the event even further. The first 10 people to sign up with receive free admission:

If you enjoy photography for any reason, this would be a great way to spend the weekend. This Los Angeles event will be taking place Saturday and Sunday, May 17th and 18th.

Anticipating Spring

Enjoying college before it ends

For the past month I’ve been interning for Arts as a photographer for CSUSM’s Communications Department. I love having the opportunity to communicate with people and challenge myself to find creative ways to portray them on the fly, as well as creatively portray the beauty of the school. There’s one photo that I am assuming they will not use, but I just cant resist sharing, so here it is.

Time Sweeney Motivates and Drives

So proud to have such wonderful mentors that include this guy! Tim Sweeney is truly a one-of-a-kind and has such a way with words. His contributions to so many causes and his drive to create public awareness for organ donation is truly inspiring. Tim performs at The Merc. Part of the Old Town Temecula Community Theater in Southern California. to add laughter to the lives of others while spreading a message that is almost never heard elsewhere.
My photo of one of his performances has been featured in The Post along with the article about one of his MANY contribution to society.
