I've been pondering this over the past few days as I tweak my LinkedIn profile and finally ask my friends and colleagues for endorsements (not my favorite thing to do, but really, who does find it fun?). I like to give endorsements, but asking for them...well...eeek. But I'm doing it darn it. I want that profile to be complete! So, yes, I've been pondering what I'm proud of and here's what I've come up with:
I'm really proud when my creative ideas come to fruition the way I imagined. The above photo is from the Oct 2006 Long Beach Magazine, which is one of the issues I was proud to be a part of. I found the gorgeous young model Shane R Duffy (Tough, yes but someone had to do it) and he was the coolest ever to work with (and he was a vet who had been to Afghanistan). The photo was by Lauren Avila and make up by Aliesh Pierce. It was shot on location at Umberto's in Long Beach. We had a lot of fun and I would love the opportunity to work with them all again soon.
I'm also very proud when I can get a client (or a friend) to see themselves and their product and or in a fresh and expanded way...and well, I'm proud when I take decent photos like below!
