So while we were out in Vegas, our good friend Patrick from Still Motion had asked me to be a part of this video he was putting together. Cool. Absolutely. Not a problem. I can do that for you! So went over and hung out in his room and answered a few questions and there was Starbucks involved, so I was psyched. :) And then we went on about our merry way.
And then came the tweet. The tweet heard round the world. Well, my world at least.
Patrick tweeted that this video on “Success” would be premiering at the WPPI awards assembly (wait, really??) and featured interviews with six photographers and industry leaders Kevin Kubota, Jasmine Star, Jesh De Rox, Sarah Rhoads, Jessica Claire….and then me. :) Wait, me?? Really? Uhhh….are we just playing the world’s biggest game of “one of these things does not belong” here?! :) Because really just to be included in that group, even in just a tweet, I was shaking in my knee high boots.
Well I actually just got to see the video for the very first time (because we were still working on our talk during the awards assembly), and I have to tell you that I had tears in my eyes listening to how hard each of these people have worked to get where they are and how they each define success. And to be honest, I’m still kind of shaking in my knee high boots at the thought of being part of it.
So Patrick, thank you thank you thank you for including me in this. I don’t know how to ever thank you enough. And here I thought the Starbucks was the exciting part! :)
