Moving pictures

Good day eh,
So I was referred to a very helpful website to assist me in presenting my photography with slideshows, and I love the work I can do there, so this is my first ever slideshow.
I really hope you enjoy all of it's majesty.

Second post! woowooo.

(A continuation of my trip)


Our next stop was San Diego, CA but on the way there we drove through Riverside, CA I took a picture of the city limits sign for my sister Kristi who has a missionary there.









I really enjoyed San Diego it is a very pretty city, and they have an awesome zoo, we spent an entire day at the zoo, seeing all sorts of animals. It was a very full day with lots of walking and wandering.
This is me in the jungle







So we decided to go elsewhere to eat lunch since the zoo food is usually more expensive.
My Dad and I had a restaurant that we had been wanting to go to ever since watching an episode of Diners Drive-ins and Dives ( on the food network with Guy Fieri). The restaurant is called Hodad's now this is one of the best burgers i have ever had just loaded with everything, best of all lots and lots of bacon!! So my Dad took a picture of me trying to take my first bite, it was very awesome!
After our awesome meal, we went back to the zoo to work off the food we had just eaten.

So that was day one in San Diego
pretty fun so far eh?

Back to school... to show my dad that i'm not a fool...



On march 25th 2010 my Dad and I signed up for Skip's Summer School. We have both decided to start our own individual photography businesses, so when we saw this post we decided it was something that we needed to go to ( my mom also pushed very much for us to go, realizing the potential it had).
This "summer School" was 16 of the worlds best photographers sharing their secrets of success, from marketing your business to how to be true to yourself as a photographer.
The classes were held at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas.
What a great time it was, to be able to sit in the same room as Scott Bourne, Dane Sanders, Yervant, Joe Buissink and Jasmine Star to name a few, I went into this ready to enjoy a good time and maybe learn some new techniques and see some great work, I came out with my head ready to explode from all the greatness i was able to take in. AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
yes it was that awesome!!!!!!

So this whole Blogging business is very new to me, and so far I am really enjoying it. I was a little scared at first getting started, but being able to write my thoughts and experiences down for all the interwebs to see, its very cool. I even have a follower already .. ( my sister..)

peek a boo to the water
So this is the start of my blogging!!  Here We GO!!

My next blog will contain the details of my trip, .. so stay tuned !
