Its still got some deets to be filled in but its getting there and it just feel so much more professional to say "here is our OFFICIAL site..."
Its definitely that busy time of year for our foundation so it felt good to get this started. We are especially excited that we can take pre-orders for this years derby shirts as well as sell general merchandise on the site so easily. As more starts happening at the site I will update here as well.
And one last exciting bit: our first year we had 3 applicants for our scholarships, and last year we had 5 applicants for scholarships...
this year we are reviewing 31 scholarships!
God is GOOD.

Look at everything. I think my advice to a young photographer is to really develop yourself as a person. To be a really great photographer, you have to have a point of view--something from yourself that will distinguish you from someone else. These days everyone is running around with the same camera, doing the same thing whereas in the past photographers had a greater range of cameras and films from which to develop their own vocabulary. So I think it doubly important now for a personal point of view, to have things that come from within. Also, I think for people interested in photography, the history of photography is so amazing. It's a wealth of material from which to learn.
