What is your dream job?

Recently I was asked what my dream job is.  When you think about what your dream job is you need to consider certain criteria.  Does this job improve your quality of life?  Does it give you an avenue to express your talents?  Does it give you time to spend with the people you care about most?  Would you do it for free if you had to?  When I look at all these questions and thing about what I really want to do in life I would say that I already doing my dream job.  Are there areas I would like to grow and expand?  Absolutely!  One of my major goals in photography is to work for a supplement company and provide them with some amazing images to use to promote their work and more importantly to me their culture.  1st Phorm would be at the top of that list, just because I believe in what Andy his team are doing.  I would also love to shoot for a magazine, one of my idols is Per Bernal.  You don't know who that is?  Well go pick up almost any major fitness magazine and I am sure you have seen his work.

So what is your dream job?  What is the job that you wouldn't have to be paid to do?

Titone Midwest Muscle Contest / NPC Midwest

Well it is now official.  I am now the exclusive photographer and videoagrapher for NPC Midwest!!  When considering the next step in my photography journey it just felt right to join forces with one of the best promoters in the business.  I have been to numerous shows put on by Jack and have been super impressed each time.  His team is top notch, the venue and lighting are always flawless, and all of his shows are national qualifiers.  These were just a few reasons I decided to partner up with Jack.  

Check out NPCMIDWEST.com for all the shows he has lined up for 2016.  I am very excited to see everyone on stage next year and capture these moments for you!

Hard work does pay off

I know I have been away from blogging for a while now and I want to apologize for that.  One of my major goals in 2016 is to blog more and share my journey with you all.  So what have I been up to?  

Well first I have been taking time and focusing on myself, getting myself in better health mentally and physically.  I am proud to say that I have lost right at 80 pounds!!  I have a long way to go to reach my goal but I have never felt better.  It is amazing how your physical wellness can impact your mental wellness.  I have never been in a better spot in my life and so very thankful for that.  

Second, I have been busting my butt traveling all over the country networking and doing photo shoots.  I am constantly trying to grow my business and provide more services to help you the client build your brand.  That is my number 1 goal when I do a photo shoot.  How can I help this client build their brand in a unique and creative way.   In the past year I have continued to build my skill set, partnered with the Small Business Guru at http://ellisbenus.com/ to provide all your small business web needs.  I have also started offering videography services to all my clients.  Do you need a promo video done?  Commercial for your training business?  We can now provide that to you!

Lastly and one of the most exciting developments of the year is that I started working with Jack Titone at Titone Midwest Muscle Contest's.  What does this mean exactly?  I am now the exclusive photographer and videographer for all the NPC Midwest shows in 2016.  Jack and Ann have built an amazing team and I am honored to be a part of it.  Their shows are second to none!!

So that is what has been going on in my world.  I promise to keep you guys updated more and can't wait to see what 2016 brings!
