I am an extremely passionate free-lance writer and photographer in the DMV area (Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia). I am currently working on my dreams of pursuing a career in writing and photography. I am also working on building my own photography business. (www.flickr.com/PassionateFocus.MKO) At night I currently work as a cashier, promoter, and event planner for various night clubs in Washington, D.C.
I’m excited beyond words, because there are lots of changes and big things currently in the works. I’m finally doing it and really pursuing my dreams on a whole other level. I’m loving every minute of the journey and every step of the way. All this time I just needed someone to help invest and believe in my dreams and me as much as I believed in myself. It’s hard traveling a path you have never traveled before and it’s always great to have help along the way. Especially when the help is experts who can contribute pearls of wisdom to follow or heed.
Over the past few weeks I have been receiving alot of help with my dreams. My friend is helping me create and build a website for my photography business, while at the same time helping me follow and better understand the process for starting my own business. My photography business website is currently under construction, but here is the address to check it out when it’s finished:
I am also excited because I received a few new photography books as gifts. I’m excited and can’t wait to start reading each book. I look forward to learning all the tricks and new creative ways to improve on my photography. The books I received are as follows:
