Budding Business Needs help

Budding Business Needs help

Hey People. Today I created a GOFund me account to help with my life coach and photo business. I decided to put them together since the money will go to not only getting life coach certification but help in building a website for both my photo and consulting business. I know money is tight for all but I would appreciate any level of donation. This is going to be a on going process so there is no deadline.

thanks

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine’s Day

Well today is the day to celebrate love. Yes LOVE in all sense of the word. I know Valentine’s day is associated with getting busy, men making up for lack of gifts for about the past 9 months ( remember birthday and anniversary), singles lamenting over couples being all lovey dovey and the blah blah blah.

My version of Valentine’s day is to reaffirm the love you have for people who mean the most to you.  Maybe your mom and dad, best friends, co workers, and the one that you have given your heart to and the most important person….. YOURSELF!!!!

Novel Concept right?!?!?!?  We need to stop looking at Valentine’s day as something to be mad at if we are single. You see these couples with each other everyday. It only seems amplified on this day because of what we have been ingrained for this day to represent.

Remember this is a day to celebrate love.  Love yourself and send love to all who mean the most to you.

Racism Rears it Head.. again and Once again at an institute of higher learning

I was doing my daily reading across the web and came across an article about the Kappa Sigma Fraternity on Duke University’s campus was having a racially motivated party making fun of Asian and the Asian culture. It seems the brilliant brothers decided to send out and invitation Called Kappa Sigma Asia Prime literally filled with misspellings and a picture of Kim Jong Il from the Team America Movie.

Of course this happens in Black history month which every year comes through facing uproars from some white people complaining why they do not have a white history month and other derogatory comments.

I need to understand why in 2013 or in the new millennium why we are still dealing with this.  I need to know why people still think this is ok or cool to do.

Now, I cannot speak for all Caucasians just like I cannot speak for all African Americans but I have to wonder what does go through some white people’s minds. Every day, we learn more about our history. YES I SAID our history because it includes every human on this planet.  From what I learn from history, not only have other ethnic backgrounds did unspeakable things to other ethnicity but they have also done it to their own.

So why is there still a need to make fun of other ethnicities? Sometimes, I swear these things happen because they know it will cause  an uproar. They will get attention whether good or bad, they get attention. I know that is a terrible way to see it but you cannot tell me they did not think it through. People like to play stupid but we all know what the hell we are doing.

How did they expect Asian students to react? Oh those foolish white people and just brush it off? WHAT THE HELL?  Stop thinking people are going to continuously tolerate the bullshit that is spewed.

I would love to understand if this coming from  the fact that the Caucasian population is not as large as it used to be and all the bigots out there are getting the hole cards peeped and punched out.

I really want to know. Humans seems to think other humans are stupid.  As I have said in other posts, be upfront with your bigotry and ignorance. Let it wave high and loud. Do not hide behind organizations and then apologize. Be honest with the person that you are. Just do not be surprised if others do not want to deal with you or be in your company.

There will always be plenty of people who hate people for the color of their skin because its different. Those are limited and stifled in-duh-viduals.  

Do you want to be an In -DUH- vidual?  

I didn’t think so.

 

Mogul on the rise – Kenya Thomas

Though Mother nature has decided to send Nor’Easter Nemo my way, it did not take away from me doing a fabulous shoot with Kenya Thomas. I have worked with Kenya before taking pictures for her when she interviewed DAY 26. I have however never shot her.

One thing I do love about shooting people is just making them feel comfortable. Sometimes, a camera can be the most intimidating object. Its lens peering into your soul.

Kenya is a reporter and she has her own website called The SkinNYC. She showcases all happening around NYC from music to fashion.  Part of the reason for the shoot today was for her to get some promo stills for herself . She is truly a mogul in the making. The main reason for the shoot is because I have shot everyone she knows and it was no her turn.

 

I think they turned out well and she seems to be love em so I did my job.
