I wrote my last exam today and it feels great! I can’t believe my two years of college are over already! It went by so quickly! I learned a lot during my two years at Humber and I had a lot of fun too. I went from being the scared high school graduate just starting college wondering, “What am I doing here?” while I was intimidated by other students who I considered better than me, to being much more confident in myself and my work. I’ve learned so much at Humber and not just photography stuff; I learned what I like to call ‘real world’ skills to that will help me in life no matter what I do.
Sometimes I tend to overthink things and I worry a little too much about my future, but so far everything seems to be falling into place. I’ve finished college and I have a job coming out! One of my goals in life is to travel so I consider this job to be fulfilling that goal as well, since my new job is Banff, Alberta working at Banff Photography! I’m so excited to go out of province and discover new places all while working in the photography industry as well! I couldn’t ask for a better fit for me!
Speaking of travel I’m also going on a photography trip with a couple of people from my program in about a month’s time. We’re going to New York City!! We’ll be going through the SOHO Photography Gallery and Impossible Project Gallery, visiting the International Centre of Photography, followed by a visit to the Museum of Modern Art, as well as going to the Guggenheim and spending an afternoon in Central Park. It’s going to be so exciting! I can’t wait to see all of these different places and to shoot some amazing photographs down there! So you’ll definitely have to stay posted, in a month’s time, to see my images from my trip to New York City!!
This picture was taken the night of our Portfolio Show at Twist Gallery. My two years at Humber wouldn’t have been the same without these two lovely ladies! I’m definitely going to miss them!
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.
