20150422-DSC_9098-EditJob Shadow20150422-DSC_9098-EditJob Shadow Today was a special day as I shared about my journey with photography, having passion for life and doing business in Nashville as part of a Hillsboro High School job shadow. I went through the life cycle of setting up headshots, post production and final output. My awesome friend Matthew A. Simms at AMP: Advocate Marketing & Print showed the process of craftsmanship, digital printing and excellence in the marketplace. Special thanks to students Mary Cayten Brakefield, David Feng and librarian Joyce Claassen (not pictured) and the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce for this opportunity to speak encouragement into our next generation of leaders for Nashville.
