My experience at RAW Boston can only be described as incredible! The people who organize these events every month really and truly understand what it is to be a starving artist. I’m very thankful and blessed to have had the opportunity to be apart of this group.
I met quite a few amazing creatives, handed out tons of my business cards and sold a couple of my first ever photo prints! I premiered my Black and White Series at this event which was pretty exciting. I've never had an opportunity like this before. Showing my work to a different audience and expose my name to potential clients. Feeling truly blessed about this experience!
In some ways I was totally nervous to talk to new people and expose myself as an artist but I wasn't going to let this opportunity pass me by. Fear is only a reaction to something that you are completely capable of handling. This is what I remind myself when I'm faced with things that make me nervous.
My support team consisted of my partner and my parents who drove from Connecticut for my showcase. Also, two of my amazing models came to show their support. I'm lucky to know such supportive people! About an hour before the fashion show, I was asked to come do a video interview which you can find at the bottom of this post. It was probably my first time being interviewed as an artist which for me is a big deal. I've accomplished something rather awesome, right. Real artists get interviewed!!
Overall, I had a great night. Below is a interview video with yours truly. Enjoy!
