west coast best coast, baby!

first of all, I graduated from Hallmark last Saturday, and what an event that was. after partying it up and packing my life away once more, i said some difficult goodbyes, got in my car Troy, and started heading west.
MA, CT, NY, PA, OH, IN, IL, WI, MN, SD, WY, MT, ID...
after three 14 hour drives and one six hour drive, i finally made it back to WASHINGTON, where my new Canon 5D mark II was waiting for me. (yessssss!) so even though my current address is still my blue Subaru Impreza (848-XTW), things are looking up. i ordered a computer (thanks, mom), got a business license, sent out and posted promo pieces, passed out a bunch of business cards, bought some magazines, and now have a few clients under my belt for the summer. today i am off to the best city on earth- Seattle, for some adventures. once i get my new macbook pro, you bet you'll see some photos asap. here's to real life, yeah?!
i miss all you east coasters. good luck in whatever you are doing my friends.

  1. Hi !!

    My name is Tom Shumard, Freelance Photographer living in N.E, Tennessee.. I also operate a Photography Forum on Line, that I wish to invite you to Join.. Membership is Totally Free, and many people here at Multiply, are also members of this Forum..

    This Forum Covers every Genre of Photography,, all in separate Rooms, according to your interests.. We have a Team of 12 Moderators, who are all Very enlightened , and talented in their assigned rooms.. While along with other members , these Moderators will help you along the way with any of your Photographic needs, and Questions.. Our Moderators are located throughout the World, and States, so normally always on board 24/ 7 to keep the Forum running smooth for your enjoyment !
    Please Read Moderators Bio’s and get to know our Talented Staff..

    We are also Very Unique in offering a Beginners Forum, where those just starting can learn through assignments, tutorials, and even often, one on one help with any Photo Questions..

    Some Of Our Rooms …

    Abstract / Digital / Art Photography
    Action, Photojournalism, and Hodgepodge
    Beginners Lounge.. Designed to Help those just getting started with Photography
    Birds / Black+ White / / Landscape and Travel / Macro / Pet /

    The forum is geared to offer you as a Photographer a place to show your work , and receive helpful tips, and Critique. Somewhat Unlike other Photo Forums, we won't reward you with Gold Stars, Ribbons, Bells, Bouquets , or Phony written text.. We are NOT a Candy- Land, but an honest open Forum with Constructive Views, We are not Harsh, and consider ourselves a Friendly Community. We also believe that CONSTRUCTIVE Criticism is so Important for Development.. Constant Praise, good Shot , Nice Work, etc, etc,,, will only keep you in a Comfort Zone, and not allow you to climb the Photography Ladder… but Don’t Think all we do is Critique, a Good Photo also deserves a good Response, and it WILL GET IT!
    We only ask that if you join , that you participate… Sitting back, lurking, will not move you along… I promise you that if you jump in, get involved, that you will notice progress in your Photography with each of your posts, no matter what your level!

    Please see my Multiply site, or visit my website to learn more about me,
    Come join in the fun, and learning ,You are Most Welcome to join, and I hope to see you there!!
