Seeing two of my shots used as cover photos this season has been amazing!  The topics and publications couldn't be more different: California dairy farming in Edible Marin and Wine Country and underwater archaeology in the Dominican Republic featured in American Archaeology.  But hey, that's why I am loving my projects... they are so varied and unique.  One day I am shadowing artisanal cheesemakers, sampling fresh ricotta, and the next I am underwater photographing artifacts from a 1725 Spanish treasure galleon - ok, well the whole 'next day' thing is an exaggeration...

Either way, I have to stop and be thankful for everything that has happened in the past year.  Launching into the business world of photography has been slow going - and I am still looking forward to the day when I am completely financially stable doing it - but I have to recognize the progress.  When I receive the physical publications with my images, I get a boost of encouragement to continue on and tell more stories.

Thanks to Indiana University and Professor Charlie Beeker (pictured in the photo), this project was made possible, and I can only hope to collaborate in the future!
