Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce Diplomats

I've been a member of the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce for a few years now. I've been involved in more networking and going to chamber events. When Shana at the chamber asked if I would be interested in being a Diplomat, while I was honored, I was a little hesitant, not knowing what was involved. After asking around, I'm glad I did. For those who do not know what a chamber diplomat is, they're a volunteer representative of the chamber who attends chamber events (morning breakfasts, after hours, ribbon cuttings, special events and meals on wheels). Since I've been one only 7 months, I've really enjoyed getting to know my fellow diplomats and especially being a part of the community. Being able to see the new businesses and get to know about them is a blessing.

I've tried to attend as many events as possible to be a part, as a result, I've been one of four selected as Diplomat of the Month for the past 3 months. If you want to be a part of the community, join your chamber and get involved, you'll be glad you did.

Lamborgini Light Painting

Over the past few years, I've photographed many interiors using a light painting method by taking many photographs lighting small portions of the image one at a time. Last year a friend in Wisconsin started doing this same thing with small products and cars, i loved the idea, but wanted my own creative twist to it. As with the interiors, I have special lights I use to photograph different areas of the scene and car, knowing which angle, length of time and distance to 'paint' each area. While painting the car, I am envisioning the final creative art piece that the owner will proudly display in his/her man cave or shop, what a brag piece of art!!

The above Lamborgini was a fun session photographed in an underground garage in Fayetteville, that I had no idea about. The photo shoots are all done at night, the photography portion takes about two hours and about 6 hours to assemble all the images, blending them to natural perfection with detail.
