Earlier this month, my mentor, Mark Maya, hosted a photo field trip in Downtown Durham. I knew I absolutely had to attend because my scheduled sessions had been getting postponed due to inclement weather, and I am not myself when I'm not taking photos. Katie and Kent were wonderful models, and the sense of community was absolutely invigorating. It was wonderful getting to make new friends with likeminded photographers. I'd like to thank Mark for bringing us together and taking the time to teach us new techniques, thereby increasing our confidence as artists and entrepreneurs!
