Last night was our 3rd Annual Inception Gala. The evening was easily one of the nicest, most elegant and grandest events that I’ve attended in a long time. The Gala mimicked an Art Exhibition Opening. All of our images were professionally mounted and displayed on the wall and everyone wore formal attire. As people mingled, they sipped great local wine, ate appetizers, and listened to a brilliant Jazz band. The night was full of warm ambience, smiles, and good cheer.
So many people came out to see all the amazing photography and support family and friends. I am so happy that my parents and sister made the long drive too. This meant so much to me as they got to see my work mounted and meet all my great friends and teachers. Thanks so much mom, dad, and Tina – you guys are the best.
A big congratulation goes out to all my fellow classmates in both 1st and 2nd year. We are all talented and creative individuals and I cannot wait to see where the future takes us! My dear friend Katie took home first prize for our Portfolio competition. She deserved this win, as she is so talented. Her portfolio was centered on Black & White Fine Art Portraits. Every image was exceptional. I ended up taking 3rd place in this competition, in which I am proud and honored to have competed so well with all my talent friends.
Here are a few images my sister took throughout the night.
