Hey bloggers!! As I mentioned numerous times on my blog before I am in the MAD Academy, but for you new comers I’ll give a brief explanation! The MAD Academy is a multimedia arts design academy. This year as a junior, I will be focusing on photography. My passion! My first project in my photo class is based on “inspiration.” Meaning we have to photograph photos based on our favorite photographer and their genre. My favorite photographer is Chris Burkard. Throughout the years I have expanded my love and knowledge for photography. About over a year ago I came across the photographer Chris Burkard. Chris is an American self-taught photographer who shoots landscape, lifestyle, surf, outdoor, and travel. His work is a photojournalistic approach. Burkard’s career started off as a freelance photographer on both editorial and commercial projects. At the age of 21 he served as the senior staff photographer for Surfline, a surf forecasting site. Chris is 27 years old now and still expanding his portfolio and bringing smiles to many faces.
The images below our my own “Chris Burkard” photos with my best friend Anna modeling for me. Hope you enjoy! Comment below for your favorite type of photography and I would love to try and photograph them for you!
Morning bloggers! Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend! This past Friday the academy I am apart of had a beach clean up to earn community service hours and to give back to the community and do a good deed. After school we were supposed to all head down the a local beach, Leadbetter. From there we met up with the whole academy and they assigned clean up teams and we went to work. My team was quite the team and we picked up 4 pounds worth of trash. Pretty good since we were only cleaning up for 30 minutes. The trash consisted of many cigarette buds and Styrofoam Now after spending an afternoon giving back to the community I realized that once in a while we should take time away from our busy schedules and help out the community and the Earth we live on 😉 Nothing worse then to live on a dirty planet. I highly recommend for you to get a group of your friends and go down to your city hall and and schedule a community clean up and help out. I promise you it will make a difference. Even if its for only 15 mins.
Good morning bloggers. Sorry I haven’t been blogging lately. I have been extremely busy with school and getting ready for the finals. In my MAD class we are creating our own websites for a awareness and that has been taking up all my blogging time. SO, my apologies! But for this weeks music I’ll be writing about my favorite band at the moment, City and Colour. City and Colour started their music journey in 2004 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada and have been striving ever since. City and Colour is the recording alias for Canadian singer/song writer Dallas Green. They are currently signed to: Dine Alone, Vagrant, Arts & Crafts Mexico. To see their tour dates and get to know them better check out their website here. Check out their music! I promise it will not be a disappointment!! They always get me in a hyped and happy mood, hopefully they do the same for you 😉
