A little self-promotion

Finally! I have updated my online portfolio.
I have always struggled with keeping my portfolios and resumes updated. Focusing so intently on getting current projects done right, the presentation of past projects usually suffers. Before you scold me, I know how detrimental that is to professional growth. Furthermore, revamping my resume is on the top of my to-do list. The task feels daunting because I know I need to demolish it completely and rebuild from the ground up. I’ve edited it so heavily over the last five or six years that the original design has completely disappeared. I also know I will need to write multiple resumes if I’m interested in finding work beyond costuming for the stage.
I have been itching for a while to get out and learn something new, gain new experiences and skills, and make new connections. Another point on my to-do list is compiling a list of Brooklyn photographers I’d like to work with to get more styling work under my belt. Of stage, screen, and photo, I have found that I enjoy styling for photo shoots the most. I don’t know if removing the element of the performance puts me at ease, if following a visual story is more enjoyable than following a script, or if my aesthetic and desire for perfection lends itself more readily to the static image. Whatever the reason for my preference, I want to do more of it.
Feel free to direct your photographer friends to my portfolio!
