inspired beyond belief

i JUST returned from an AMAZING conference (jan 17-20) in austin texas - it was so cool to see how God worked out all the details, big and small.

i wanted to share with you the nuggets i gathered while i was there:

* comparison kills creativity
* look for ways to stand out
* dare to dream
* story trumps quality
* tell a one frame story
* let one word describe you
* trust is EVERYTHING
* make a friend, NOT a sale
* DO NOT buy into a lie about your business
* utilize EVERY minute
* give your client an 'experience'
* if you can dream it - you can do it

to see MORE about the conference that so impacted my life,

create. connect. INSPIRED : by danny turner

danny turner's portraits are all about adventure, discovery & humor!

i had the pleasure of re:connecting with danny turner last night (01.14.10) at lakewood landing in dallas and a handful of other local photographers (that i went to college with), and what a GREAT time it was.  these are friends i don't wanna live without!!

danny turner shoots studio & location portraits for his editorial, entertainment
& advertising clients in both los angeles & texas.  for danny, each assignment is an adventure, whether it is across town or across the ocean!

EVERYONE is interesting to danny, whether they are in jail or in a boardroom.  he LOVES meeting people, hearing their stories, responding to their environment, the weather & the lighting.  danny says his camera is like a 'divining rod', moving him through a location, helping him discover a composition or a point of view that will tell something interesting, humorous or cool about that person.  NEXT, danny pulls the elements together to make the final photograph, like making a one frame movie!!!

to see MORE of danny turner's work ck out - you will be just as inspired as i am!!!!  danny and i talked about a project last night that would be a dream come true opportunity for me!!!!  watch for future posts about my danny turner adventures.  ; )
