Hello, friends! Yesterday was the only day I felt it might be necessary to put the air conditioner up, but today is a different story. When you live in the Mid-West, the weather is consistently unpredictatable (yes, that is an oxymoron, to my English geek buddies out there). Part of the reason I don't live in Texas, much to the chegrin of my friends and family is that we usually do get 4 seasons here...still waiting for Summer.
On a happier note, Angela Wangrud Photography has been doing wonderful work and taking on exciting clients and projects. I am still very busy with my work at Visual Image Photography, a company I love and am loyal to; however, in the last couple of months, AWP has had some wonderful subjects to capture, including Horror-O-Rama! My friend, who owns Rockabilly Girl Productions, Alice, is constantly busy with her passion for performance art and art in general, and she made this wonderful event happen for the 3rd year. I am proud, humble, and thankful to know her.
Balancing work with life is difficult to describe because I do what I love, and therefore it's difficult to separate the two. I am extremely lucky to struggle as a photographer...this is what I wanted, and I am exactly where I belong, and with the right people. Life has brought me to a place where I have really talented people in my life, and as a photographer, this is welcome.
And, on that note, I am happy to announce the newest project from Angela Wangrud Photography: "Repo: The Genetic Photoshoot", inspired by the movie, "Repo: The Genetic Opera". This movie is not for everyone, but I feel it is a modern-day "Rocky-Horror". It's a musical, it's a horror movie...what interests me (besides the fact that Sarah Brightman is in it) is the imagery. There are so many memorable characters, beautiful cinematography, and music. My plan is to take the interest generated, meet with folks, and try to get some great images. Someone asked me what I plan to do with these images, and honestly, I do not know...I simply feel that with the talent available to me it would be silly not to try to put something together. I am trusting this will be a fun project, and hope to end up with stunning images. Stay tuned. Oh, and if you don't mind gore or musicals, give the movie a whirl.
Overall, I am growing and learning, and evolving. This is all great stuff.
Thanks for all of the support. I am so incredibly thankful that photography found me, and I can't wait to see where it will take me.
