Howdy everybody, been quite a while for an update, as usual.
2009 is here, it has been quite a rollercoaster thus far, but what would life be if it weren't one? This is my last week of college at Brooks Institute here in Ventura, California.
On Sunday, March 1st I will have completed three years here at Brooks and will be walking with my Bachelor of Arts in Visual Journalism. Cheers to that.
Going through this college was the adventure of a lifetime. Absorbing mass amounts of information, pushing myself above and beyond my limits, I have met a fantastic assortment of people, lived alone, fell in and out of love, made big purchases, etc. This entire experience has been absolutely life-altering. Most importantly I learned more about who I was, what my values and morals are. I grew as an individual.
On to more updates,
As you may or may not have noticed I'm now shooting with a Canon 5D, unfortunately not the new MKII. Furthermore, I am typing this journal on my new laptop that arrived tonight, along with software. I snagged myself a new 15" Macbook Pro, 2.8ghz processor, 4gb of ram, 320gb hard drive. As for the software I picked up Adobe CS4 Design Premium, and Final Cut Studio 2. Yeeeeeehaw.
Finally, a brand new computer, with fully legit software. If you knew me and my...experiences with my other Macbook Pro you would be cheering for me as well.
I think I've earned this. I've done a damn good job here at school, produced a wonderful body of work, and taken in so much knowledge that will absolutely find my success in my endeavors. Now, to start looking for work as an Nature / Outdoor Adventure Journalism photographer, videographer, editor, or guide.
I thank you all for your continued support and interest in my work here on deviantART, my website; ChrisGiordano.com, and anywhere else you may have seen my work.
Cheers to experiences, love, friends and family.
