It’s not often a tall, attractive blonde invites me to her hotel suite. In fact, that has never happened, but this is Las Vegas, city of sin and land of a thousand opportunities. Did I take her up on this offer? You know I did.
However, this visit was far more innocent than it sounds. The woman I was meeting was Catherine Hall of Catherine Hall Studios and host of TWiT Photo on the Netcast Network. Catherine is an amazing photographer and an overall great person to speak with. She is friendly, extremely down to earth, smart, and just really fun to be around.
Catherine, Maria and myself met for a mentoring session as part of a charity auction for Thirst Relief International, a total win, win, win situation. The three of us spent a good amount of time looking at my website, my previous work and my business model. Catherine’s knowledge about these areas was unquestionable, her advice invaluable. However, the most valuable thing I was able to take away from this session was a renewed sense of confidence and the ability to believe in myself and know that I am only limited by my own fear of failure. That is something I was always carry with me and will always have Catherine to thank for instilling such a simple, but powerful life lesson.
It is my greatest hope that Thirst Relief International will repeat this charity auction again this year. I would be more than happy to participate again. It is a great opportunity for everyone involved and it is for a great cause. The value of information I learned about myself as a photographer and as a business is well worth it, times a million. Thank you to Thirst Relief and to Catherine Hall and all the great photographers that made this happen.
