Just a quick post about some big news.
I’m so ridiculously excited to have been chosen as a Glimpse Correspondent for Spring 2012! As a photo correspondent I will produce two photo essays that will be published on Matador Network. I did, in fact, start sobbing when I saw the list (which should not surprise people who know me). I’m so excited! It feels great that all of my hard work toward improving my photography is gaining some validation and I can’t wait to work with Glimpse and Matador to produce something amazing.
And, in slightly less exciting news, I’m developing an official portfolio site. It was inevitable, but this weekend I was suddenly struck with panic that I should reserve kirstinstyers.com, which then seemed like a waste to own a domain without an actual page there. It’s still under construction, but in light of the Glimpse announcement, I figured I should start polishing it up more. What do you think?
(Have I confused everybody yet with the last names? Kirstin Schrier is my maiden name.)
Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So happy for you. And yes – portfolio websites can be cheap to make and its nice to have. Do it.
I don’t know why I put it off for so long, the domain cost $8/year and I’m using Tumblr for the platform, AKA, life is wonderful.
Congratulations; that’s great news!! Matador is one of my favourite travel sites around, hands down and they always have such quality posts. You’re going to be a great addition! 🙂
Thank you Naomi!! I hope I’ll be able to make something awesome, I’m so nervous already!
Yihaaa 🙂 great news, congratulations, very excited for you !
It’s funny because I saw this list on Matador and your name + Kyrgyzstan interested me the most but I didn’t check up on whether you had a blog or not because I was kind of in a hurry. Just randomly stumbled across it now through another random blog so yay! I get to say congratulations and I can’t wait to see how it goes for you 🙂
Hey congrats! I’m just finishing up the Glimpse program – was in the Fall 2011 group. It’s been a great experience, but way, way more work than expected. Sarah is a really great editor; she expects a lot, and then makes sure you deliver. Of course she might not have anything to do with the photo side of things. Anyway enjoy…
Thank you everybody!
