I want to be Fused!

Anyone who listens to me go on and on about all things photography, know that I look up to a select few amazing individuals who encompass what I hope for in my own business. One of these talented individuals is Kristen Weaver, a wedding and fashion photographer based out of Florida. In a short time, she's built a solid, well known photo business, has started her own international charity (Images for a Cure), and been published numerous times for her fashion work. She's spunky, honest, positive and someone I could only dream of talking shop with someday.

Well.... to my pleasant surprise, she just announced that she's holding a contest called Photofusion where she basically will take you under her wing for 2 days!!! This could be the career boost I really need at this juncture in my business. 6 months in and I'm ready to GO! My goals for this year include getting published, gaining exposure for my work, working with charities and exploring more fashion work. These are all things she could help me with...and all in the interest of fostering good will to other photographers. She's not asking money for her time, making you lug her gear around all weekend or even clean her bathroom - it's all for the love. The love of photography and teamwork... and fashion. Lots of fashion.

I have my fingers and toes crossed that I get chosen for this amazing opportunity! This is the type of thing I'd love to do sometime in the future, once I've reached some of my goals. Paying it forward and helping out your fellow photographers is what it's all about. Not the money, not the glory.... it's all about the LOVE! ;)

Here's some of my favorite fashion shots so far.....

Kristen, pick me and I'll stop bugging you via email.... promise!! <3


  1. Good luck Shann! You deserve to win!! :D

  2. You don't know me but I voted for you over two of my friends in this contest. Although one is good and the other is very good their work is more glam and I see better high fashion qualities in your work. You have potential and I hope you win!
