I can’t even explain this feeling, it doesn’t feel real. Maybe it’s because I’ve been up all night and now I’m hallucinating.
Mike Ruiz very chill like said yes. Question on my mind: “How on earth will I get there, where will I stay, transportation, meals, location…” Answer: “Trust the Lord”
I’ve set up a campaign to help cover some of the expenses for this trip, it will no longer be sponsored but instead will have to be on my part – that’s okay because the third time is the winner.
Below is the quick and simple way to get an internship. Currently it’s the longest and most difficult to plan for but that’s okay “Trust the Lord.”

ATLANTA, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Hartwell Industries, a leading designer and seller of decorated and blank garments, announced today that it will partner with Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) to help raise awareness for its “Helping Hart” giving initiative. Students majoring in fashion, fashion marketing, illustration, graphic design and advertising will collaborate to transform Hartwell apparel into original designs inspired by the concept of “giving.” The 72-hour challenge is all about skill, speed and creativity.
My team and I collaborated to put together a cohesive presentation for this project. We all the 72 hours given this contest and out team FNX(Phoenix) in return won!
Our designs were inspired by the Phoenix that rises from it’s own Ashes – our Designer Aubrey Busek took this challenge to heart and with the collaboration of our team: Nathan Pinney – Illustrator, Sania Tharani – Fashion Marketing, Albie Elloy – Graphic Design, and I Carlos Maldonado R. – Photographer, were able to win a $1,500 (split amongst us all), Hartwelll attire, and a day trip to New York!
We were very honored by this amazing award and incredibly shocked as our competitors had so much to present!
Initially, I wasn’t going to participate in this contest as I simply wanted to help out unaware of the prizes. I actually helped a rival team with their lighting still unaware what their pictures were for. At the closing reception, they surprised us when they changed the award to a trip to New York.
This is the SECOND awarded trip to New York I am honored to receive.

Phew… After a whole year of anticipation Black and White was a BRAND NEW topic for me learning to use film, the dark room, and of course the film camera. It’s incredible to realize that eight years ago I wanted to become a photographer and was anticipated to use the dark room – until Digital got popular and so that was what I started photography with. Now, after those five years I finally had the chance to learn and expand my fine art in photography by adding a new medium to my photography experience. The works produced were, I would say the most meaningful to me because they were no longer digitally processed images to be black and white. They were actually manipulated by me to produce my artistic visual thus increasing the value of my images form my perspective. In the end my professor Sandra Phipps was extremely resourceful and got to appreciate my style of work which – “steps outside the box”
I got to work with film, RC paper, Fiber Based paper, developing chemicals, exposing negatives, developing, toning, and 12hr projects.
FIRST film roll ever:
First Silver Gelatin print using developer and stepping in the dark room:
Creative 12hr Project: We had to photograph one picture every hour. I started at 7pm going through my work night at ATL Nightlife.
The twelve hour project was one of the hardest both in exposing the negative but also in developing the print because I included two exposures in my silver gelatin prints making this project a very expensive and tedious due to the trial and error process involved with image development.
Over all, the black and white photography class gave me exposure to a new medium I had never used before and can now use to my future artistic approach. It was one of my TOP most favorite classes so far this quarter.
For my final project I did a documentary on the life of an Undocumented Lifestyle.> Uploaded on a different post.
