Follow Friday. #ff

A cool trend on twitter is the concept called #FF (known as Follow Friday). Every Friday you spread some love to your co-workers, friends or organizations that you might not have heard of... today, I would like to share one with you.

I will never forget the morning that I met Victoria Hardina on Vilano beach. It was early, it was freezing and she was having a blast doing what she loved, creating beautiful images. What started out as a chance encounter eventually lead to part time assisting, photography collaborations, late night dinners and lots and lots and lots of Photoshop. Of course everyone loved her. My kids ask about her as often as my clients do... she is pretty awesome.

At the end of the semester she graduated from Flagler with all kinds of recognition and was immediately accepted into the masters program at SVA. She now lives in NYC, learning from masters in the field of visual art... but most importantly, she is making art with her camera. 

Please check out her stuff here: http://www.victoriahardina.com/ 

If you live in NYC or one of the cities she visits with some frequency (Tampa, St. Augustine) you should schedule a session with her while you can still afford it.
