The Kickoff!

No, I'm not talking about football season. It's a little too early for that. This kickoff is in reference to a photo project I'm beginning. As a freelance photographer/photo assistant, I'm not sure where my next job will come from so I have to make up stuff (like this blog) to stay busy, stay fresh and most importantly, stay creative.

I would have loved to follow and photograph the Presidential candidates around the heartland of America during their campaigning but 1) I have no media outlet backing me and b) I don't really have enough money to drop everything and country-trot through these United States. So my simple solution? Ward-trot through this District and do the exact same thing with the 2008 DC City Council elections. And everything is so much closer from my Mt. Pleasant abode. Wish me luck and visit my blog to see how the election plays out through my eyes.

Last night I was at an event at Hotel Helix put on by the Logan Circle Community Association introducing current council members Kwame Brown (At Large) and Jack Evans (Ward 2). They also introduced the newcomers: Independent Adam Clampitt looking for an At-Large bid and Cary Silverman challenging the incumbent Jack Evans. Check it out.
