Nearly There!

I can't believe it, myself.

It's a little over a year since I took the plunge.

I committed to a complete career change by taking a professional photography course through the New York Institute of Photography.

I reported to you, in February 2011, at the halfway point of the journey, of my progress.

Now, suddenly, I'm so close to the end of this particular stretch of road.

I've successfully passed my final examination, and am two shots into the photo project series of 9 images that will make up my last submission to the school.

My aim is to have mailed the last package to the college by the end of this month.

Hopefully, I'll receive my assessment by the end of October.

And I'll receive my graduation certificate by the end of 2011.

As promised, I'll post all the images from my last three units, along with the comments from my instructor, once that last result is returned to me.

Watch for it!


  1. That 's awesome Tanya! Congrats!! I can't wait to hear more about your future success! This is only the beginning, right? : )
    P.S. I can't wait to see the pics.

  2. Thanks for your encouragement, Mary! The thought of being finished as a formal student is a bit scary (while being exciting, too) - it means I have to get out there and prove that I can now DO IT!!!

  3. Wonderful Tanya! I'm a bit jealous and motivated. I just have to finish the test for Unit 6, and 4, 5, and 6 photo projects. Woohoo!!!

    Oh and this shot is perfect. I love the macro and the color : ) Seems like it could go in a bright yellow kitchen. Congrats Tanya but please don't disappear.

  4. Oh, I'm not "there" yet, Karen - I'm going to need the ongoing support of our little group for a long time yet! And thanks, I'm really chuffed with how this shot turned out!

  5. Grande Tanya,congrats!!!!
    have a looovely Sunday
