Wired and Tired

Its officially Friday night 11:14pm! I am currently drinking wine and researching diggs for a current fashion shoot I have on Sunday at 5am. One of the models just cancelled. Scrambling to find someone gorgeous and tall to fill in. A little nervous/excited. My mind won’t stop… so many ideas, so many thoughts, so many details! Thats my life in a nutshell!

Being a creative certainly has its perks...... crazy hours, interesting passionate people, beautiful locations, drinking on the job, & harnessing your inner nerd, I could go on and on…. however sometimes one just needs a break from all the glitz & glamour..... Some alone time to just be… well creative! Thats what these past few days have been about.. but somehow I still crave more time to think. A getaway to the islands would be fabulous but the thought of having to pack my bags for the 10th time this year just doesn’t sound appealing. So here I am... with my Macbook, procrastinating as usual instead of being out enjoying the world or taking in the scene.… here I sit blogging my life away!

CHEERS!

IT'S NOT HOW GOOD YOU ARE, IT'S HOW GOOD YOU WANT TO BE

Just read this book called "The World's best selling book by Paul Arden", he is a creative genius in the advertising world... think Saatchi and Saatchi. Anyway I've paraphrased some quotes I really liked from the book.. Happy Tuesday!

"Nearly all rich and powerful people are not notable talented, educated, charming or good looking. The become rich and powerful by wanting to become rich and powerful. Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have. Without having a goal its difficult to score."

"And yes, talent does help, but it won't take you as far as ambition."

"Everybody wants to be good, but not many are prepared to make the sacrifices it takes to be great. Most people are looking for a solution, a way to become good. There is no instant solution, the only way to learn is through experience and mistakes. You will become whoever you want to be."

"You can achieve the unachievable....
Firstly, you need to aim beyond what you are capable of. You must develop a complete disregard for where you abilities end. Try to do things that you are incapable of. If you think you're incapable of running a company, make that your aim and do it. If you think your unable to be on the cover of Time Magazine, make it your business to be there. Make your vision of where you want to be a reality. Nothing is impossible."

"If you can't solve a problem, it's because you're playing by the rules."

"Do not try to follow fashion. Be true to your subject and you will be far more likely to create something that is timeless. That's where the true art lies."

Dream BIG! :)

Recent TCU Article :)

"In Fine Fashion:

by Darren White '07
from The TCU Magazine

Dixie Dixon '07 is probably shooting a photograph right now.
The 24-year-old Houston-raised, Dallas-based fashion photographer started her own business, Dixie Dixon Photography, in May 2006.

Her client list boasts a mix of high-profile names, including country music star Jack Ingram, and up-and-coming local businesses, like Darian Thomas Designs and Billy Jealousy.

She regularly travels to New York and Los Angeles for shoots, and in July,Dixon was a guest photographer on “Doheny Models,” a reality show slated to hit television in fall 2009.

"I've always had that 'fire in your belly syndrome' as [Neeley Entrepreneurship Center William M. Dickey Entrepreneur in Residence] David Minor calls it," Dixon says.

Her peers are taking notice as well. In 2007, Dixon won the Hy Sheanin Emerging Photographer of the Year from Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. Her work has also been published in Rangefinder, a professional photography magazine.

Dixon says the business lessons she learned, as well as the relationships she made, while earning a degree in entrepreneurial management at TCU aided her quick rise in the photography world. For Dixon, doing good business is crucial; she spends hours each week following up with clients, sending them mini-portfolios and thank-you notes, the latter a lesson she learned from Minor, who she says was one of her favorite professors at TCU.

"I'm an artist first, but the business side of photography is everything," Dixon says. "You can take beautiful photos, but you have to sell them to make a living in photography." — DW

I absolutely love making pictures and I love getting to know and work with such passionate beautiful people inside and out. Thank you!
