the unveiling

announcing....my website! http://kittyjoesaintemarie.com/

you cannot access it via the photo above. that is just a screen grab to entice you to go visit the actual site. you can click on the written link above though.

i've been wanting a website for years to post my portfolio. many things delayed me including feeling like my work didn't warrant a site--flickr seemed enough, not having the money or expertise to make a site, not to mention the daunting task of editing. but the kick in the pants i needed came in the form of my three-part final for my 'business practices of professional photographers' class, in which i have to turn in a website, a print portfolio and a business plan. okay, so i'm one-third there!

seriously, though, the joy i felt at one in the morning after staring at a computer for six hours straight (not to mention the countless previous hours of editing down and re-sizing images) beside emre's sainted brother emir (master web designer--i had no idea!) was disproportionately larger than the relief of a final finished. this was a much bigger goal, and my heart swells with pride.

as you will see, i kept the portfolio pretty simple, choosing to show mostly new color work that somehow felt cohesive despite it's random nature. surely later i will add to or switch up the content and possibly provide more traditional categories like black and white, polaroid transfers, etc. but for now, there you have it. now i'm off to print the whole sha-bang.

enormous thanks to emir balik for the web work, and to my instructor and friend, seth, for contributing so generously to my 'about' page.

what are you still doing here? go see it!

My God, Kitty -- it's a gorgeous, gorgeous site! Even though I'd seen some of the images before, the gallery is amazing -- all of them laid out like that makes them even more arresting. Congratulations, web mistress!

When I woke up this morning Tristan said "you have to check Kitty's blog!" and I said "I already know...isn't it beautiful?" We are both impressed and happy for you! You rock and it is about time!

love the pics, Kitty! Remember you gave me a print of the teaser image? Framed and hanging on my wall! Awesome site you got there. And did I not tell you Seth is awesome? But I so want to hear more about this class? It wasn't on offer when I was a student there. Tell me! Tell me!
