OK, so for a newspaper story my mom wrote that hasn't been published, a Chicago Tribune photographer named Alex Garcia was at our house and told me that the Tribune photo lab is my "back yard." He's amazingly good, and also used to be involved in politics, which I'm totally in to. He's won a Golden Eye, which is apparently the world's most prestigious photo competition and a Pulitzer Prize for photo journalism. Wow! Then, another photographer who's friends with my parents is doing a lecture at the Apple Store on Michigan Avenue. My mom emailed him saying she'd love to come, and that I'm mad for photography and such. He writes back saying that I should do an internship at his studio some time. This guy is considered one of the premiere wedding photographers in Chicago. I'm incredibly psyched! The websites of these guys are here: http://www.alexandergarcia.com/main.php http://www.reallifeweddings.com/index.shtml I absolutely cannot believe how lucky I am!!!!!
