This last month has been one of the most intense times of my life.
At the beginning of March I came back from a long trip to New Zealand, that left me more positive, calm and focused, and that filled me up with love and spirituality in a way I never thought possible. In the days I spent there, I quickly grew fond of that beautiful faraway land, and coming back home was one of the hardest decision I've ever had to take. I'm left a new person and I will always remember of that Country like the place that literally changed my life.
A few days later I have been told I had won the Professional Photographer of the Year Award (PPOTY 2011) in the 'Studio' category with this image, that I've already shared with you a few months ago: fav.me/d4i4ggg
It feels GOOD to see all the passion and hard work paying off, and I could never thank enough all the amazing models, make up artists, hair stylists and wardrobe stylists that helped me with the creation of my work and all the beautiful friends of mine that supported me through the hard times and were there by my side to celebrate the good. Life is a teamwork.
On the 25th of March it was my birthday, and finally today I got the chance to see all the beautiful wishes you left here on my page, so sorry for the delay, but THANK YOU SO MUCH!
It's been a long journey here on DA since I joined 5 years ago. It's through this place that I've met some of the most inspiring, creative people I know. I'm not a big fan of journals -as you may have noticed by having posted less than one per year!- and I do think that in places like Facebook and Twitter is much easier to keep in touch and get to know each other a little better, so I'm putting my links out here and if you feel like it, get in touch and feel more than free to send me your pages' links to 'like' back! I'd love to see you there.
