So, since the last time that I was here, I have been going to pow wows and taking pictures of the dancers as they do their thing. I cannot stress how much I love it. Pow wow days are becoming my favorite days of the year - the drum circles with the wonderful singers just hit me so right.
I have been lucky in that the dancers that have seen my 'work' like what they see. After my first year at the pow wow, I was approached by one of the dancers that saw himself in my online portfolio on FB. I gave him a high res file and he ended up taking it with him to Washington DC for use outside of the Smithsonian for whatever it was they were doing at the time.
Since then, my policy remains the same - IF you are the dancer in the photo and would like the file, all you have to do is let me know who you are, which file(s) and I will happily email them to you.
This year I hope to get to more pow wows across the great lakes region and take a few thousand more photos (each pow wow I end up with nearly a thousand files).
