Tomboy Project Update
I recently posted pictures on Facebook from my September romp around the midwest and a quick 3-day weekend in Nashville, Tennessee. Coming soon are photos from North Carolina and Georgia. CHECK IT OUT HERE.
I'm currently looking for tomboys in Michigan and New England. If you know of anyone, please send them my way.
It's hard to believe I've come this far and it wouldn't be even close to possible without the people who have stepped in to participate, recommend someone or let me crash on their couch.
We are almost there. We are almost finished.
I recently received some questions that I wanted to address here as well.
Q: What happens when you finish traveling?
A: After visiting all the states and meeting with all the tomboys I will begin to sift through all the photos finding the appropriate ones for the book. I will also begin the edit all of my notes, doodles and stories I was privileged enough to hear along the way.
Q: Will you photoshop your photos?
A: I will correct color and make the photo the best it can be, though I will never photoshop one of my tomboys. I am proud of the women I have photographed and they are beautiful the way they are.
Q: How are you funding this project?
A: This is probably my most asked question. The project is completely self-funded. I pay for the airline tickets, the rental cars, the gas, the hotel room, the food etc. etc. etc. I use my vacation and holiday time from my day job to travel to the different states. Though when it comes to getting the book published, I want to do a Kickstarter project because I feel it is really symbolic of everyone bringing the final project together. If you are interested in donating money, there will be more information on the Kickstarter project at the end of 2014.
I love getting questions and getting more and more people involved in the project. If you have any more questions, you can email me or just post them in the comments! Here's to 2014.
