Portrait of Ray, from my senior thesis project "Confidence Looks Great On You." Exhibited in blog form and accompanied by stories written by each woman photographed, the series examined confidence in women of various age groups and backgrounds and encouraged them to embrace confidence. You can read Ray's story on the blog, http://confidencelooksgreatonyou.tumblr.com .
I'm planning to keep photographing more women (and possibly men, as well) for the series this year. If you live in the Los Angeles area and are interested in being part of the project, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
