Kiewit Western + the Twitter Connection

AFTER years of thinking that Twitter sounded like one more way to waste time sitting at the computer, a friend convinced me that it just might be worth investigating as a professional networking tool for my photography business. I was skeptical, but one night about 2 months ago, I rather spontaneously started tweeting.

My approach to the social media outlet, knowing nothing about it on the first day, took form quite quickly as I realized that I was actually interested in tweeting with two basic target groups: 1) photographers, by way of "joining the conversation" and sharing valuable information, imagery and product links and 2) architects, as a means of again sharing interesting links and conversing with my target clientele.

Much to my surprise, I was DM'd (direct messaged) by a Denver architect almost right away, and thus landed an actual paying (and satisfying!) job within my first few days of tweeting. I am extraordinarily grateful for the experience of working with the classy James Greenfield, Architect, and hope to work with him again soon!

Here are just a few photos from this commission:

Holiday Lights in Denver '09

Snapshots from the last week using my OLD Canon because it is light and easy when out with my son (first gen DSLR!).  I'd love to go back and shoot these locations with my pro camera and tripod... but these are fun anyway from my travels with my boy so far this season!  I just love holiday lights!
First batch is from the Opening Weekend at the Denver Botanic Gardens, and the last two are from our City Hall Building, all lit up for the holidays!
