@TAZCABLESNAPS Is Giving Away 100 2Hour SNAPSessions (Click for Translation)

Hey Ya'll - Thanks for visiting, I hope you come back to this particular outlet (The Daily Focus) it is my current road map and time line to being a better photographer. I am not new to the business but I am new to focusing entirely on one thing - in my life.

Taz Cable - Photographer 
I am a gypsy by nature and have been in my RV traveling the US for almost a year. I have found myself wanting to be a Photographer that lives on the road for a few months out of the year and also establish a relationship with my fellow winter 2016/2017 Friends in the Tampa Bay Area, more specifically Palm Harbor, Florida Area.

Some of you are here because I ask and some are here by referral. Either way my goal is to shoot everyday, get better at my art and my niche in that art - photography.

I need help building my resume. I am looking to give away 100 two Hour SNAPSessions using and trying my interpretive style of photography on folks like you.  Using The Daily Focus  and my street approach - So that I have some what of a relationship with before I start ambushing folks at events and festivals. Practice.  Become comfortable as a photographer but also an effective blogger. I am using all my methods to promote this one page and collect the correct amount of information from every photography opportunity I run into or personal I intercept on the internet.

FAMILIES, FRIENDS, ANIMAL LOVERS, ACTIVE JUNKIES & LIFE LOVIN FREAKS APPLY!

Click the photo below to be directed to an online form I created to better know you. Hurry I do have a time limit on what I can do and what my travel plans are. No matter where you are in the USA or in Tampa Bay - tell me more about you.  Thanks again.

1/13/2017 - TGIFriday - The Juggle is Real


FRIDAY
1/13/2017

I don't have the pictures from last nigh sunset edited yet.
I didn't over come my "shyness" from Thursday. So it's just sunset photos.
Today this morning I am driving for Amazon. I plan on finding stories today. Stand by. Have a great day.

2:38PM - So I had a talk with myself today and if Rome couldn't do it- neither can I! It will all work out. I will figure out my approach to each day and meet fabulous people. Most businesses have a training period and this is something very new. For me any way. I am at the part time job - working on pictures from last night's sunset. The Juggle Is Real

1/12/17 - Thursday - When Did I Develop A Shy Side?


WEEK: 1 DAY: 3

LOCATIONS:
Dunedin City Park
Clearwater Beach

AS TODAY STARTS: Well I am a little late in starting my day with words, but I started shooting right away today. The last few days since I started this blog something has stopped me from shooting.
In the last few days I have come to realize that I really have gone through some " Changes". Maybe it's a midlife crisis. Na. This is no crisis. I have really spent the last few months getting to know who I am, now. I spend so much time worrying about the projects I was working, I worked non stop so I really forgot how to have fun, outside work related functions or the bar.
As I get older I find that I wanna be more active. Well maybe I should say that as I peal more of these onion layers back I have the urge to BE more active.
So my point is I feel my confidence level is low right now. Most people can say that I have never met a stranger but it seems this morning I felt like everyone was unapproachable.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!! I have been eager to meet with folks and capture some cool shots a week and NOW I have the excuse that I can't approach people. I guess what is really going on is I don't have "THE PLAN" as solid as I want. I took sometime so shoot some today and get more familiar with the camera. I will have the pictures up soon today. Look for my FINAL THOUGHTS TONIGHT just after sunset.

I am OK with this kind of drama - it's still a moving forward kinda drama. Growth!

4:07PM We I am at my part time job and I have a couple of photos edited. I guess I need to find shooting locations for times like today. I guess. I am just not thawed out yet. I am done here at 5:00PM and Sunset is 5:55PM - I will be on the Dunedin Causeway. I will see you this evening after sunset. Stick with me. I will get it together.

I wanna do post cards like this Clearwater Beach edited photo here. I have been sending post cards back home while I travel and I have to admit it is fun for me and those that receive them. I guess I need to start sending my own. ( I will now) Great idea!

I will start asap because I can print them.

So I hope that the Sunset photos tonight have some conversations - with people - not my self.
See ya later.







This has to be my favorite find today. The plea of a lonely heart in Dunedin Florida!

See ya After the Sunset!

1/11/2017 - Wednesday - On An All Nighter. Excuse #2

Good Morning from Beautiful Palm Harbor Florida! Isn't this just the breaks. When I moved to Palm Harbor in my RV a couple months ago, I looked for work. Work that I thought I wanted. Nothing. I even applied at 7 Eleven and nothing!

Now I have a website to build TODAY!

I plan to do a Pop-Up Studio today I am not not sure where. I really hope to get out there with some 1,000 Word Shenanigans too.

I'll do my best. I am on an All Nighter tho!

I should have the final edition complete today an hour after Sunset.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Well I finished the website, but that did nothing for my Photography business. I hope tomorrow turns out some snaps and such.

1/10/2017 - Tuesday - The Excuses Start Now.

Today is my first attempt to all this. If you have not read the first entry then I guess I should briefly explain. You can read my full Letter of Intent that is in this blog.
CONATCT INFO:
CELL- 865-640-3313
EMAIL - taz@tazcable.com
FACEBOOK: @theTazCable
INSTAGRAM: @TazCableSNAPS
TWITTER: @TazCableSNAPS

Basically every morning I begin the days blog like I am now. I come up with questions that I will ask people today, a survey or two, also my 1,000 Words Shenanigans , announce my Pop Up Studio for the day and questions I wanna ask to discover people. I think using this method will allow me to grab some unusual pictures and capture some great memories for folks.

So each morning I will start the blog with my thoughts:
Good Morning from Sunny and Chilly Palm Harbor Florida. I have not been in Florida before - ever - during a cold snap like we have had here. Today is going to be a challenge for me I think because I like to shoot photos outside and I am not sure how many folks I can find out today because of the weather. I am also kinda nervous because all of this is so new for me. My new adventure - photography - is not so new for me but this concept is. I am looking forward to the people I will meet today and making sure that "I am on to something here".

HERE  TODAY'S FOCUS - The content will fill in through out the day and I will start the  finalized version of this edition today one hour after sunset. Depending on the number of pictures and the amount of people I meet - you should see it complete by 8:00PM EST 1/10/16

TODAY: Tuesday January 10th 2017

SHOOTING LOCATIONS:
Dunedin Causeway
Downtown Dunedin
Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks

TONIGHT'S UPLOAD STARTS: 7:00PM

POP-UP Studio - Today is going to be one of my favorite places here in the Tampa Bay area. The Sunset at Dunedin Causeway. I will be around the cafe & paddle board businesses on the causeway.
Sunset is at 5:54PM I will be in the area at 5:00PM organizing and staging participants. Bring the entire family - just no pets are allowed on the beach.

1,000 Words Shenanigans -  Since this is the first time for this one I will explain it. When I find willing participants I will give them words or emotions and with out thinking about it too much, I ask them to "pose" their answer and hold it while I snap pictures.

TODAY'S SHENANIGANS:
1) The Day You Met
2) The Color RED
3) Your Expecting (New Baby, Dog, Cat)

GETTING TO KNOW OUR FELLOW MAN: Everyday while out taking SNAPS of folks I will get to know them more. Some questions will go unanswered but I hope to capture wonderful facial expressions and body language.
Here is today's Frame Log and Questions of the day.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Well the time is 4:45PM and I screwed up my very first day. I didn't really. After I released my BLOG today I got a call for a part time job - today I trained - tomorrow is normal. Whatever normal is!

The Daily Focus & SNAPS Letter of Intent & Programs

TO The Daily Focus Readers

First thank you for allowing me to focus on photography by visiting my blog. The blog is basically a good place for me and the people I meet, today, and I have a place to stay in touch. More importantly it gives me a place to tell their story. I lied - more importantly I have a platform to sell my photography which keeps me traveling and I continue to focus and get better in my field.

I trust that using my camera and my personality that I will get a few of my life questions answered and I know that I will meet people who will given me more questions - which will still be answers.

Hopefully the daily focus will give you the same effect. Maybe some information that you needed from someone who has lived it. I know if you read daily you will be enlightened and the entertainment value will be there too. If not I am out too.

I look forward to meeting you and hearing your stories,

Taz
