Anonymous asked: Hi Nema, You spoke in our class at Temple and I was so impressed and happy that you took the time to be with us. Thank you. I do have one question--how are you funded? It seemed like a couple of students are 'closet photographers' and want to do more but don't have the time or means right now. Any suggestions?Thank you, Norma Alvarez
Hi Norma :
Thank you for the kind words : as it was my pleasure.
"I do have one question—how are you funded?"
Oh this Q.. I ask myself this Q everyday.. It’s a never ending Question.. ($$$) There isn’t a straight answer : I’ve had independent funding & also corporate @ times.. I’ve had fund raisers.. Grants.. I’ve worked for media team or worked to pay for it my-self.. I’m currently seeking all of these as options my-self.. A stressful reality that often block dreams. There isn’t really a direction answer or solution.. Without $$$ the ride stops & the kid cries. ;)
