A little late but ... Happy New Year! 2009 has brought a lot of changes for me. Not only do I have a new home in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, but I have some great news to share. As some have heard, I have resigned from Movmnt Magazine (quarterly magazine for fashion, dance, music and pop culture). I am extremely excited for this opportunity to explore my future on my own.
So it's official. CLAIRE BUFFIE:photography&design my full time business! Continuing to specialize in actor/dancer headshots and weddings, I am also committed to using this new-found time and freedom to explore deeper with my dance photography and get creative with fashion photography as well as sharpen up my web design. This is a big leap for me, but an exciting one!
Every college graduate has that “oh no, I’m adult, what now?” moment – and I had mine. But moving to NYC was a wonderful decision and opens me to a world of opportunity to promote the performing arts, which has always been my ambition. Many of you have been a part of the building process and foundation of my business, and for that I am very thankful. I have fed off of the energy from shooting actors, and hearing of their successes and being a part of weddings, witnessing great celebrations of love. And with that, I have experienced my post-graduate “ah-hah!” moment. This is what I want to do. I want to capture moments, promote talent and help people succeed and reach their dreams. I’m reaching towards mine – it’s a good thing I have long arms :)
As I move forward on this new adventure, I will never forget the people with whom it all started. Thank you for trusting me with your special day, your headshot, your safety in dance shoots and your memories. I look forward to many more!
