Help Tristan Get to California!

Hello friends! My name is Tristan Ervin, a Los Angeles bound photographer currently residing in Atlanta GA. I have big dreams of working in the entertainment, commercial, and music industry as a photographer in California.

After visiting Los Angeles on several occasions, not only did I feel at home, but I felt that living there would (and will) serve as the best location for me to fully live out my potential as a photographer in the commercial, entertainment, and music industry. It's a tough place to break into, but I know I have what it takes to make it. Everything that I have worked for, everything that I've sacrificed, all the relationships that I've built up until this point will all come to fruition when I finally take the leap, pack my bags, and make the move.

My goal is to move by the end of March 2014. Since receiving my B.F.A. in Photography at the U. of West Georgia over a year ago, I've been working as an image retoucher in Atlanta, and have been putting 80% of each of my paychecks into my savings to make the country-wide trek, but it hasn't been easy. I've had to spend hundreds of dollars on unexpected incidentals (car troubles, computer troubles, etc), all of which have been major setbacks. Simply put, I need a bit of a boost!

If you believe in my dreams, if you support my endeavors, if you've experienced my photography, if you've grown with me in my professional journey, now is the time, more than ever before, that you can show your support! A donation of ANY amount will always be greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much for your time and consideration as I continue to chase and conquer my dreams. You are a large part of the success I will experience!
