Great news! I am very excited to announce that I am going to be published in two new books, both of which are scheduled to come out next year! This will be my first time being published and I am so grateful that I have been given this amazing opportunity. I will obviously make another excited announcement as the dates of each book release gets closer!
My new camera is in the mail! I am upgrading to the Canon 5D Mark II and I couldn’t be happier about it. I’ve been using my Nikon D90 since the beginning of my journey in photography and it has definitely served me very well. I am debating still if I want to sell it or not, but my Nikon will always be my first love. I should be receiving my Canon in the mail today actually…if you follow me on Twitter (@DevanPerez) you will know exactly the second I have it in my hands I’m sure! Great new things to come!
I am dedicating this short, but very meaningful post to the most important people in my life. My family. Four years ago today, my family showed the unlimited amount of love they have for me by saving my life. After years of suffering with an undefined illness, I was finally diagnosed with a cystic tumor between the two hemispheres of my brain, the size of a lemon. Through the heartache of understanding that surgery was my only option and through fighting for my insurance to pay, my family could not have showed more love and support for me. The day before my scheduled surgery my insurance retracted their previous commitment to my doctor and would no longer pay for the extremely, expensive procedure. Without missing a beat, everyone in my family pulled together in just one day and payed out of pocket for me to have the surgery. I will never forget that day and how much love I felt. I am forever in debt to them all for saving my life. Even if I could pay back every cent to each person who helped me it would never be enough. I love them all so very much and if I do one thing in my life I hope that it would be to make them all proud of who I am today.
