Feast, by iStockphoto | New York City Documentary Photography

About a week ago, I found out that I’d been chosen as a November Protégé for iStockphoto’s new mentorship program, Feast. The very next day, I was on a conference call with the directors of the program, the other protégés, and our mentor, Mario Tama (Getty Images). The assignment, in a nutshell, is to illuminate a cause/issue/person/group of people in my community that I feel needs a little more exposure.

Since that call, my brain has been on overdrive in an attempt to come up with a compelling topic. If you know me, you know that I tend to be extremely ambitious. That said, I’ve come up with a lot of great ideas that I’d like to work on in the future, but that absolutely will not work in the span of a month. Access is a huge obstacle, and even though I’ve been pounding the virtual pavement, the doors haven’t flown open just yet. I have about a day left to whittle my list down and come up with a synopsis of my project. When I do, it will be posted on the Feast website.

In fact, our progress will be tracked weekly, so you can check in and see how we’re doing. In the meantime, why don’t you go on over to the Feast page and take a look at the brief, and maybe even the other protégés? Click.
