Chasing my dreams {outside of Chase}

Crystal Jo Foto goes Full Time!

So, I’ve officially left the corporate world.  Yep, Crystal Jo has taken Crystal Jo Foto full time!  It was a HUGE decision and extremely scary nonetheless.  I worked at Chase for 3 years – 3 great years.  I enjoyed working on the mainframe but found myself constantly thinking about photography, what I could be doing if I was outside of those 3 little cubical walls.

I love love love all of my co-workers at Chase.  I know I’m going to miss them sooo much!  It’s so great to be so close to friends at work.  You get to hear all about their families and grandchildren, teenagers and car accidents, ghost hunting stories and tattoos, and the list goes on and on of our hallway discussions.

I feel so blessed to work and love what I do.  I meet so many awesome people and find myself happiest when I have a camera in my hand and am able to think and be creative.  Thank you for all who made my Chase experience an unforgettable one.  You’ll be in my heart forever.

Here’s the 3 walls I was telling you about.  So nicely decorated and cluttered.  It makes for fun conversations with the “drive-bys”.

Meet Andy.  If you follow the blog, you’ve seen his family HERE or HERE.  Oh, and I love this pic of Andy mid-sentence, only because there is a flippin’ AWESOME picture of me and Jim Tressel right next to his head.  🙂
Some good ole Chase buddies after hours.   Me and Walt B.  Both wearing my favorite color.  He’s the ghost hunter.  Like, for real. More Chase friends.   This is Greg.  Really his name is Will Gregory.  I always like to ask people who have two first names if they “mind” having two first names.  Typically they say “no”.  Then I call them by their last name.  Hi Greg!   And this is Ma Waka.  I love love love her!  She’s so my work Ma.  And I shot her son’s wedding. HERE is the post.  They always make me feel like I’m apart of the family.  I miss you Ma!!I’ll see ya’ll real soon.  We’ll have to meet for some Chinese Goodness.  Bye Chase…I’m off to chase my dreams!
