Tom Goldner...is amazing!

Last night was Tom's exhibition and it was awesome! I had gotten into Melbourne yesterday morning after I had accidentally missed my flight from Sydney to Melbourne the night before. We spent most of the day at the ygap offices where the photo exhibition was being held, and let me tell you, Tom did an amazing job! He picked the perfect photos to be a part of the show and it looks amazing!

The grand opening was last night and we probably had close to 150 people walk through the doors (the counted 120, but it definitely felt like more than that at times!). A few different people gave some quick speeches (I was one of those quick speeches...I think I kept it under the 4 minute time limit and hopefully gave them enough info about what the monies are going to!!), and then the floor was opened for purchasing. You would never believe how much money came in...over $23,000 in ONE NIGHT! And you know what, Tom's work was worth it. It is a wonderful exhibition.

Wanna know who's picture sold out first? PORTIA...wouldn't you know it! She steals everyone's heart!

Well, for those of you who don't get to be in Australia to check out Tom's amazing work, check out www.photoforfreedom.com or go to Photo for Freedom on facebook and see it there. So awesome!
