One of the things I semi-regret these past few years was not being able to update my deviantART as much as I used to. I blame it on life catching up and suddenly throwing me into a very deep (and sometimes dark) well of new opportunities and new territories. While I am responsible for the death of this account, it's also up to me to resurrect it once more. I keep telling myself to shoot and focus on photography more often, but I admit I fell into the trap of going with what can be sold better and higher. Partially it was pretty much caused by insecurity when it came to my photography skills, as the number of photographers suddenly shot up and I felt like I didn't have any thing new or special to bring to the table. Until when could I market myself as a young and budding student photographer with a knack for self-portraits, really? I tried to be realistic... and it cost a few sacrifices here and there. Besides, I discovered a new platform where I could do the exact same stuff AND enjoy a more "fashion" angle at the same time... Well, you guys know all about that.

Photography will always be my number one love. Even without my camera, I am constantly taking photos with whatever I have in my hand (Recently, I've been taking quite a lot of photos with my iPhone...). I just need to focus on having fun experimenting with again, as I have done from the start. I haven't grown much in terms of skill in these past years because I never really had enough practice and trial-and-error but I'm going to make it a goal from now on. To grow as a photographer. As for what kind of growth, I don't know yet... but I'm determined to update everyone with my work through the resurrection of this account. I've only had time to do commercial magazine shoots but not much the kind where I would make an effort to organize everything and think of concepts, etc. It wasn't completely bad, since I was also able to build my portfolio (and get paid a bit, heh) but I've been feeling a little stuck in terms of developing my eye further.

I hope you guys haven't completely forgotten about my photos yet, as most people in the physical industry I move in already have, lol. Anyhow, while I haven't totally finished fixing everything here, you can find more of me in my other sites such as my Main Blog, Twitter, Lookbook, Facebook Page, and Flickr.

I'll see you guys soon, yeah? :D

Thanks! Yeah, it was actually very surprising for some of my photographer friends when I crossed over to fashion/beauty/etc from just focusing on photography, haha. Well, it feels good to be back. This is where it all started. :)

You forgot to add in your instagram. lol. Watched your guesting at Live Love Lolz.. so much in you has changed these past few years, big change, and it seems Crissey is the only one who hasn't change. ^^ haha. Anyway, I'm not into fashion or anything, I only like your photography skills which I sometimes miss in devArt. Hope you get the time to do some photography again~ goodluck :D

Oops, lol. Will edit once I find time to edit!

Haha, yeah. I admit I was very, very immature then (I think until now) but in a very naive, kind-of childish way. Life happened and I was forced to grow up before I knew it.

Thanks for following my dA even during those x number of inactive years! This was where it all started. This is something I should never forget. But I did. So I'm going to step it up and go back to my roots.

Crissey has had her own share of "growing up" stories too, but yes, I do agree that she seems like she hasn't changed at all! She must've found the fountain of youth somewhere...

I think you've grown gracefully the way you are. In a short period of time, you've been into places and at the same time getting recognition around the world. That's some good life! It's nice to know that someone like you never forgotten who you were before. It's kinda cute actually. lol. ^^

Miss Tricia your photography skills are superb :) Don't feel down, I guess you just miss doing fun concept shoots. Anyway I am so inspired to be a photography because of you! :) It may sound so cheesey, I mean I have this calling to be a photographer, but sadly I haven't bought an SLR cam and my digicam was broken already. But it didn't became a hinder to me to continue honing my skills in photography :) I just use my mobile phone for taking photos anyways :) More power to you and more fun photoshoots to come! Definitely looking forward to it! :)

Thanks a lot! That's the spirit! It took me a lot of years of digicam practice too before I could really prove to myself and my parents that I deserved a dSLR way back when I graduated from high school. Technology has changed so much since then, and YES, I do find myself taking more pictures with my iPhone as well. It's just too convenient (but not in a bad way). Good luck with your photography endeavors!
