Shaggy, Tony Gold, Jenny Jenny, Lady Saw, Ity & Fancy Cat, Iceman, Voicemail, Red Rat, One Third, Nikeisha Barnes just to name a few of the Jamaican celebrities that were at Rising Star Chris Martin's party Tuesday night. The party was planned by the lovely Diannie Gordon and there was food galore. Shabba would have been pleased with the quantity & quality of the girls in the place. I'm posting some pics.

Its been a rough two months (December & January) especially dealing with some backstabbing individuals determined to besmirch my character.(on a personal not business front) Thanks to God their motives have come to light and many now see them for who they are. I must thank the many individuals & especially my wife who stood by me and encouraged me during this time. I'm closing that chapter and moving on.

2007 has started with a bang! Venus & Serena Williams are in Jamaica & one of my corporate clients gave me the assignment to cover their arrival and some of their activities while here.

I just found out that some of my images were published in the October 2006 issue of the UNESCO Courier. Just google UNESCO/Gary Masters & the links should come up.

My little girl Stephanie has taken her first unassisted steps. She is now 10 months old.

I read a quote repeated by Mike Colon one of the greatest wedding photographers on earth and it really inspired me " You have no competition because there is only ONE of you on this earth. Embrace that fact and let it carry you in your art, your business, and your confidence!"

Never put a cap on your dreams. Its amazing how many ordinary people have done extraordinary things just because they believed they could do it. Remain humble but be confident in your abilities and proud of your achievements. I listened to an interview with the guy who is the basis for the latest Will Smith movie; this guy went from sleeping in public bathrooms to being a multimillionaire. Through it all the love he had for his son was so touching it was amazing. His drive to succeed took him right to the top of his game.

Always strive to be at the top of your game whatever it is. Dont let the pay or lack of it hold you back. If you wash cars for a living, be the best car washer that ever lived. If you are a secretary strive to amaze your boss every day with your excellence(even if he doesn't seem to notice or appreciate it). Always remember: Your attitude determines your altitude!
