Pugs, Bloody Marys, and Photography -Freelance Friday features Erin Norbury

In an effort to promote the website FreelanceArtProducer.com, we have started Freelance Friday.  The purpose is to promote the freelancers on the site so as to gain more attention for them and the others trying to get hired.  So, from now on, when a freelancer on the site provides us with a blog post, we will promote it on a Friday. 

Today, we are featuring Erin Norbury.  From Armani to Ermenegildo Zenga, Erin has worked with hundreds of boutique contacts for merchandise shoots. Read on to find out her answers to our ten questions to help get to know her better.   And, be sure to visit her her profile  on FreelanceArtProducer.com to check out what she has been up to lately.
