20 things about me

I’m naturally a very private person. If I know you, and really get to know you, I will share small things, but for the most part, I don’t share much about me. I figured it might be fun to do a 20 things about me that you might not know. This makes me vulnerable so go along with me. I don’t think I’ll add any personal things, but all business things. Let’s get started:

1.) As my bio states, I’ve been holding a camera in my hand since I was about 4 years old. This makes me a photographer for 37 years.

2.) My first 10 national publications were shot with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel 300D and kit lens.

3.) I am never happy with the work I produce.

4.) I never shoot to make anyone, clients included happy. I shoot to make myself happy. Clients will come based off the strength of the work I share.

When I told her I was asked to go, we made an agreement to meet up together. I got there a little late, around 11 (event started at 9) Genna showed up with Caleb at about 1. Genna went through makeup and Caleb just hung around. The theme of the shoot was 1950′s and it was one of the more unorganized event’s I’ve attended. I hardly shot any but told Genna to stick around and we can shoot after. Genna agreed and said she was getting ready to tell me the same thing.


After everyone left, Genna, Caleb, and another photographer friend and I did some shooting. The first thing Caleb said to the friend and I was ” View full post »

Not good enough

Any photographer who is worth their weight in their profession has asked themselves “Am I good enough?” Not good enough is a constant thought for the consummate photographer. We all are chasing our next best image and sometimes the chase leads us away from what we’re most comfortable.

For me, I’ve always invited change. I like the uncertainty that change causes. I like that I don’t have total control, but View full post »
