An Attitude of Gratitude

I’ve taken an attitude of gratitude in my life personally and professionally that surpasses anything I have ever experienced.  I have a lot of folks to thank for where I am today and extremely grateful they are in my realm of success, first and foremost I have a faith in God who I believe guides my every direction.  I know I am heading on a path of complete success and it’s going to be a fun ride and I plan on taking as many of those who have gotten me to where I am with me on this adventure.

As I have stated in my past posts, I’ve been a photographer for most of my life, my first camera was a Kodak Instamatic then I graduated to a “Pocket Camera” and the best was the Yaschica my father gave me; I had graduated, so thank you daddy for that incredible gift and for the gift of understanding what it means to be a photographer.

I am also grateful for those photographers I encounter daily and get to work with I thank you for your inspiration and friendship, you guys are amazing and each of us bring something unique to our world.  I am so grateful for my friends who I have practiced on and allowed me to practice on their children and have enjoyed the photos I’ve taken, you guys totally rock and I look forward to future shoots!

I am also grateful for my future clients who see my work and want to be included in my portfolio, without you I know I would not be as busy as I am! Thank you.

I am really thankful for the clients I have and the venues I’ve been granted access to, thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with you.  I have been blessed to shoot some incredible acts and bands, without you guys that would never have been possible.

All of us have gotten to where we are by a lot of hard work, massive amounts of criticism, hours of editing and the love of the craft and pure creativity.  Take a moment and think who was your inspiration, and if you can, thank them.
