Wow can you believe 2014 is just about over? What an incredible year and I am simply blessed with all the wonderful things I have seen behind the lens of my camera. From wildlife to rockstars my camera has been there to document the best of the best. Thank you so much for your continued support of my blog, it’s been incredibly successful. Please enjoy the slide show I have prepared and HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
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.
The wonderful thing about being a photographer is how life and work changes from week to week and sometimes from day to day. I can be in the park with a mom and baby, or a soon to be graduating senior as I was this past week and overnight it can change where I am in an arena photographing a rock star.
The question I ask myself most often is how did I get here? It’s not been easy and it’s taken a lot of Work, determination, and time. I enjoy the diversity of change and I enjoy meeting people and working with some incredible clients. I keep honing my skills and improving my art and of course marketing my work. I am passionate and so incredibly happy to be able to create so many wonderful memories for each of my clients. I also love that I get to see those musicians that I enjoy listening to from behind the lens. I hope I never wake up from this dream.
