Things I have learned...

I feel old.  When I was younger I knew I didn't know everything but my attitude didn't show that.  The more I see and learn the more I realize how much I still have to learn.  I have spent the last year looking, reading, watching... doing all I could to try and figure out what I needed to do to make a real go of my passion: photography.

The more I learned the more I studied, it seemed like being genuine was the key.  Don't get me wrong, learning your stuff is important but even if I were the best photographer and could tell you in mathematic equations the geometry of light the second after I walked into a location but I'm not real... but trying to be whatever it is I think you want me to be?

I think the basis for any relationship is trust, maybe this is naive but I feel it is true.  Why would you ever take the time to choose me if you can't feel some connection, some truth... some life in me?  This is YOUR big day.  Your once in a life time moment of starting your new world with the love of your life... it is a big decision.

Maybe I'm just crazy... but who doesn't love a little crazy?  I love the truth of moment.  That is the basis of my art.

Be real.
Be natural.
Be you.

Live. Love. Loud.
