When I started this blog in 2009 I had no idea I would commit to it as long as I have. I use this space to showcase the projects that I’m currently working on and connect with others. Believe me, it is much easier to update photos on here than on my main website!
As a shout out to photographers, creative people and anyone else who has a passion for something: Never Quit! I remember some of my early work in photography and it was so horrible LOL! Nothing was good about it, underexposed, blurred or unfocused, no tonal range and the list goes on. I remember when I was in college I was faced with the dilemma of choosing whether I would continue pursuing photography or would I major in sociology since I was failing one and making straight A’s in the other. I’m so glad I didn’t quit. It has been a long road and I’ve made a ton of mistakes (like millions) but I’ve also grown exponentially. I believe you have to learn to receive criticism in order to grow, but never create for the sake of the critics. Create because you love it. Create as if it is your destiny to bring something great into the world. Never lose that spark of happiness that comes from making something beautiful that you are proud of. I’m still learning and growing as photographer and as a human being. I don’t plan on quitting any time soon.
Life is a blessing; all around us is the gift of both God’s handiwork and human achievement.
I have a B.A. in Photography and Digital Imaging from Virginia Intermont College and have exhibited my fine art photography in various galleries.
Feel free to give me a shout out anytime!
