I love photography. I see the world and light in a whole new way. The camera helps me meet amazing people.
I can not tell you how many times that people have seen me with all of my equipment and asked what I was shooting. Or, assuming that I know what I am doing with a camera, they will ask me to take their photo. Many times this leads to a conversation with these strangers. And I have met some really amazing people across the globe. I get a chance to travel the globe and experience so many amazing things. It is not just people who I am meeting face-to-face, it is the chance to interact with all of you. There are a lot of reasons why I choose photography.
- I get to capture family history and memories.
Sure, when I shoot an event like a family or wedding, I am making money doing that but that is not the only reason that I shoot these types of events. I love being there to capture that important moment in time, a moment that will hopefully be remembered forever through my images. It was at this time that I realized that we are not photographers, we are historians! I will also tell you that there is nothing that makes me happier than to walk into a friend’s house and see, on their walls or mantelpiece, countless family photos that I have taken for them over the years.
- I get to share photos with others.
What good is it to take photos if nobody is ever going to see them? I love capturing images for myself and my family, but also to share with others. It is for this reason that I started this blog and created the Facebook and Instagram page. When I first created the blog, it was for friends and family to see what I was up to. I am very thankful to have all of you who view the images, ask questions and give your opinions. You are a big reason why I love photography.
- I get to give back
To me, the most important word in the English language is “passion.” And I try to do everything with passion. Whether it is interactions with my friends and family, driving, or shooting photos, I do it all with passion. And through my photography and this blog, I get to spread that passion to others.
