I’ve been photo blogging for over 6 years now, and this blog has been around for exactly 4 of those. I don’t make my living doing this, nor do I want to. I have a job and while I do make some money through photography, I choose to keep that at a minimum so that I can continue to do this for myself. Not that being a full time pro can’t allow one to love what they do, I’ve just had experience in the past that has shown me that I like to try and minimize my job’s influence on something that serves as my creative getaway from the need to make an income personally. That is where I am with my relationship with photography now, and while I never know which opportunities may present themselves in the future, I am very happy that it provides me with the enjoyment it does. For that, and the things I’ve been able to accomplish through that, I am grateful.
I started this blog purely for the love of making and taking pictures while sharing and learning through interactive experience. Over the past year, this project has grown leaps and bounds thanks to all of you guys and I hope to continue to grow the blog as a resource for insight and entertainment while continuing to collaborate and cross promote. I have some new ideas and projects on the horizon, so stay tuned. I’d also love to continue to connect and collaborate with others, so feel free to hit me up.
I hope that everyone is healthy and happy, and if you or your loved ones are not, I hope that any negative circumstances are remedied in the near future. Photography has always been therapeutic for me in times of need, and a wonderful enhancement in life when all is well, so here’s to our common thread, our common passion and the ability to connect across borders and time zones, cultures and histories through this wonderful medium.
Happy new year and I look forward to our continuing and evolving conversation.
