I started this blog to be a portfolio, not for me though. I will be inviting people to write different articles on here about photography, pictures, how to use cameras and more. The goal is to eventually have a strong list of posts sharing beautiful photographs. Whether those photographs are of families, cities, buildings, or something completely random – they better be damn pretty.
The thing I love about photography is that it is an art form based around light. Light is such a thing we tai for granted. None of us realize just how important light is until it is gone. The other day I was out with my room mate at a grocery store. We were walking along just fine when out of nowhere… the lights surged off! Everything was in black on Aisle 9! It was so dark. For that moment you are stunned by that deeper darkness… then that moment is over and the bright lights of Americana super stores are back on, kicking away with their electrical buzz. What is interesting about this?
It shows our nature. Our need for the light and our fear of the dark.
The right photographer can use these concepts to really immerse themselves in the power of the photo. I believe this goes for every kind of photographer out there. I know people who take beautiful photos with flip phones for crying out loud! Now that is COOL!
All of that being said, let the games begin!
Enjoy the photographs on my website, feel free to contact me if you have some cool photos you would like to share.
All the best,
