Although I've been working in the photo industry a long time I had several life experiences that impacted my ability to stay creative. For the last several years I've been living through other photographers photographs. Now it's time for me to be myself, be confident, a be a photographer, and create. I recently read a book of quotes that's inspirational and I'm going to include a quote or two to inspire with each blog post that I do.
"Transformation doesn't ask that you stop being you. It demands that you find a way back to the authenticity and strength that's already inside of you. YOU ONLY HAVE TO BLOOM." Taken from the book Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
"Ask yourself. What is the best I can do? And then do that" Taken from the book Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
It's as complex or as simple as we want it to be. It's our mind, our vision, our reality, and within art is where we can share these things. The photos shown here were shot in the ten minutes I gave to myself to be myself and create. This is what I'm going to continue to do for those of you of you who need a little kick in the butt. It's not about being perfect, it's about being you.
I would like to inspire just one person with each blog post.
