Over a year ago I decided I wanted to take my photography from a Hobby to a Profession. So... I began studying. I did not have time to take any formal classes. Every spare moment was spent researching gear, technique, and artistic style. I begged everyone I knew, and a few I did not know, to let me photograph them. With each session I learned valuable lessons. I learned how and why different ideas worked. I learned about rules, and when to break them. 


But most of all... I learned I love Photography more than I could have ever imagined. And I learned another thing... for me, the most satisfying photography is Portraiture. People. Cars and motorcycles are fun. Landscapes are breathtaking. Weather is powerful and mesmerizing. But People make all of those things more interesting. 


I invite you to follow my journey as I embark on this adventure. I'll share my success, and my failures. My goal is to become a full time, traveling photographer. I know there is a lot of hard work to come, but it will be worth it. I've already met so many interesting people. And it will only get better.
