Moving Past, The Grass is Always Greener

Each time the photographer picks up their camera, they are challenged by the creative process. Yes, there is the technical side which for many, they never get past what they perceive as a huge wall. And getting past that wall you smack right up against the creative. Then if you’re like more photographers, you spend in between time on the web looking at other’s photographs, often in the hopes of inspiration. That’s when the “grass is always greener” pops up as we think is only we …. Using myself and the emails that pour in, there is the very real perceived idea that I live the life my mom told her friends I was living when I became self-employed in late 1990, “Oh my son has retired and just travels and take pictures.) The perception many get from their search for creative inspiration when seeing photographer’s social thread is just that, all they do is take pictures. That perception is barely anchored in reality just like the photograph itself!...

Thanks Start at Home!

It’s that time of year when we do what we should do everyday, and that’s give thanks. I feel fortunate that my list runs for days and days to cover it all but at the top of that list everyday is my family. Many good fortunes made it and make it possible that Sharon and I have the great fortune to spend tons of time with our boys Brent and Jake (and Brent’s much better half Katt). While I tell them every opportunity I have, just want it publicly said how thankful I am they are all in my life!...

The Love of My Life

Forty years ago today, my life was changed forever. It’s when our adventure together began, one that continues to this day and points to the future. She’s my business partner, my best friend, gave me two amazing sons and has been by my side from the very start. There are no words to describe my love for her, and no words to say thanks. But she will always be, the love of my life! This is how it all began “Will you go out with me?” That one question launched the two great love affairs of my life. In my dad’s new Dodge Dart Swinger (what a name for a car), I picked up my date. In the trunk was my new Minolta SRT202 w/50f1.4 and 105f3.5 I had worked all summer to buy, a 24mm lens borrowed from a friend and my brother’s tripod and cable release I had borrowed from him. With that we made the drive down to Huntington Beach, a 30min rush of nervousness. We...
