I’ve been wanting/trying to start a photoblog for months. But, I figured out my problem - I was trying to play “catch up” and blog all the important stuff I’ve done throughout my photography career.
That career is already (!!!) five years old. It’s taken me to right now to realize that this photo blog is going to be about starting fresh. It isn’t going to be about my greatest hits - it’s going to be about the journey.
This is the place to check in when I don’t pick up my camera for a week because I’m a space cadet and was “doing other things” (like what!?). It’s the place to post new photos, raw photos, edited photos, commissioned photos, paid portraits, accidental portraits, anything I see fit.
I’m sure I’ll go over my greatest hits every once in a while as I go along. These experiences have shaped me as a photographer. However, I’m starting to see, as I do more research and more shooting and more teaching, especially more teaching, that I have a lot of development and growth ahead of me. I want to be conscious of it enough to write about and document it.
And so, onward. From the person who has rarely stuck with anything in her life until this year, let’s do this. I’ll be here, join me.
