In the beginning…

The photographer and his accomplice, Penni.

I wasn’t always one to have a love for photography or even art in general.  It began when I was in my early twenties with an HP PhotoSmart 715 point-and-shoot camera. It was a 3.3 megapixel camera that I bought from my parents for a few hundred dollars and that’s what set me off down the road I’m on now. I’m very thankful for that and for them. No matter how old you get, nothing beats the support of your parents.

 

 

 

"A Well Planned Photo"

But of course I didn’t realize right away that I had a keen eye for photography. As a matter of fact I didn’t even buy it with that idea in mind. The original idea was to have something better than the camera on my phone with which to take photos of everyday life with friends and family. It was only after a well planned shot that I realized I could do this. That was the point I started applying myself to take photos of scenery around me that I found to be particularly appealing to the eye.

 

 

 

Art with feeling; Prices without pain.

It has only been in the past few years that I realized there are people who are interested in displaying my photos in their homes. At first I thought they had a terrible eye for art, but once I started looking at my photos from their perspective I began to understand it. I never gave it a thought when I would snap the shutter but I’ve come to notice that all of my images have feeling to them. I never force a shot. If I’m not feeling it, I’ll drop it and revisit it another time.

I was never one to really put up anything more than posters on my bedroom walls when I was a kid. As I’ve grown up though, that has changed. I’ve looked for art to put up but to be honest; I didn’t really want to shell out four figures just to cover up a bit of white space on my wall. That’s perfectly fine if you do, but what about those of us who don’t?

So now I’ve decided that it's time to take the love for my craft to the next level. I’m going to start selling my art and I intend to do so in a way that everyone can afford. So please, if you haven't already done so, head on over to my portfolio and take a look at the works I’ve created. If you like them, and wish to put some of them on your wall, I’ll be happy to help.
