Portrait and Music photography in Birmingham, Alabama
When I was a young lad my father put a camera in my hand. From that glorious day on I knew what I was supposed to.... Oh wait, that never happened.
I have always loved and appreciated imagery but until I picked up a camera about four years ago it was limited to a brief and non committal moment of "oh, that's cool". My mom bought a little Nikon D60 for an upcoming trip to Italy (without me, thanks mom) and I picked it up by chance to play around for a bit to stave off a spell of boredom. I ventured out into the back yard and starting clicking away near Pulitzer material of flowers and bugs and the occasional squirrel. Ground breaking stuff really (insert sarcasm here). I quickly realized that making a good image doesn't involve simply pushing a button.
Over the last four and half years or so I have made some good images. I have made a few crap ones as well. That's what makes what I love to do, Photography, what I love to do. A constant learning process, growing, changing and evolving. There's a mountaintop up there, but I don't ever want to reach it. I just want to meet some great people, make some great friends and enjoy the rigorous climb, hopefully making a few great images along the way.
