When I wrote the first draft of this blog introduction and sent it to a few people that I knew had a better grasp on the whole “blog thing” just to get some advice and to see if I was even on the right track. Two questions posed to me stood out the most. First who am I writing this for? And second what’s your focus? And with that perhaps focus on what is your favorite photograph that you (this being me) have taken.
As for the who am I writing this for, not sure? I guess it’s for me, and anyone that loves seeing cool photographs. As for the favorite photo part,,, I don’t have one, at least currently. What I do have is the whole concept of what my favorite part of being a photographer is what keeps me picking up my camera. And that’s meeting people, and telling their story. To me having a camera is like having an all access pass to everything and everyone. Seeing someone I’ve never met and being able to capture a moment that tells a story through my photography is just awesome.This is Dave; He works in the new hat store at Chinook Mall. I met him about 2 minutes before I took this image. I saw him, and said “dude, you have a great look, can I take your portrait”
The Tron Girls; How often do you see three very attractive women dressed like this in the middle of Chinook Mall – my wife likes to shop, so we are there a lot. These ladies were working for the theater doing a promotion for the new Tron Legacy movie, what are the odds.
