NO EGO... JUST ART!
"There will be ART and BEAUTY. But most of all... there will be TRUTH!" Chán André
It's a privilege to be able to create ART.
For ME, that's enough.
I think the best thing about THIS, is that I am a TRUE FAN of PHOTOGRAPHY and PHOTOGRAPHERS alike. I LOVE when ANY photographer gets that MAGIC SHOT... or when a MODEL or SUBJECT helps KNOCK ONE OUT OF THE PARK with the EMOTION they EVOKE.
SO... As I CONTINUE, I will just keep on shooting LIFE as I see it and maybe continue to be RESPECTED and LOVED for what I do.
ENCOURAGEMENT for those just starting, or who get AFRAID of this BIG MONSTROUS BUSINESS:
SHOOT! Just KEEP SHOOTING until you find you OWN DISTINCTIVE VOICE! NEVER let you image be MISTAKEN for SOMEONE ELSE'S. If you think it takes MONEY or TRAINING... you're HALF RIGHT. I've NEVER been TRAINED or SCHOOLED in ANY LEVEL of PHOTOGRAPHY... I love LOVE a PRETTY PICTURE. But a great MENTOR once told me, INVEST in the BEST EQUIPMENT you can to get the BEST SHOT!
Ok... that's all!
Let's make LOVE and ART!
