So I've been told countless of times that I should be doing a blog as well as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. It's sad to say that even though I see all the values of having one ... well OK I'll be honest, I am just a little lazy. OK a lot lazy. Blogs take up a lot of your time and effort. But I was planning a major revamp on my site anyways, so I figured - what the hell I'll give it a shot. I guess going forward I will be doing blogs on my future shoots, past shoots, lessons learned and whatever else comes my way. At least that is the plan, don't be surprised if this doesn't last too long haha.
In all seriousness though, I wanted to find a platform where I could not only share my photos but also share my thoughts not just to the world but more importantly to myself as well. I guess I want to use this blog as a place for me to speak to myself to let me know how I really felt about the shoot, about my performance, my subject, and my over all setup. As a photographer, I am always learning and there is no better teacher than experience.
I realize this may not be the best blog to use as a marketing tool or for self promotion. And I am OK with that. I want this space to be a place for future models, clients, and partners to know who I really am, what I go through, how I've grown, and what I have become. This blog will come from a place of honesty, not just to you the readers, but to myself as well.
I believe that photography is an intimate experience between the photographer and the subject. For a successful experience, there needs to be a bond of trust, fellowship, and partnership with everyone involved. For many, this will be the first step towards that.
