As a photographer, I have a love/hate relationship with light.  I think my work speaks to it - more specifically to my love of shadows, darkness and mystery.  That said, every now and then, I find myself drawn to shooting with light, sometimes lots of it, sometimes natural.  

I used to struggle when I ventured out of the darkness and into the light.  It felt like I was betraying who I was, and, the thing I'd become known for...and then, one day, someone pointed out that this discomfort was good.  It meant I was challenging myself.  

So, why not celebrate these polarities with a couple shots, one that is full of light, to the point of being almost blown out...and another in my more natural, subtle style.  And, now for the confession - in time, I've learned to love them both.

December Ramblings As 2018 approaches, I've decided to (at least for now) make a more concerted effort around my website...and by more concerted I mean to actually post content, use it to engage fans, provide useful information, and, for shits and giggles, make it the place where the majority of my content lands.

Part of this 'revamp' is likely some sort of blog, and, if the journey of a million miles begins with one step, the journey to more engaged fans begins with a single blog post.

Now, given I'm not entirely an idiot, I realize, my random musings are entertaining, but, most of you are here to see, this blog stands to be a place where fans may also want to begin to look to see content that doesn't show up elsewhere.

So, in that vein....I give you blog post number one.  

Thoughts?  Comments?
