Aside from photography I have had too many hobbies to list, my best friend as my life partner and 4 magical little critters called children. Like hobbies, I have too many jobs to list. I currently spend my days working as a plumber in addition to going to school for my Master Plumbers License. It is a position that puts bread and butter on the table while doing as little harm as possible to another. I am a child of God in a world of capitalism. Life in general, what more could I ask for? My cup is overflowing with abundance in the things I need and fairly shallow in the things I want.
I have been shooting with the intention of mindfulness since September 2012. I have a Nikon S9300 that I love, best $135 I have ever spent. I have the goal of upgrading to a full frame DSLR, but i’m a dad of 4. I am comfortable with someday, besides, this has become quite a fun game of fighting materialism and just creating. My portfolio on here represents some of my shots from the last year and half that I was given while at My Church…Nature.
Are my pictures any good? Probably to some. Are my pictures bad? Probably to some. I am just grateful to be able to create and thankful for all those that share in the moment. Photography helps me make sense of a world pursuing to be balanced between light and dark, but not always so accomplished. Photography gives me presence of mind as I play so many roles in the grand play of life. Photography helps me look normal while walking in circles in the public’s eye. Photography helps those circles make sense in a sea of confusion. I am grateful for the gift of Photography and even more that others get to share in these moments. [Official Website]
