New Look!!!

I'm feeling pretty accomplished today as I was able to release my new logo for my new look across the interwebs. I've had the idea for some time since my last logo was a hastily done on my part. I put a lot of time and thought into this one and got a lot of help from friends and family!

What A Week!

Talk about a rough week! I wish I could have a redo but this time not get sick, and when I say sick, I mean sick. I can't even remember the last time I was this sick. That's why I haven't been keeping up with this like I would like to but I have either been laid up in bed or on the recliner and the blog was a total after thought.

20 Year Class Reunion

Don't ask me why but this morning I woke up feeling in a somewhat nostalgic mood. I can't explain it but I followed it and got me to thinking even more about an impending anniversary that I honestly can't believe is really upon us, our 20th year class reunion; shout out to class of '97!!!

Road Trip!!!

This past weekend the wife and I went on little road trip to catch a Breaking Benjamin concert. This was kind of a surprise thing from her. I say kind of because she didn't want me to be surprised when I saw the bill and had to pay for it without telling me. LOL

"High Fidelity" style Top 5's

How many of you have seen the movie High Fidelity? I think it's a pretty good movie that I take away the music more than the romantic comedy part from it. Jack Black does a phenomenal job in it and I would say that it is the movie that arguably made his career. The other part that I take way, and why I am referencing it, is the Top 5 lists the create on various music topics, hence why I think I like it more for the music than the romantic theme. I like the movie so much that I actually own the soundtrack in CD format. LOL

So. Damn. Difficult.

This is one of those blogs where it is strictly my opinion and it is emotionally charged so it is probably wrong. That's OK because hopefully it is a conversation starter as well as me just being able to vent to clear my head.

Business NOT as Usual

For a very long time I have prided myself on being a quality and customer satisfaction driven photographer. Was I perfect? ABSOLUTELY not! But I have learned from my mistakes and feel like I have continually gotten better in both areas. My work has improved over the years, at least I'd like to think so, and me paying attention to clients or prospective clients wants and needs has also come a long way. I also take time to try to educate clients on how some things work or won't work and why, without getting too winded or boring. OK, winded probably happens but that is just who I am. LOL

"All My Friends"

What a great birthday weekend!!! Lot's of amazing food made by my wife; lots, I mean LOTS of adult beverages; and the kind of surprise lunch/brunch with my friends, it's the thought that counts for sure. I'm super grateful and blessed to be so lucky to have met some really amazing people in my life to help celebrate the good times and pick me up when I get knocked down.

Aye, Shawty, It's Your Birthday

OK, well maybe it isn't yours but today is mine. I had a stellar weekend and was able to celebrate with some really great people. Lot's of food, adult beverages, and sort of a surprise lunch; it's the thought that counts. LOL

The Deed Is Done

Some days you feel like your the bat and some days you are the ball. Far too many of my days I have spent feeling like the ball and I'm over it. I've taken steps, now, that I will have no one else to blame but myself and my own actions. What is all of this about?

Let's Jump!

If you don't know, I'm kind of a Facebook fanatic. Sure it has it's downside with all of the negative, hyper-political, and shamming posts that you will come across or see day-to-day; but it can also have a very positive use. Staying connected to family; connecting with friends from your childhood; and every once in awhile you will find a "diamond in the rough" posts or people that reminds you that there are good people in the world that do want to see you succeed in life.

I have a total appreciation for succeeding and overcoming adversity. It makes the accomplishment that much more rewarding. I'm not afraid of a challenge, I just don't like when things aren't as cut and dry as I think they SHOULD be.

She Tried to Hide the Evidence

My wife works a lot of hours, I mean a lot. Typically she is out the door and on her way before 0600 and usually doesn't get home until after 1700, or 5PM for you civilians. LOL We also don't live close to her job so she either has to take lunch or she can choose from a variety of fast food restaurants near where she works. Well the other day she decided she would go eat at a local eatery.

So is the Life

After leaving for the Army I have lived in almost every possible living situation you could. I have lived in barracks, an apartment in Korea where the landlord didn't speak a lick of English and the only Korean I knew was slang or enough to get me home in taxi, an apartment, rented a house, owned a house, and have been living in on post housing our last duty station and this, our most recent assignment.

My Shameless Self Promotion

This blog, as new as it is to me, is not my only way of communicating with people that follow my work. I use just about all of the mainstream social media platforms and I try to use each one in different way.

How It All Started

Like I stated in my first blog, I am currently in the process of setting up my photography business where I live. This is a very nerve wracking time for me. I'm not very good with change but this is a HUGE change for me and my family. Maybe I'm making it into something that is bigger than it really is? If that is the case then this all should be easy peasy once I really get going.


Welcome to my first ever blog. Yes I have Facebook; yes I run a couple of Facebook Pages related to my photography; yes I have Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Snapchat. If I have all of that then why do I need to do this blog? I wanted something, or somewhere, I could dedicate to my feelings, thoughts, and experiences.
