I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer enthusiast with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Leave me comments on my blog or send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.

Guess My Story Photography Game

April 10, 2021  •  Leave a Comment
A skill to practice is to tell a story with your photo. Do a search for people on social media with "storyteller" in the name and you will find many diverse and creative photos. Storytelling with photos can be fun and give you a different perspective. So how can we game-ify (is that a word) this into a game? Let's give it a try. Give me some feedb...

If you didn't notice I am moving my release date from Saturday at 00:01 to Thursday mornings at 8:45 AM. I am doing this to line up this blog post with my YouTube channel release date. I realized this was better when I created a video of what was "going" to be released days later after the blog post. So, to not have that happen in the future I line...

April 01, 2021  •  Leave a Comment
I am confident you have read many blog posts or posts on Pinterest on photo-a-day projects. They vary in length up to 365 days but with busy lives and full-time jobs, this is daunting, difficult, and probably not the place to start if you haven't tried this before. I help run a photography club that we like to create challenges from time to time. T...
