Hey! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time. First let me say this, I am not a photographer… I have a camera and I like to take photos. I like to show people how I see things and to find a new perspective. Not only physically, but to also entertain a new point of view.
I purchased my first REAL camera back in 2013, used, and a Nikon. Yes, I am #teamnikon. LOL, but seriously it was THE best investment that I could have made. Wrapping up a divorce, co-parenting, politics, community and just life as a bi-racial man in #omaha, I needed an escape.
When the weather was nice or the best riding season, I would ride my motorcycle everywhere, and I do mean everywhere. Lake of the Ozarks, South Padre Island or even just to the river bank for the day. When I ride, my phone, emails, stress would just be gone. It was me, Muddy Waters flowing and the wind. So, when I couldn’t go do that, I needed a replacement. Being still, technical and earbuds in, allotted me all of what I needed. Honestly, the best part is when I tell my story of where ‘I was’ when I took the pictures. A journal, if you will…
I have never sold one photo, nor have a I tried, but I went out on a limb and scared myself to do this. I have heard for years that people wanted to see that ‘real’ side of me, and not just the corporate & political version, but the one that laughs, cries and at times, love fancy rum way too much!
