Who I Am

Who am I? At first glance, it’s a simple looking question and seems equally simple to answer. Most often, I’ll start answering this question by listing off things about myself – my age, what I do for a living, how many children I have, and so on. But do those things truly define who I am?

What about my hobbies, interests and personality? Once I started thinking about this ‘simple’ question a little more, I quickly realized, it’s a lot more complicated than I thought – and I found it to be a difficult one to answer. I like to think that for the most part, I am a pretty easy person to get along with. I am generally a positive person to be around and I try not to judge anyone for the choices that they make or the beliefs that they subscribe to. I just treat everyone with the same respect that I would like to be treated with.

With that said, I am a 50 year old male with about 20 years experience in photography. I am very passionate about photography. When I am not doing photography I work in the information technology field. I love cooking (and eating) different types of food. I love kayaking, and gardening. There is no doubt that you will be seeing some pictures of my garden in my blogging. I will try and keep it mostly about photography.

Most of all I like helping others that also share the same passion for photography that I do. I do not mind sharing my insight and knowledge on photography.Every time I am taking photos, I come across other photographers and they start asking me, “How did you get that picture?”, “What settings did you use?” I have taken a lot of photos over the years and finally decided that this is the best way to share my work and my knowledge. Hopefully some of my knowledge will help someone on their journey in photography. I wish I had started this many years ago.

In conclusion,

Who I am is an always-changing, learning and evolving person. I have learned from my photography experiences. I apply them to my work  and they make me a better photographer. If I can help someone do the same in their photography journey then that just adds so much happiness to who I am as a person. If you have any questions like what kind of equipment to explanations on aperture, iso and white balance. I will give you an answer that is not based upon endorsements for camera manufactures. If you need someone that you can trust to capture the moment that is important to you, then I am you man. I leave you with this quote. “The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do”.
