A good picture is like a good book. It leaves the viewer yearning for a new experience or fills them with nostalgia. The key to taking good photos–and writing good stories–lies in forging emotional bonds with the audience, and satisfying a need that viewers might not have even fully realized.
I created this site so I would have a place to hone my own skills, but I also hope that my photography journey inspires others to take the same chance I’m taking. It doesn’t have to be photography; just try that thing you’ve always sort of wanted to do in the back of your mind, but kept putting off for whatever reason. Try something new. Make mistakes and learn from them. Then come back here and tell me about it.
