Personal Quote: More is good, all is better
Professional photography is sort of like owning a restaurant....I guess, I dont really know what it is like to own a restaurant but I do have a wife that cant stand to eat the same thing twice a year so I guess what I mean is you always have to be reinventing what you do, adding new dishes to the menu, and as I start to do such additions to expand the work that we do here I find myself more and more interested in different types of photography that I had not really considered in the past.

For instance I was never really interested in macro work until a client needed some super up close detail photos. I was never really interested in taking panoramic beyond the odd hand held snap across the horizon on vacation, until a client asked for super wide perspective images.

So as a certain United Nations representative with dual PhD's once told me, its necessary to reinvent oneself as you go along to get stuff done.

I guess this is a good start, though a far cry short of dual PhD's....or the UN......

Hi ! I just found out a few pictures in your gallery by chance, and then I kept exploring your gallery and I found out amazing gallery here. Your gallery is so much emotional and those pictures gave me so much feeling, especially about the poor and people live in the countryside. Thanks for your hard and amazing works. Keep going on and have a very very nice day : )
