Photographers: Never let someone crush your dream!

There is no day that goes by that I don’t think how fortunate I am that I didn’t listen to all the people who told me that it was impossible or thank the people who never believed in me. I want to shake the hands of the people who doubted me kiss the cheeks of the ones who rooted for my demise. Thank you to the doubters, the cynics, the none believers, and the skeptics.  We measure success in numbers in eye balls and in the weight of the masses that follow you.

 Thought carries no weight you cant measure an idea when you dedicate your life to something its not work, its not even effort, is flows through you like the oxygen you require to exist.The weight of the masses charges you a hefty price. The penance if your creativity.


I have spent the majority of my life creating things. When I started, they told me I was crazy, touted over and over again it will never work. When it worked they told me it was luck, their contrition was their praise, before I was a maker, I was a watcher and I watched with great affections and undying support for people who dedicated their lives to what they loved.

Not for money, not for fame, but for that feeling you get in the split second of creation. Photography is the all-seeing all knowing all-consuming love of my life. Our relationship was a struggle at first, but then as we grew together so did our bond so did our love for one another, now, nothing can break us nothing can tear us apart.

This is for the rebels the risk, takers, the dream makers, for all who stand in the face of their enemies and say yes, yes I can, yes I will, This for the ones thinking they can’t or they won’t for the scared, for the unknown, this is for you, this is for me, this is so we can all be free, one life, one goal. May you achieve your dreams, plant you feet on the moon and look up to the stars.

A photograph is taken in the blink of an eye but it’s made over a life time.
