Hello world. I am writing this today on January 1st of the year 2017. Its a brand new year and with this new year comes new challenges. GOOD challenges. I am a photographer by trade but I feel like I'm stuck in an artistic rut! I go to my weddings and just continue to get the same shots. Great shots, but I want more. More for my clients, but also more for myself. I've decided that with this new baby of a year I am going to do a 365 photography challenge. I looked up a bunch of ideas to try to get me moving in the right direction, but at the end of my googling I just said 'screw it' and am making my own challenge. 

Looking back over 2016 I realize that I did A LOT of really awesome things. Day to day I feel like I lead such a boring life, but really digging into my last year I realized that I am an idiot, and I did way more things and traveled way more places than most of my friends and family. The only problem is that I was really struggling to find good photos to basically prove to myself I had a great year. THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM! I do something everyday. Whether it be sit on my butt and watch netflix all day or go to a different state. So this challenge that I am given myself has but one rule: take a photo everyday. Take a bunch of photos everyday! Form the habit of grabbing my camera before I leave the house and take photos every single day. At the end of the day, take the best catch of the day and post it. I guess even though this is my first time blogging I will figure all this out along the way. 

So wish me luck on my journey to broaden my horizons, and I encourage anyone out there that is struggling artistically or just needs a fun hobby to do this 365 challenge. If you want to follow me on my journey, please feel free. On a side note I just wanted to point out that I misspelled "challenge" almost every time throughout this.

Took this photo with my tri-pod, and every time I tried to sit on the tree I would slide off!
