As this is my first blog on Photo Blog, I thought perhaps a few examples of the type of images I truly love to shoot and have shot would be a good way to start the new year. My goal this year is to shoot more of the Southern landscapes and beloved horses and carry my cameras with me on a more regular basis and find pleasure once again in the freedom of pointing my lens.
I love to roam the Southern countryside and always try to find places that I say to myself "a shot lives there" and make notes on when to come back and work the scene. In this hectic workaday world and "working" photographs for weddings and lifestyle sessions is what pays a photographer's bill. It's fun, exciting, and I love what I do, but sometimes creativity can be stifled when photography becomes a job. My goal is to learn how to merge the best of all photography work and still be inspired to go out and look for images.
I am a lifetime animal lover. Horses, dogs, and cats are my speciality as I have much knowledge on the care and psychology of those creatures, however, I love to photograph them all. I love to incorporate animals and people into landscapes. I think something breathing in a landscape is the ultimate goal. To me it truly makes the image come alive. I like to find ways to ensure I have a human or animal form or even sometimes a magnificent tree can make it work. A landscape to me is best when a living form is inside.
As the title of this blog suggests..perhaps my past images can help me find my future images. It's time to start the journey afresh !
