It’s rather funny really. Lately people are started to take notice of my work. They’ve started following me on social media, see my name pop up on their friends pages. These are people who have known me for years. A few of these people are starting asking the same question;
So what, suddenly you’re a photographer. When did that happen?
Let me start off by saying that just because you suddenly started to take notice does not erase my years of photography. I know I don’t go around bragging about what I do. For me its really more of a hobby. A side job, a passion. It is not how I make my living. I don’t go out looking for jobs that involve photography. I did not go to college and study the ways. I have however been taking photographs and learning what it takes to really get some good shots since I was in high school. This was not just some overnight whim. I did not just pick up a camera one day and say ‘hey is this thing for?’
Truth is I’ve been taking photos since I was a kid. One of my first cameras was a canon my father passed down to me when he was in college.
So please, before you question when I suddenly decided, go and google my name. You’d be surprised.
