Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 


One of the things I love about photography is the community you can enjoy. Inside of the community are relationships and one that I really value is with Faran Najafi. He has mentored me over the years including studio set ups, lighting ideas, Lightroom workflows, creative layouts, etc. It is nice to have relationships where you are free to discuss your creative and technical ideas together.

Today we hung out and went through photo selection, sequencing and some camera body discussions as there is a new Phase One body out that seems significantly improved.

Pro tip: It feels good to have long term creative friendships. I learn but also share so they become special for both of us.
