I am a lover of life and father of two! I'm finally learning to slow my pace in life and simply enjoy the beauty that surrounds us all. Photography is a great avenue to express my love for life and the great outdoors. I am not a lifelong professional photographer that knows everything there is to know. I'm a beginner that just so happens to be getting better each and every day.
Living a Full Life
Never have I, nor will I ever, claim to be something I am not. I'm a good ole boy that has a passion for life. I'm not always politically correct. I believe in old fashioned ways. I think life was better way back when. I believe that life is what you make it. Mostly, it's about perception. There are those who believe that life sucks. I can tell you that it most likely does, if that's the way you choose to perceive it. For me, life is great! It sure beats the alternative!
As a police officer for over 14 years, I've witnessed how fragile life is. It can be over in the blink of an eye. Never take a single day or opportunity for granted. Live each day as if it's your last. It will be one day!
We can all agree that one day, we will wish for one more day. Whether you see it or not, today is that one day you will one day wish for. Now that you have it, how do you choose to spend it?
In my life, I've made great money and I've made very little. I've learned that if you are broke making 30k a year, you will be broke making 100k a year my friend. Perception!
Don't take yourself too seriously! That's one thing I've learned from my past. Years of being "tough" has taught me to be yourself. I'm confident enough to ninja kick a bumble bee right in the teeth if I need to, but any other time... You might catch me working on my posing techniques like the second image on the left ;)
