on my way..

So as I begin this journey into the world of semi pro photography, I can’t help bet to think about how I got to this point.

Since this is my blog and I can basically say what ever I like, I will quickly talk about my creative side.

I would look in awe at the great landscapes of Ansel Adams and I wanted to be able to capture the beauty of the world around me and share it with others.  I really wanted a digital camera because I was beginning to notice that film would be a thing of the past in the coming years.

I got my 1st digital camera as a Christmas gift from my mother in 2003.  It was a FugiFilm FinePix 2.o mp photographic beast.  I loved my little camera and captured hundreds of images of my hometown of Robbins, Il.  It wasn’t full of breathtaking landscapes, but it was a great place to capture images of both hope and despair.

Not long after that I began working with digital and graphic design.  I took some classes to learn more about photoshop, illastrator, and video editing. Of course I stepped my camera game up. I ran a successful t-shirt business (Kool Joe Kustoms) for quite some time while also working as an event photographer.

I have made hundreds of shirts and taken thousands of photos.  Now in 2012, I am going to take it to the next level.  I have a new DSLR, a mastery of social media, and a eagerness to build something that brings joy to myself and others.
