And I love making photographs.
I do—it’s true! And sometimes I even include fun stories when I post them. Everything on this site (other than the quotes, of course) is absolutely me—the photographs, the paintings, the designs, the lot of it. If there is ever anything I didn’t create featured on this site, I’ll be sure to let you know.
This project is where I expel a great portion of my creative energy, but I assure you I still have plenty to spare. Another project I am working on is called weakSauce[opinion]. It’s a political cartoon that is published regularly in our local newspaper. Other creative outlets upon which I heavily lean include painting, drawing, writing, and performing stand-up comedy.
Feel free to submit questions if you have any. Provided they are interesting, funny, insightful, or entertaining enough, I will answer them and post the answer here. Lastly, feel encouraged to comment on, “like,” and discuss my work using the Disqus and Facebook plug-ins.
Never ask for permission to smile!
What is Project365?
I heard about Project365 long before I bought my first camera, back before my interest in photography became more than interest. The idea is simple: take a photo every day, post it, comment on it, and develop your talent as you go. There is a lot of pressure attached (coming up with unique shots every day, picking what to post, how to process, who’s going to see it, etc.) and the idea is that this pressure is what helps you grow as a photographer.
While I certainly hoping to “develop my talent” as a photographer, I am also looking at this project as an interesting way for my friends and family to stay current on my personal life—right here on the worldwide web. I will be the first person to tell you that I’m terrible at keeping in touch with people. Abominable, others might say, but they’re jerks. In any case, I want to make a change.
My plan is that I can commit time here, and allow those who wish to keep in touch to use this as a medium to do so. Every day for a year I will make photos (of everything from people to things), post small stories, and give anyone who cares to peek a not-so-surface-level glance at my daily happenings.
We’ll see how it goes.
