I embrace big challenges. And as I strive to summit to the culmination of my efforts for the past year, I couldn't be more gratified, elated, and filled with so much optimism!
With my new website, comes many new opportunities of editing and publishing, challenging me to think outside of the picture. I recently added my entire collection of photographs to my library and was shocked at the sheer number (in the five digits range, in just nine months)! This just goes to prove how much I love what I do, and that I do it for the passion and vision of its end product. I just get excited knowing that I can capture a moment, and share exactly what I envision with others through such an artistic, and literal, sense.
All of this couldn't have come together at a much better time, than the start of a new year. I started 2013 off by taking a trip out to the Olympic Peninsula; we left a little late for the 4+ hour trip - but did happen to catch the polar bear plunge happening in Edmonds before hopping on the ferry! All in all, timing couldn't have ended more perfectly, because I spent some much needed bonding time on the beach with my camera, and took these fantastic shots just as the sun had set. What makes me really excited is that shortly before the end of 2012 I discovered the world of RAW and began shooting solely in this format. I could not be more pleased with the results; like they say - once you go RAW you never go back!
