Photography is my passion. I see the world through the lens of a camera. People tell me that I am missing out on the world because all I do is take pictures of it. They are so very wrong. I am capturing time. How many people can say that about their way of earning a living? That they can capture a single instant and have it live on, frozen for everyone to see? I could do that. To capture a sunset that will never happen again, or a completely one-of-a-kind snowflake, or the trees bending in the wind just so and make a living off of sharing this beauty with the world would be a dream come true. Being able to relive the kind of emotion that beauty makes one feel is an experience unlike any other. It is every photographer’s dream, including my own, to work for the magazine National Geographic. The photography that National Geographic produces is spellbinding. I would do what any photographer worth his salt would do. First, I would hone my skills by continuing with photography and digital imaging classes. Once I was confident in my abilities, I would put together the best portfolio I could muster and submit it to National Geographic. Finally, I would hope and pray that there is something about my photography that set it apart from the countless others attempting the same thing as I.
