It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I believe that the best photos should leave a person completely speechless, in awestruck from the beauty or meaning of the image. And if that picture is so outstanding, it can have the power to change a person (or maybe even the world) by letting them experience the image vicariously. It should take the observer to that exact place and time, making them feel as if they are actually there.
My passion is photography, and you’re almost always guaranteed to find me out-and-about on the hunt for that epic shot. That once-in-a-lifetime snap. Many people think that photography is too complex for them, and that they can’t learn how to use the tools. With many different types of cameras and accessories to go along with each one, it can be difficult and frustrating in the beginning.
My dream would come true if I could make a living by teaching these people how to properly use the equipment, so that they feel comfortable enough to go out by themselves and capture beauty. Show them that photography is a way to express yourself through pictures, and that you don’t have to be a professional to take an outstanding image. I want to be able to help others capture images that will not only leave others speechless, but also let them experience it vicariously. I want to share my passion with others by showing them that their photography can change the world.
