I’m what you’d call a late bloomer; for many years I was fascinated with this art form, but never really experimented until as of late. A lot of you younger people out there amaze me.. with all the traveling, networking, and many connections that you make. It’s something special to find find ones calling, after years and years of always wondering; but it’s even more so for those who discover it at such a young age. I must admit, it can leave me feeling a bit jealous at times.. but never bitterness. The many hours, days, weeks and months put into planning and editing, can become quite daunting; but you put up with it because of your passion to create. This isn’t just some hobby for anyone with a camera; it takes many failures, and learning from those failures to make even the smallest of advancements(I still have much to learn). I tip my hat to you all and the beautiful work you display; because what I see leaves me feeling much more inspired than it does jealous.
