Photographers take photos for all kinds of reasons. Regardless of the genre all do so out of the desire to capture on film (or jpg) what they see and experience. For me the reason for taking photos stems out of the way I’m wired. I have a tendency to be very sentimental and nostalgic. I’m the kind of guy who thinks “this is the last time we’ll be at this beach on vacation….this is the last time we’ll come to this grocery store….and so on.” Tina had no idea what she was getting herself into when she married me.:-)
From this love of the moment comes my love for photography. I see life as a series of moments, ones that we’ll only get to experience once. Whether it’s the grandness of a wedding or party or the simplicity of a few hours on the beach…they can all live on forever through photography. This is why I love photography!
