Why I won’t stop taking pictures.

My daughter asked me this week- “Why do you take so many photos all the time?”

Because art and beauty is worth committing your life to it.

Art is worth the HOURS, years, decades to learn the craft and practice it DAILY.

They say 20,000 hours is minimum for becoming an “expert” - that’s 6 years at least of dedication.

Art is healing.

After the years- I’ve met so many people that have told me that photography/art is their therapy- their connection to beauty- their self care etc.

Photos to me are preserving my legacy-

We are making core memories that 20 years from now you will see all your life completely documented when I’m done.

Because I love it- I enjoy it and if I get money from it from others that enjoy my art- that’s a bonus.
