I recently purchased an amazing zoom lens that has been on my wish list. It took me a while to take the plunge, since the lens will in no way benefit my portraiture, but truth be told, portraiture is not the only thing I love about photography. I love it and it is my business, but I LOVE photography! I love being creative and remembering that I have personal projects that will not remain on the backburner. I have dreams, goals, and desires of my own when it comes to photography. And one of those is to do a project I plan to title "Catching Wind and Waves."
The pictures you are seeing are practice shots. When I get my project going, I will be sure to share and I will also get the stories of anyone participating. You see, I love the storytelling aspect of photography. I also love creating the images and actually writing the story of the subjects. This means more than just rolling by, seeing the kite surfers, and capturing some images. I want their stories. I want to know how they got started and why they do it - what they enjoy about the sport.
For now, enjoy my practice images. And if you know someone who may want to participate in my future project, be sure to send me a message or have that person contact me.
Photography, for me, isn't just a business. It has been a passion of mine for such a long time and I never want to lose that passion.
