Inspiration Comes Early

May 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Growing up, I lived in a rural town in South-Central Pennsylvania.  In our one-traffic-light town, we had to find our own entertainment regularly, so one of my favorite pastimes was playing dress up and having photo shoots.  I have hundreds of pictures from my middle school and high school days when my friends and I would find the most outrageous clothes - from bathing suits to hoop skirts - and try things on.  Then we would set up our own styled shoot and take rolls and rolls of pictures (for you millennials, I realize you don't understand that term - rolls refer to film.  :P ).  Most never turned out very well, but we have a few that aren't too bad. 

Participating in these activities gave me the first inkling that being a photographer was something I was interested in pursuing.  However, getting out of such a small town was a bigger priority, so I decided to join the military instead. 

15 years later, I'm finally getting my business off the ground.  I've been in business for 3 years now, but it has only been recently that things are starting to fall into place.  I have a family, I work full time, and I promote my photography as time|energy|life allows.  I find inspiration in various things, whether it is kids, landscapes or wildlife.  I don't see those early friends anymore and rarely do we talk.  We've all spread out across the country, but I still have our memories - and our photographs - from way back when. 

Inspiration can come in any form.  All you have to do is look.  :)
