I had always said I wanted to be a photographer... It took me a very long time to do so. But a dream is a dream and those don't need to be acted on right away in my mind... So long as they are acted on sometime in your life. My entrance into photography truly stared when I was in my early teens. I loved it but also loved hanging out with friends, playing in an awesome band, snowboarding, hiking, adventuring and the eternal trial of attempting to talk to females (attempting being the key word). Sadly photography was on the back burner until after I had turned 30. Once I got my first DSLR my life has truly been different somehow... I am much more relaxed, things seem to flow a little smoother, I feel as though I have picked up on something that I was supposed to have picked up. It certainly isn't easy for me but I don't mind learning and getting bad shots with the good. Once my mind was into it, Everything seemed to work with me rather than against. It has been about 5 years now since my mind has been into it and I don't see it going away at any time. It is something wether professional or not, I will have a camera near me for the rest of my life. This way my sons and their sons and theirs, will be able to see the life I have lived and what I saw through my lens.
