I don't think anyone finds it easy to talk about or to describe themselves.  I think it's just that more difficult when you're asked to talk about your work experience.  In photography the work is visual and subjective.  If someone has studied the medium I find that the person usually finds a deeper meaning in whatever they are viewing.


I rarely read About Me pages because personally they read like a Cliff Notes page that everyone has read about, what an About Me page, should say.  Or they're inflated braggery leaving out the part about the day-job.  Sometimes they're informative as they should be, but basically, basic. This makes me right off, want to start my page with light-hearted humor; like I'm a Pisces, I think climate change is real, I simultaneously follow and break the rules, and I don't do drama. Then I think TMI and that this might not go over well because one has to know someone to get their humor or their ire.  Then I remember why I created my site.

This is my website where I let my creativity run wild. I shoot and post what I like, and not necessarily what I think my visitors might like.  Perfection doesn't interest me.  Don't get me wrong, when I shoot, and develop my film, I am on Photoshop cropping images, and eliminating dust, but I shoot the image that I want  in-camera; it's not the by-product of a digital wash.

This site is a film photography website.  I learned photography in manual mode and on film. I still feel the ever present mix of excitement, and of fear while working in total darkness producing negatives and  images. I also like and use Instagram for inspiration I can quickly view what the world looks like to others. Still reading about me? Then I thank you for being interested in my photographic eye, and learning a little bit about me. 

Thank you for viewing.
