Photography is not always easy. The hours can be long, the travel can be grueling and the attrition rate is aggressive at best. I just read in Resource Magazine that after 3 years ONLY 15% have endured. A staggering 85% turnover rate. So, as I look back over my past 25 years in the business, I am blessed. Blessed to have worked for the likes of Avedon, Mapplethorpe, Newman, Horst and Tenneson, blessed by the wonderful clientele I have and the wonderful projects I get to shoot and blessed by the incredible opportunities to travel and see the world around me but, most of all, I am blessed by an incredible wife and two wonderful boys. I am very fortunate.
I hope that you, too, are equally blessed in this world and I wish my family a very happy and healthy Valentine’s Day with Lots of Love from Me.
