Why all the fuss? For most of us, it’s not that big of a deal ... we grab our camera, turn it on, point at our subject and shoot. Pretty simple right? But if modern photography is that simple, and people are really so happy, then why all the photography books, classes, workshops and seminars? Why then, in a world were technological advancements have made capturing an image easier than making a cup of coffee, do we still want more? The answer is simple: pride. We’re missing it ... and we have to get it back.

The Artist in You

There are millions of artists out there who may not be able to paint, sculpt, play a musical instrument, work with wood or bend metal — but my guess is, they have a camera. Until now their voices have laid unheard, their messages silent. But no more. A new vision of photography has sprung forth, one of expressionism instead of record keeping, one of pride in accomplishment instead of correcting a mistake. This blog, its authors and its followers are firm believers in 'artist over equipment'. What you see here comes from the artists heart and his compromised vision. It comes from months and sometimes years of practice. They have persistence unmatched. These images reflect their creator and not just his surroundings. These images are about his heart — and nothing more.

NOTE: The images shown on this blog are true. Created by an artist and not his machine. No auto modes were ever used, no manipulations are allowed and no machine or program will ever be touted on this blog or in any of our other Web sites..
