These days when I’m in San Antonio, I never really know how to feel about how to spend my free time. I was in San Antonio a few days ago and wanted to take a nap after my shoot. As I laid down, I got a text from my best friend Mikey saying I should hang out with him at an event he was performing at.
The buzzwords I’m concerned about these days with regards to myself are personal brand and influencer.
If I were to travel back in time and tell my younger teenage self that I’d live to be this old, my younger self would laugh and tell myself to fuck off. Lol.
I love creating beautiful looking portraits. But the heart of what I do is just documenting people as they are and how I see them and the world around me.
I’ve begun to start to talk more about my start of becoming a photographer lately because I’m no longer ashamed of myself. I’m also finding that people find my story intriguing. A really long story cut short, I wanted to be a rockstar.
How I’m saving time and money by easily tracking my business miles to claim on my taxes using an app called MileIQ. It tracks them automatically, so I never forget.
Photography pulled me out of a really bad depression. That’s a story for another time. But the point I wanted to make in this post is that photography deep down still keeps me out of depression.
This year, we ventured off of our normal traditions. Life has been weird this year for me. Lots of new transitions and things to go through. I had a really busy wedding season this past fall and I was in literal constant work-mode and travel-mode.
I wanted to share the new folder structure I’m currently working on to better utilize Lightroom’s collections and keywords to keep all my years of photography work organized in one catalog.
I like that I now have a home on the internet for all my personal photography that isn’t wedding related. So in celebration of that, here’s some photos of my friends Michael J & The Foxes performing a few days ago.
