To The Max And Back. Getting My Legs Back Under Me.

Wow! Just when I think I can’t be pushed any more, I get pushed farther and have to dig into an even deeper well of resiliency. I have pivoted, reshuffled and back-tracked so many times over the years, I no longer know which way is north. I know there are people who have been through MUCH worse than I have. I — by no means — say that my situation is dire. But I’ve been through some shit lately. It’s […]

Lessons Learned. Sometimes, Things Just Run Their Course.

This past week was a nightmare. Actually the last year and a half has been an eclectic compilation of MANY nightmares. This will be a bit of a ranting session. Pardon me, in advance. My job has not been very kind to me and I have reached a point of surrender and resignation. The lessons have been learned. The resect has been lost and all that’s left is the parting of ways. I LOVE what I do for a living. […]

The Breaking Point And Why I Am Done With Twerkers

So—full disclosure—I love the female figure. I love the curves and dimples, the boobs and the ass. That smirky smile they give you when they know they’ve trapped you in that silky web they spin. Their eyes of love or possibility or  lust. Women are way more interesting TO ME to shoot. Much more so than men or children or cats and dogs or flowers or buildings… You know what I don’t like about the female figure? When it’s on […]

Closing The Year Out Strong… A Brief Reflection On 2016

It’s October. October is here already…!? Fuuuuuuck. Like a lot of people, I expected for 2016 to to my break out year. It started pretty strong with several shoots to get me ahead of my goal of a couple of shoots a month. Then it kinda — fizzled. I lost focus and the hustle disappeared. But, unlike many things I lose interest in, I decided this is too important to let go. I need to work harder. The same happened […]

My Mission To Be More Productive… And The Procrastination Chronicles

So I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how to become more productive and how to generate an income working fewer hours per day. My immediate goal is to double my salary (if not more) before noon every day. That’s what’s rattling around in my head right now. I got this message in my email from Tony at Coach.me and it links to this article that talks about the standard 8 hour work day and how “it takes [us] eight […]

An Idle Mind Is The Devil’s Playground

And the devil is hanging upside down from the monkey bars… Those who know me know that I run at a hundred miles a minute when I am inspired. But when that inspiration burns out, I am quick to abandon ship and search for a new fire. I am rapidly approaching that point. I got out of the gate quickly when it came to re-branding my photography. I am still excited to make it happen but I am having a […]

The Countdown Begins

My favorite event of the year is 4 weeks away and I am counting it down. Yes, the countdown to Otakon 2016 begins today! I have been attending Otakon for several years. I have never cosplayed or led a panel, but I have attended cosplay burlesque shows and the ever popular “WTF Did I Just Watch” on numerous occasions. I managed to accidentally take over a photography 101 panel a couple of years ago. My bad… Of all of the […]
