Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a Legacy

My father was my first mentor.  He helped me see things from a different perspective and his teaching largely shaped me into the person I am today.  I learned much from him and have always appreciated the time he took to instruct me about things like gratitude, persistence, encouragement, and hope.  

My adult life has largely been filled with employing the lessons my father taught me.  A few years ago, I changed careers.  It wasn’t as though I suddenly woke up one day and said, “I think I’ll buy a camera and become a photographer.”  Photography has always been a passion of mine. From a very young age, I was viewing the world through the lens of a camera.  My great-grandfather was one of the first portrait photographers in our county.  Many of his descendants have pursued the art of painting with light.  However, being a photographic portrait artist is not an ability you are born with.  There is much to the business of interactively using light and shadow and drawing out the inner person into the image you create.  

I have been blessed to have new mentors in this particular endeavor.  This past year, I have met several times with some of the best photographic portrait artists in the nation.  I am thankful for their dedication to teaching others and sharing some of what they’ve learned. Being a portrait artist is one of the most gratifying jobs around.  There is really no better way to spend a day than to create something that will be treasured for decades!
