Let's face it, there is no mystery in pointing your cell phone skyward and pressing the 'click' button to capture the 'I was there moment' and for some, that is more than enough to suit their photo needs.

After all, cameras are just tools and like any tool of a tradesperson - there is no such thing as the one perfect tool for every project. Creating a great photograph is a combined sum of many parts - the ability to understand the subject matter, then the ability to pick the right camera, lens and environment to create an image, all while producing consistent - exceptional results.

I'm also a Marine Veteran and cancer survivor, so my comfort zone may be a few bars higher than most, but I don't take any of that for granted. Take this ride with me and remember - 'You never how strong you are, until being strong is your only option.'
