It all began in the year 2005. In fact, it was in the month of May when I decided that I wanted to do something different. I was always adventurous but as a 23-year-old in 2005, I took the path less taken or the road less traveled. However you wish to word it. I wanted to travel and learn new things and I certainly did that.
Now that I’ve been home for nearly two years. I’m ready to do it again. I want to explore the USA, take photos, and write about my experiences hoping to inspire a generation to not settle and see more of the world. How can I do it? I’m not entirely sure. I just know that I have the desire and skills. I think that is the fun of it all. Having a starting point and knowing which direction you want to go. Then just figure it all out as you go.
Perhaps, it all begins with exploring closer to home, saving money, and self-funding explorations. Then seeing what happens from there. I do know that there are plenty of photo opportunities in my “backyard” and I enjoy getting out and capturing the beauty around me. As I told my 23-year-old self all those years ago, I know there is more out and I want to see it.
I guess in a way that is why I started my shop on this website and I recently started offering my prints for sale on an Etsy shop I created as a way to use those funds I earn from picture sales to see more of the USA.
I’m more excited about seeing various parts of the country and incorporating my subscribers into it. Again, I’m not sure how at the point. I just know this is bigger than myself.
