Passion is a business

No matter what your passion is, it’s apart of someone’s business. Eventually most of us want to make our passions apart of our work/business. The thing is sometimes money gets in the way. You may not produce the work you dont like because the client likes it or you’ll simply do work for money. 

Or you may just lose your passion after being fired, laid off, etc. We must ask ourselves why we started our work and what our passion truly means to us. We can’t allow anyone to take our passions away from us. 

I’m a big time basketball fan and d-league hopeful. Recently, my hometown team traded a superstar calibur player. He came back here to say goodbye and it was amazing to see the emotion he exposed as he choked on his words. The team used him as an escape goat for all their problems but he is not letting that ruin his passion for playing basketball nor for helping the people of this city. 

I’m sure he told himself it’s just how we do business. No matter the odds never lose your passion and keep charging on.

This photo was taken in downtown Sacramento at night. I was about to get in my car when I turned around to see this. I uploaded a black and white image but today I show it without editing. I wanted to capture the spirit of the team and the hotel that was showing the teams logo on its side. I love the lights on the top and all the colors that don’t seem to be overbearing. I’m trying to evolve as an artist and photographer. I will be attempting not to make all my images black and white. It will be a challenge but one I must take to improve.

Aim higher than the moon,

A Beautiful Night

There’s nothing like staring up at the stars. Sadly, there wasn’t any that appeared due to the lights. But often when I am in the countryside or in phoenix I love to stare at the stars and truly think. It’s relaxing to me, It heloed me get through some pretty tough times when I was much younger. 

So on a fine evening I take photos of  the sky especially when there are trees in the shot. I enjoy the way nature looks in black and white. My photo appears hollow in a way as if it gives off the impression of drowning in darkness. I wanted to express this feeling with this shot. As well as if nothing good is around you, you can always get lost in what’s above you. 

Keep your head up,

Explore your world

I’m talking about the environment around you. Explore every depth of where you live even if you been there before. You may discover something new or something you always wanted to capturr but never had your camera. Never complain that you have nothing to shoot thats a damn lie. Shoot old subjects from different angles. Take shots you normally wouldn’t explore different niches.

For instance, I mainly do street but I capture a lot of architectural shots but I venture into abstract, fashion, nature, Industrial, and portrait photography. My main focus is architectural but I capture whatever shot I have a story for. 

The night was young and beautiful as I explored the depths of downtown. The Tower Bridge shined marvelously as me and my family peered to the sky as the day closed. 

Venture into the outside world (be careful),
