Sometimes I think I take photography for granted. Maybe it's because It's been a part of my life as long as I can remember. Or perhaps because shooting has become second nature for me; something I don't even think about anymore because it's always there. Going through images and content for my upcoming workshop has really got me thinking. About my journey with photography. About what it means in my life. About how accessible it has become. About the lifelong process I have engaged in to become not only a better photographer, but a better person. I absolutely cannot imagine my life without a camera.
How lucky we are to have the ability, the power, to document our lives with a tool that demands our focus on the present moment while at the same time ensures that we're preserving that moment for a lifetime. What an incredible gift.
Thank you, photography, for always being my creative companion, my co-conspirator, my clarity and my window to this beautiful world.
If you'd like to continue to cultivate your own photography journey, my friend @danielle.s.cohen & I will be in Portland on Saturday, April 1 leading a workshop. We would love to be a part of your journey and you with ours. (Link in profile)
Isn't photography grand?
