I don't always post about personal things, but just wanted to share a couple of images from yesterday of the women in my life and the reason I picked up a camera.
See capturing those two young girls on the left playing soccer every Saturday about 9 years ago with my little point and shoot Kodak, yes I said point and shoot. Best of all I actually walked around the huge soccer fields with a monopod on it just like the big boys I waned to be like, Neil Leifer, Walter Looss, Brad Margin & Peter Read Miller.
Hit play and check out some of my handy work from 2007-Present.
Man......so yes looking at the video, its been a while I've been doing this. I know the Lord has me where I'm suppose to be and Im fine with that. I started doing my transition from "sports photographer" to event photographer when the girls I coached at the time were turning 15, and you already know what that means Quinceanera! So it was like "coach you take pictures, do you want to be a sponsor to my quince as the photographer?"
By then I had moved up to shooting with a Sony A100 with a kit lens & a flash. So naturally I was like yes! Below is one of my first images from a session for a quinceanera back in 2007. Man I had no clue what I was doing! Some would argue I still don't and that may be true but hustle always out does talent when talent doesn't hustle so I hustled my @ss off.
So I have a lot to be thankful for. The ladies in the first pic are the main reason Im thankful. For allowing me to document their life and by giving me a life that allows me to do what I love doing. So there is a small glimpse as to where and how I started photography.
