During the 5 year pause of my career, I made an average of 8,000 photographs per year versus while I was working professionally the previous years I was averaging 20,000 photographs a year.
Out of all of those photos, you will only see my favorite shots on my sites totaling less than 100 images!
This is why I say “I had to shoot my way in”-to this business, and I when I stopped shooting and I was back out. What running these numbers represents is that I make photographs as a core part of my being, my passion, and my meditation.
Quick side notes the above numbers does not include iPhone photos, GoPro, and drone videos this is just photos that I hauled out my DSLR or film camera and intentionally photograph something or someone. Even when I am not paid for my work,
I want to create, I NEED to create. In times that I could not shoot for whatever reason, I still made something.
