Photography Passion

Ever since I can remember I have loved art. I dabbled in different types of art: drawing, guitar, even some singing. But I was never able to find something I was even exceptional at...
   For the last year I've developed a deep passion for photography and film, especially dealing with weddings. Perhaps its related to my fascination I've had since I was a kid with fantasy. Weddings are real magic to me. They are beautiful, romantic, and real...
   Yet I digress...So all my life I've told myself I wasn't good enough. I honestly have always thought that what I loved and enjoyed most, I could never do. Countless times I've looked at photography and watched short films that moved me to tears. And it would break my heart to think I could never achieve that. My thoughts were "I don't have the time, money, and especially not that talent."
   Then last year I went to an art exhibit at BYU-Idaho. There was a piece that sent the message across that self-motivation and perseverance could rule out negativity, doubt, and excuses. I guess it took nearly eight months for that seed of a thought to bloom. But bloom it has! I've decided I'm going to go for it! I love photography and film. It is art. It is magic. And it is my passion!

My digital photography class begins Saturday and I look forward to sharing my work with you!

Thank you so much for the support of my family, friends, and photographers I look up to. I can't explain how much your support means to me. Thank you a thousand times.
