New story entry
Declare your independence from other people 's vision! Express yourself and create photographs that show what you feel. In July 1995 I declared my independence from Academia and from being the instrument of someone else's vision. I never looked back. Happy 4th of July!
I now have a page featuring the pieces of my story published so far. You can see it at this link.
Yesterday I posted a photograph of our life in Chinle, Arizona. This is part of our story. As I said I will have more about our story here in the coming weeks.
What is your story? Knowing and telling your story is important because it contains your vision for what you want to achieve in your photography. This is one of the many things I teach in my new Personal Vision Mastery Workshop on DVD. Focusing my work and my life on my vision has changed my life and my work. It can change yours too.
July Print of the Month
New front page photograph: We all start somewhere. This is where Natalie and I lived and the truck we drove when we started our photography business on the Navajo Reservation in Chinle, Canyon de Chelly, in 1998. We call it 'la boheme' in French.
