Stay Humble Always

 

I have come across many photographers on this journey of mine, and to each their own.  I have come to accept that everyone gets into photography for their own reason and/or purpose.  Some may be righteous and others not, however whom am I to judge them?  In my opinion I let them live and let live, it is not place to put them down for they have their own journey to pursue.

 

I have found however that some photographers are money driven, others are Ego driven, some use it as a means to be worshiped or idolized,  while others just do it to document their experiences and to  capture life.  Some refuse to work with others, they keep their distance and wont get close to anyone while some reside on a self inflated cloud in their minds believing they are greater than they are.

 

I on the other love to work with other photographers, I love to shoot with them, explore with them and bond with them. I love to inspire others as they inspire me so that together we grow and learn from one another.  I am not here to compete nor here to be idolized or worshiped but rather merely to exist.  I am here to make friends, to document my life, to create new memories and to merely continue on my journey as God wishes.

 

With that being said, stay humble, be true to yourself and remember that our words and actions indeed have weight. Use them wisely and try not to be a egotistical jerk, because in the end that will cause you to lose your reputation and quite possibly your following and  friends.

Standing among legends – Clyde Butcher & Lucky Cole


 
Clyde Butcher & Lucky Cole
 
These are the two photographers who have inspired me to venture forth into the Glades, they indeed are both legends. Clyde Butcher is an amazing passionate soul who captures the very essence of nature in its purest form. His Black & White photography is known across the world as is his passion for what he does. Lucky Cole is known for his beautiful, soft nude photos of adult models from all ages and walks of life. He loves what he does, to him capturing the angelic form of a nude woman is one of the greatest blessing of life.
 
I am eager to learn from them as they have inspired me along the way and have supported my photography wholeheartedly.
