I'M THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE PLANET. Bold statement? Not from where I’m positioned. This little black box made of metal and glass literally snatched me off the streets of Brooklyn, and introduced me to the world. By age twenty-four I had; 4 continents, 11 equator crossings, and the opportunity to sail through the Straights of Magellan under my belt. Literally saving me from the seemingly enticing pitfalls synonymous with inner-city life.
Humbly speaking, I can chalk up a good portion of my personal values, and who I am today to the positive influences and interactions with the people I've met along the way. Literally priceless. However, it's the life lessons that are subsequently infused through the use of the camera that I'm most thankful for.
Over the years, photography has taught me the importance of perspective. More specifically, how individual creativity positively impacts the soul. It's become both a visual catalyst for thought and inspiration, and a simple reminder that the little things in life are most important. Photography provides a continual unbiased conscience quantifying the importance of modern technology, while trusting that interpersonal communication will always remain the primary focus. Photography has taught me that sometimes the most important and impactful thing to do is to get my face out of the cameras viewfinder and simply stop, look and listen.
Alternatively, photography offers a daily chin checking. A no BS assessment of failure and vulnerability, while simultaneously providing clarity, direction, and motivation. Patience. Photography has taught me lots of patience, and it's a constant reminder that the best things in life never come easy.
Most importantly, photography provides a continual reminder that the litmus for success is measured by so much more than fame and fortune. In its purest form, success is achieved through selfless collaboration. This is a battle tested philosophy in which its lessons are permanently etched into my daily practice. Fact. Repeatable success can never be sustained flying solo.
