Every girl goes through photography stage. Every girl dreams of being a photographer someday. In all, photography can be so very cliché.
I adore photography. After two years and two courses, I’ve realized that this isn’t a stage. It’s a passion of mine.
My goal is to be a photographer, but to form my own style and steer as far away from cliché as I can. I don’t just want to jump on the wagon of every trend. I don’t want to become discouraged by the small number of clients or the fact I can’t afford new gear right now. I want to let go of the burden of feeling like I need fancy editing programs or a nicer camera. Yes, I want these things but I don’t need to them to be a photographer. I want to do the best I can with my camera right now.
I’ve decided my goal with photography is to tell stories. A story doesn’t need a fancy camera to be told, as much as a story doesn’t need a book to be heard. It’s gradual steps. I’m not quite to the higher steps yet, but I’m going to make the best of the view every step of the way.
I want to be a collector of stories. I really want my photo’s to spill and be worth a thousand words.
I want to tell the stories of people, in every chapter of their lives:
I want to tell the stories of the smallest adventures:
I want to tell the stories of my friends and those first spring golden hours:
I want to tell the stories of those long days spent pouring over Physics:
I want to tell the stories of night by campfires, where every breath we spoke was in praise:
I want to tell the stories of the precious things and the littlest joys:
I want to tell the stories of family dinners:
I want to tell the stories of little boys and Dinsey World:
I want to tell sometimes blurry stories of nights I’ll never tear from my memory:
I want to tell stories of precious Christmas memories:
I want to tell the stories of weddings + new beginnings:
I want to tell the stories of everything, sometimes abstract just for fun:
I want to tell stories of life, real and raw. I want the world to be my canvas, my camera my paint brush. I never want to give up, no matter what stage I am in, on capturing life.
