Its 3:22am, here in Columbia, S.C. and hopefully my first “blog” will actually work when I click the post button. It has taken me a while to become sold on the idea of “blogging” actually. I’ll admit that I am a pretty private person, so the thought of journaling out my life for everyone to see didn’t strike me as something I wanted to do, and it took me even longer to be sold on the idea that a blog can be journalistic in any way. After doing some thinking recently I came up with an answer though. The only thing that seperates individuals from publications is accountability. So with this forum I am going to hold myself accountable to standards of ethics, impartiality and accuracy that would be expected from a journalist at any major publication. I hope, that through this medium I can share my images, and stories to enlighten other phtographers on what I went through to make the photos, an inform everyone about the issues, causes, and most importantly the people that I photograph. This should be an interesting journey, that I’m looking forward to. So if at any point I begin to ramble incessently, or go off on a tangent please forgive me, I’ll try to catch myself before I go too far. I really don’t know how to end this, but I will just say thanks for reading, and hopefully I’ll have more to say soon.
