I’m often approached and asked by many; “Have you check out the latest and greatest camera gear, I’m looking into buying it, what are your thought on it?”
Honestly, that’s a serious question that stops me in my tracks. Let me explain. Most of the photographers who ask me that question also confide that they are on a very tight budget and really don’t have the money to spend.

I believe that everyone matters; life experiences matter, and most importantly, no one should ever be forgotten!
Years will come and go and you will get older. You will have to rely on your memory or the memory of someone else to remember your happy and beautiful moments; Your life experiences and the person you loved most; The one that is or was important in your life; And the one that is or was dear and near to your heart.
But what happens after so many years, or when nature takes its course? Your mind and memories slowly start to fade and you forget. The first thing that goes is how your loved one physically looked, and then the memories of what they were like. The only thing that fills that hole, that gap, the fading of memory and the fact that they did exist, that they where here full of life and that they matter so much in this world is “A Picture, A Photograph”.
