Photography has always been a part of my life, but for the last 5 years it has influenced me tremendously, the most being in the last year. You may or may not know this about me, but in college I was an accounting major and an art minor. That probably makes no sense to a lot of you, but to me it was the perfect combination. It gave me the opportunity to live the American dream with my wife, yet still stay true to my creative side. It was while completing my art minor that passion for photography began. Those late nights spent in the dark room or studio, inspired me to learn as much as I could in such a short period of time. After graduation, the American dream took over the creative passion. Photography was still something I enjoyed and did regularly as a hobby.
It wasn’t until a little over a year ago that I stumbled onto some really creative work. I always thought wedding photography was boring; shoot, mine was! But this was different. This was creative, modern, passionate, romantic, and fun! This is what I wanted to do!
So I invested in some better gear, got a web page, and began marketing. I was shooting for the stars and loving every minute of it!
I have learned so much in the past year; I feel like my style is finally beginning to develop. Those late nights in the studio are starting to pay off, and I get overly excited sharing my work with clients.
I have heard and seen the benefits of blogging and only a few months ago recently, began blogging myself. So now, I would like to welcome you to the new official website/blog. I made the change for a few reasons-one, it can be customized easily and displays much larger images. Two, it can be viewed on all your favorite apple devices :) Also, as I evaluate my brand, this website/blog gets me excited about the future. So take a minute and check everything out, there will be some additional changes in the near future so make sure to stay tuned!
You will also notice a slight change in the business name. In addition, I want to share a little history of “Sunglow.” It was originally named after my favorite surf spot, a pier in Daytona where you could catch a solid ride and everyone in the water surfed with a passion. So it began with a dream in the ocean, and has developed into a life style and a passion.
I have enjoyed the relationships photography has given me and don’t take any of them for granted. I simply have a vision, it is all of you who make my work what it is!
I hope you will visit often, I hope you see my work as more than just an image on paper or pixels on a computer screen. Instead, I hope it is something inspiring, something creative, and something that tells a story to last a lifetime.
