"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
Photography for me, has always been about telling the story,
one I do without words. In any story there is a beginning a middle
and an end. There are those rare moments when you get all three
in one shot. And you know it when you shoot it.
You just do, you can feel it.
Then there are stories that demand more.
Pieces of the whole. It's a phrase I use often.
It's the only way I know how to define my work.
They say we are more than the sum of our parts,
philosophical speaking I suppose that's true.
But...when it comes to telling a story,
it has everything to do with the parts.
It doesn't matter if it's a wedding, or a lake shot, or a food image.
It's still all about the details, and the details are in the details.
All I want to do is tell the story.
say everything I cannot.
They not only tell the subjects story,
they also tell my own.
