The Reason Behind the Passion
I believe that every photographer has a reason that fuels their passion for photography. My reason is simple. I blame my Aunt Jessie’s camera shyness.
My Aunt Jessie, A very wise woman, that Loved her family dearly, was the best Aunt a kid growing up in the south could desire. She died during my teenage years. During the preparation for the funeral program, I realized that after all of her years on Earth, I only had one photograph of her. (a work photo) From that day on I decided that I would capture my family members; that is the reason I recommend to people “take pictures.” for the memories and to be remembered by those we leave behind.
