On your mark… get set… Blog!

Blog, I’d like you to meet my reader. Reader, I’d like you to meet Blog.

Now that we have the formal introductions out of the way…

Welcome to my first blog entry. I’ve decided to establish a blog as a forum to write about my photo experiences, thoughts, client work, and to provide a home for a fun new project – photo of the week.

First, I’d like to say that I know you all lead busy lives, get oodles of emails, and I won’t be the least bit offended if you wish to be removed from this mailing list. Please let me know with a quick reply saying “Remove me” if that’s the case. No hard feelings.

If you do feel like hanging on for the ride, then you have some options:

1. Enter your email in the "Subscribe Via Email" box on the right to receive new posts and view the Photo of the Week from the comfort of your own inbox. You will only receive one email per week.

2. Subscribe to the RSS feed to read new posts in your favorite RSS reader. Click the "RSS Feeds" link in the right-hand column.

3. Or at your simply visit at your own leisure.

So speaking of the Photo of the Week project… I gotta be honest, my original intention was to shoot a photo-a-day, but that’s quite a challenge unless you want to see photos of my dog five days out of the week. I wouldn't do that to you.

Back in photo school at ICP in New York, one of my most challenging classes was Roll-a-Day with Harvey Stein. We’d have to shoot one roll of film everyday, develop the negatives and make at least one print to show from each roll. Try that for 4 months! You will no doubt end up with a bunch of crappy pictures.

Hopefully, I'll post much more compelling images each week.

I hope you’ll stick around and enjoy!
