cc_yesterdayAre things really better today?  Does all this technology really make things better?  Is digital better than film?  Are cameras better today than yesterday?  Is being a photographer easier today than yesterday?  Is a website better than a portfolio?  What do you think?  I’m from the old school, but I live in the new school.  I was lucky to have the “good-old-days”, but they are the past and I refuse to live in the past.

Do I miss film?  Yes & no.  Do I miss carrying my heavy portfolios around?  NO!  I love digital, websites and today’s business.  One is not better than the other, its just different.  I’m just happy to have experienced both.  I love todays photography world, but its not better or worse.  It is what it is.  Just like the past.  The one thing I love about the past and so sure of… it was a lot simpler and all I had to worry about was taking pictures.  These days I do the job of 10 people everyday.

I have to be honest, if I miss anything about the past it would be my friends.  After working in this biz for 35 years you get to meet and know a lot of amazing people.  You cross paths, work together and then part ways.  Weather it was my crew, a client or a subject.  I met so many wonderful people and had some good times.  I haven’t stopped and I plan on creating for another 35 years!  I work hard everyday to get better, be better and do better.  Its just who I am and who I always will be.

PS. Yes I know the questions were stupid. Ugh! ;-)
