By no means would I dub myself a "street photographer". But if you know me well, you'd know that I was drawn to photography by the uniqueness and the beauty that's prevalent in our lives. These Amish caught my attention when I was doing nothing but looking for trouble to shoot (can we call it "trouble-shooting"?). I mean, they are already unique in their own rights. And spotting Amish in a train station is one step up on "uniqueness". Wouldn't you expect to see them travel in horse-drawn carriages?
Let's face it. When I made the big transition to do photography on a commercial level (vs. a hobby and vs. continuing on the corporate path), I did not plan on this day. It was simply a pursuit of a passion, a passion to bring and share joy and beauty, a passion to connect with people and make a positive impact to their lives. And then, this opportunity came along for the business to be featured in Examiner. So I don't need to tell you how excited I am to see it being published, the philosophy behind this business.
It's still true that it's a business. Even non-profits need to balance their budgets. And I need to support myself. But I also hope that there's more to the business transactions, that there is a human side.
Well, let me step off the soap box so you can read for your own:
Now, how can I make a difference to you?
