I took a hiatus from photography (and blogging) for a year, mostly because I had a very stressful job in photographic reproduction. Long hours spent on printing and marketing the work of professional photographers left me with very little spare time and I lost the desire to work on my own stuff. I moved on to a new gig in broadcast television last summer, and got reacquainted with my camera kit soon thereafter.
I decided to relaunch this blog as an online portfolio and photojournal, but I will also be introducing you to other work from some of my favourite photographers around the world. I won't bore you with technical chatter - there's already plenty of photogeek blogs that deliver better advice than I ever could. I simply hope to offer a daily dose of awesome for people who like pretty pictures.
I spent several hours last weekend recovering and reorganizing all my image files, having lost everything two weeks ago in a tragic motherboard disaster. I realized that I take a lot of pictures of trees. I don't do it on purpose - sometimes they deserve it because they look all gnarly and cool, but sometimes they're just standing there, hogging the spotlight from my intended subject, making the image twice as good.
