New Petography photos added!

My very first SLR camera was a Canon Rebel T1i that I had received as a birthday gift back in 2009. At the time, I was running my own pet care company specializing in pet training, walking, and therapy. So naturally, I thought, why not photograph these fur balls as my very first clients? I honestly couldn’t have picked better subjects to practice my skills on. After all, I saw them in their natural surroundings every day, and on top of that, you can guarantee that these guys will always show the kind of raw emotion that can be difficult with human clients at times. Those are just some of the many reasons why I love and admire animals so much, aside from being so full of positive energy and so damn cute all the time.

These photographs have a special meaning to me as it was the time of my life where I had that “aha” moment in my budding photography career and I had realized that this was the closest thing to stopping time and seeing it live on as close to forever as possible in a single photograph.

Danger Zone

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

I’ve always been a sucker for planes and helicopters. So much so that I have the occasional dreams of going Maverick style crazy on an F16, like a scene out of Top Gun (one of my favorite movies…… surprise!). I’m pretty sure I was a pilot of some sort in my past life, maybe that’s where my obsession for fast machines comes from.

There’s a heliport docked right over the East River on South Street. While my fellow neighbors hate the fact that it’s hearing distance from home, I go bonkers at the sight of these passing helicopters like a sugar cracked out kid in a candy store. While people’s idea of zen time usually consists of activities a little more quiet than whirling choppers, my “quiet” spot is right here in the, wait for it…… DANGER ZONE!!! Hah! I will see myself out now.

Never Grow Up

October 25, 2016

Kids is are all about having a ball of a good time, doing whatever the hell they want, and not giving a **** about what you think of it.

The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to carry that same mindset while I am still discovering my road to happiness.

Just because you grow old doesn’t mean the kid in you has to. 

Do what you were always born to do, run wild and be free. And whatever you do, don’t ever stop being YOU.

This road will have many challenges, and sometimes many times, finding yourself and what you truly want is the hardest thing you will have ever done. But at the end of the road, you will feel fulfilled and you will regret nothing.

Don’t ever give up. And more importantly, don’t ever stop living, loving, and laughing.

Here’s to our road to happiness.
