Welcome to my blog!..and of course my new website.
I'm sure most of you reading this will know me (hi Mom & Sherry!), but just in case you came across this site while mashing your stumble button, check out the "About Me" page.
Over the last couple of years I've been trying to start up a site with not much success. Mostly it's gone something like this: see really cool photographers site -> get pumped on my own site -> buy hosting -> buy template -> start up wordpress -> realise template I bought kind of sucks -> try to change (via code)-> get fed up -> throw object against wall. Repeat yearly...until now [dun dunn DUNNN!]
So maybe you're asking, "Why do you even want a website?" Well my good sir/madam, as I've grown with my photography over the past 5 years, so has my need to separate the more artsy/im-not-saying-im-a-professional-but-professionalish-shots from my more everyday shots. As facebook isn't really a great place to host photos (they own the rights to any photo you upload - for as long as it remains uploaded), I wanted to shift more of my facebook galleries over to flickr where they would be safer - thus making my flickr more funsie and less artsy.
What's gonna happen now? My grand plan basically consists of two things (attention span does not go beyond two). First I'll be updating the site with new photos (monthly) and videos (?6 monthly). Right now I'm deep into the astrophotography thing, so it's safe to say you'll be seeing a lot of SPACE!.. Second, I plan to actually start blogging again (the closing of teamsymbiosis.ca has inspired me). The blogs will most likely be about certain projects, or trips I make, but I'll add in random other posts (medicine, science, etc) when I'm inspired.
Anyway, here's to not throwing things against walls! :P
Edit: It's been like two years and I haven't written shit! hahaha oh man that was always gonna be the case. Hope you enjoy the photography at least!
