It seems like everyone is a photographer nowadays. Every time I get on Facebook, somebody has started a new photography business. It use to annoy me – buy a nice camera, aim it at some pretty stuff, and suddenly that makes you a professional photographer – but now I think it’s great. I say the more photographers the merrier, because the saying “it’s a small world after all,” that’s just some bullshit Disney saying that somebody made up anyhow. It’s a great, big, ginormous world after all, and there’s not enough time for a person to see everything. So when somebody can take some nice photos and really capture a moment, take you to the top of a 15,000 foot cliff, or place you along a peaceful river bank to watch the sunrise, I’m all for it.
Go on shutterbugs. Fire away. I just have one bone to pick, however. If you insist on incorporating a flower into your logo, or if you dot your i’s with hearts, or if your flyer looks like an 8 year old made it during arts and crafts at summer camp for mentally challenged children, than I can’t take your photography business seriously. Sorry. That’s just the way it is. Maybe you should take up selling scented candles or tupperware instead. Oh my gosh, was that mean? I’m sorry. I woke up at, like, 4 o’clock this morning and I have to work all day today with these folks from Toronto. Ugh. Folks from Toronto.
I’m not a professional photographer, but I do enjoy having an excuse to get outside and to see things in a different light, so I take photos from time to time. Feel free to steal them and use them for whatever. And if you’d like a high res photo, shoot me a message and I’m sure we could work it out. Like maybe a high res photo for an Arby’s sandwich, or something like that. I’m a pretty reasonable guy AS LONG AS IT’S NOT 4 O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING. Gotta go. Toodles (by the way, is that not the worst expression ever? “Toodles.” Talk about a total barf-o-rama. I think it’s time to go get some coffee now…)
