The story of a life with art
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me! Photography has been a passion of mine throughout my life. It is my hope to share that joy and enthusiasm with you.
Crossroads Photography has been a long time coming. I have always been fascinated by the lore of the great blues guitarist, Robert Johnson. As Johnson sang about his encounter with a crossroads, I too, found myself in a situation not too dissimilar. Through every breath I take, I have explored life in a creative manner. For most of my life, that creative outlet was through being a musician. I have played guitar and sang in front of thousands of people in my time.
Unfortunately, in 2017, I got incredibly sick (I almost kicked the bucket!) and was physically unable to play music for the first time in my life. It devastated me. The creativity in me was was still there though, just bursting in me to be released. I had always looked at photography as something I would ultimately get around to, taking classes here and there, and decided that it was finally time. It was a crossroads of sorts (hence the name!).
As soon as I started snapping my first pictures, the world opened up an entirely new beauty to me. I was hooked immediately! I learned and absorbed from everywhere I could and just immersed myself in the art. Originally, I did this as a means of expressing my creativity for creativity's sake. Now that I have found out that others are enjoying my work, I am enamored and have found even more inspiration.
Today, my health is back and I am able to pursue both passions and am in love with life as a result! I reckon you can call that a happy ending. I know I do!
