I guess we're doing this! (Intro)

For so long now, I've been considering starting a little blog. I never quite understood the purpose of blogs, or even considered what exactly I would talk about, but I'm here with my fingers on the keys to see where it might take me. For whatever purpose, a blog will give me an outlet to at least share my thoughts and experiences with followers/clients/friends. I plan to keep posts raw and uncensored, inviting others to get to know the guy behind the lens. Hopefully my posts will educate, entice, inform and entertain anyone who happens across them.

So... I guess we're doing this.
