Reach

From time to time, ok well almost everyday, I check my website and Blog statistics to see where the love is coming from across this Big Blue Ball we call planet earth. Provided I have taken my own visits out of the equation, yes I do like to look at my sites sometimes; I am blessed to report that in 2008 you have visited my website and blogs 5,000 times across 100 countries.

Now when I started my presence on the web, I never knew that it would grow to the level it has and that other photographer and Bloggers like Ross Oscar Knight would mention my blog on their blogs. This has definitely helped with the stats and the love. I also didn’t know that other Bloggers like Lisa Brady, Angel Sallade, and Doug Rutter to name a few would put links to my blog on their Blogs. AND to have such world renowned destination photographers like Ross Oscar Knight and Scarlett Lillian comment on my work has been an awesome compliment to my work. When I look at where I started the year and where I am ending it, I have definitely developed as a photographer and a student of the world. There is still much to learn and I have to send a “shout-out” to Ross for helping me figure out how to use my flash and the constant encouragement. Thanks to Scarlett for giving me many ideas on how to market the business and add “punch” to the photo’s. It’s been a amazing ride and it’s just the beginning of something wonderful. Thanks to everyone who’s supported me and sent some love my way; God knows I need it at times.

Stay Blessed!

Thanks Scarlett. Maybe someday I will get to your level and have people lining up to shoot with me. Love the new head shots by the way.
