When I received this project I will admit I was actually slightly giddy. To be able to spend two days photographing all the intricate details of the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul at St Paul's School was, to me, a photographer's dream.
Over two days I explored all the nooks and crannies within those walls and felt humbled by the beauty in each detail.
Seeing the final project in print form brought on a sense of pride in my work. This became an extremely personal project for me in its timing and one that will stay will me forever.
on Lake Winnipesaukee this summer. Mike Morin offers lessons using various water sports gear based out of Silver Sands Marina in Gilford. Try waterskiing, wake boarding, wake surfing.... Mike will get you up and out of the water in no time.
When I'm on assignment I am always looking for something to capture the feeling of the event whether it is expression or a sense of place. Nine times out of ten I will go for expression - that's just who I am. I hopefully pass that feeling onto the viewers as they see the story in print.
Getting yourself into a different place will offer a point of view that others could not have seen.
Seeing the opportunity is one thing... but you must be willing to act on the opportunity. A friend reached out and shared a story about "Soc" Bobotas with me this week. And he said something that truly hits home.
"If you did not try it how would you ever know if you could do it!"
Obviously, I reached out ...
In the future I hope to keep close those wise words and continue with that philosophy as the rewards are well worth it.
