So this first blog will be mostly an introduction to me and a little bit about why I chose photography. I am not a blogger by any means, but I think most are not when they first start.
Hello! My name is Troy and no that’s not short for anything; no that’s not what my name would’ve been if I was a boy. I was even asked one time did my parents lose a bet? No, they really loved the name and I have grown to love it as well:)
I’ve been doing Photography on and off for 20 years. Every time I put down my camera and walk away from it God always pulls me back to it. So after years of having one foot in the door I’ve decided to pick up that camera for good.
So, why did I choose to get into photography? I had a lot of dreams in my life; a long list of things that I wanted to do and photography was always one of them. I watched my dad doing it growing up. Whenever he would allow me the opportunity to hold his camera never less actually use it; that was very exciting. I think it was that excitement that made me want to pursue it most of all. There’s something about photography, it’s capturing that moment seeing that moment and then sharing that moment. For me seeing some thing that has brought myself joy bring others joy is quite a remarkable thing. Not everyone expresses themselves this way some are painters, some are sculptures, some sing it, some write it. There are many ways to express yourself. I’ve chosen to photograph it .
So my hope is to inspire you, to encourage you and to help you see joy in everything. I am better than I used to be but I am not where I hope to be yet But I thank you for joining me in this adventure.
