Well, I have to say, even though writing on this blog looks exactly the same as writing on my old blog, it feels…different. Special. And I intend to make it so!

I moved blogs because this year I have new hopes for myself (personally and professionally). I want to do as much as is humanly possible to help in any way that I can, and that extends to anyone reading this blog to the charity work I’ll be doing in India (and hopefully more!).

Promoting Passion is a big idea that I’ll be introducing a little bit at a time. You’ll see that you can get ideas for various charities you can become involved with, and in time that will grow into a campaign that anyone can join to teach workshops to underprivileged groups…but that will come out in it’s own time, when all of the appropriate contacts are collected.

So! In the meantime, I’ll be writing here like my usual self, sharing new images, essays, and what I hope to be inspirational thoughts. But I’m adding something a little different to this blog. Every Monday of the new year I’ll be releasing a video. If you ever have a question or idea for a video topic, please do let me know and I will do my best to answer it. Every Monday you can check in here for a new message, and the topics range from how-to videos for shooting and editing to thoughts on inspiration…and everything in between.

It’s the start of 2014. It is the perfect time to try new things and inspire yourself. But always remember that every moment of every day holds that same opportunity, and it is up to us to take it. I hope you enjoy the new blog, and thank you INFINITELY for being here…my world is brighter for it.

    Bettye Rainwater - I love the idea of sharing photography with those in need…one of my current blog responsibilities is for the school (for those with autism) where I work and I’m planning a project of giving students and clients disposable cameras to shoot their day with…so maybe we can get a look at what the day looks like through their eyes. Some of the kids are higher functioning and I hope to spend some time sharing lessons on using natural light and creating interesting compositions.

    I have much to learn about photography…but I love to share what I do know!

    I look forward to hearing more about your project when it’s time!ReplyCancel

What would the start of a new year be without looking back and celebrating accomplishments from the one before. I am a big believer in positivity for others and oneself, and I like to look back on a year and say, “You know what, I did something that made me happy, and gosh darn it, that’s great!”

I did things that didn’t make me as happy too, but those mistakes were learned from and I can only hope that 2014 will bring more mistakes, because a person who never learns never grows.

Here are some of my most fulfilling photo shoots from 2013:

Hi guys! If you care to read about the last 3+ years of my life, you can do so at my old blog. I’ve got a ton of content over there that I’d love for you to check out.

All new posts will be published here at Promoting Passion.
