How my Photography has grown in 2 Years {Asheville Photographer}

This morning I read an article on fstoppers. It showcased 25 different photographers’ work, “Then and Now”. It was to remind all of us that every photographer begins somewhere. That each of us starts with just a love for the camera, and the opportunity for creation of art. So, with that I thought I would do a few myself. It helps me to remember that when I started 828 in the Spring of 2012 I had already been shooting for 15 years as a hobbyist but when I chose to do it professionally, something shifted. My spare time was used to challenge myself, learn the rules, learn functions with my camera I’d never even thought to use (or was scared to), drown myself in creativeLive classes, youtube tutorials, and the list goes on.

Every day I learn something new about my craft and I am happy to do so. I love my work and how far I’ve come and where I’ll go from here. It isn’t just about inspiration (though, that is a big part of it), it is about being inspired to be better and the bottom line is, you’ve gotta do the work. Each of the images below I love dearly, then AND now. I am using them merely to address how I’ve grown as a photographer and retoucher. Without having made these images, I wouldn’t be where I am today and as always, there is room for growth.

If you’re a photographer and curious where I draw education and inspiration from, I’m attaching a few links here. Check them out! You may draw some new inspiration yourself! If you’re someone listed below, Thank You.
