Went out yesterday and bought myself one of these. No more being tethered to the amp.

This video is part of a project I'm currently working on. It's far from finished but I thought I'd post it anyway. On this day of Thanksgiving, please don't forget to thank a U.S. Military Veteran for helping to preserve the freedoms we all hold so dear.

Introduction
I began my career as a full-time professional photographer in 1984 after leaving a management position at a computer manufacturer in Houston, Texas. Since 1994 I have lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I've specialized in people, portrait, lifestyle, food and still life photography assignments.

However, growing up in the 1950s, some of my most vivid recollections are of quietly perusing the stacks of Life and Look magazines that my mother kept. It was those magazines and the incredible photo essays they contained by such great photographers as Robert Capa, W. Eugene Smith, Margaret Bourke-White and many others that first inspired me to become a photographer.

Though I’ve been a photographer for a very large part my life, I’ve never followed that original inspiration. Instead, I’ve chased the almighty dollar and so the past few years I’ve become increasingly dissatisfied with the type of work I’ve been doing. Though I’ve felt that the work has certainly been of high quality, the fact remains that it simply has not been fulfilling.

So, I’m moving away from shooting portraits, food and still lifes and going back to the type of photography that inspired me in the first place, documentary photography.

I’ve recently begun working on a photo documentary project to put a human face on the problems of hunger in New Mexico and looking for support from local organizations to help out with this important project. Whether or not I am able to receive any support though, I feel compelled to keep working on it. It’s a terribly important issue.
Bragging rights
I'm broke, homeless and desperately trying to work on a project but at least I'm still kickin'.
