The New Year Is Rollin' Along...

Wow, I can't believe I've been remiss in posting here. The New Year has come and gone and, well, here we are.

The New Year started out well enough, I suppose. Like anything, there were ups and downs, but we learn to roll with the punches eventually. Hey, whatever doesn't kill you, right? Well, I was ripe for some changes, I guess, whether I realized it or not, so those changes were made.

The 6th anniversary of me quitting smoking came and went; January 16. Easily the best decision I've ever made regarding my health and my wallet (have you seen cigarette prices lately??).

An early highlight of the year was getting a press credential for the Mecum auto auction in Kissimmee, Florida. Unbelievable rides and, in many cases, astronomical prices. Here's a piece I wrote for my magazine's website which chronicles my time there: Mecum Auction.

Late last year I got picked up by another area magazine. Of course, I've been writing and shooting for St. Augustine Social since it started, and it's a wonderful group of people to be associated with. This new magazine is a bit different, though, and I'll probably be doing a lot more photography than writing. The first issue hasn't hit the street yet, so I'm not quite ready to let the cat out of the bag as to the name yet, but rest assured it's going to be good! 

And, much to the approval of my bank account, college shoots are starting up again at the end of this month. This is where I make the lion's share of my income, and it looks like it's shaping up to be a pretty big lion this spring. Add to that the concert shoots I'm doing, as well as side-jobs and one-offs, and I hope to not have a lot of free days on my calendar.

Oh, and Bike Week is coming up in Daytona, and God knows I NEVER shooting during Bike Week.

So a busy year it's been so far, and it only looks to ramp up before to long.

But, as I always say, busy is good!

Wrapping Up Another Year...

I'm finding it a bit difficult to believe that's it's been six months since I've posted anything. It seems as though, as soo...
