First of all, thanks to everyone who as ever visited here. I have made a lot of great friends and I felt it was important to let you know I was OK. It has been awhile. After 4 years of posting a photo and a short story every weekday, I took a short break for all the right reasons. A few folks emailed me to check in and make sure I was OK. I’m happy to report I am perfectly healthy. Heck, I even won that big belt buckle by racing my mountain bike 104 miles over 12,000 vertical feet in under 9 hours. Not an easy task!
I wanted to check in, let everyone know I am alright and fill you in on what has gone on. So here it goes!
I’m Still Making Photographs
I’m Helping To Lead Photo Jamborees
I Have Met Some Cool People
As part of my ongoing project, the one that I hope will shed some light on this world and promote a shared understanding between all of us, I have met some interesting people. I hope to share those stories with you soon. More on that at the end…..
I Photographed Wild Horses
I’m Continuing To Evolve
As a creator, I am constantly evolving. This year I have attempted to live my life by a lesson a great photographer once shared with me. Get a Leica M6 and run film through it for a year. Well, I don’t have a M6 and that much film is SUPER expensive so I did the next best thing. I bought a Fuji X100s (read my review) and make JPGS straight out of the camera. I have done it for about a year now and it has changed me….for the better!
I Wrote A Book
This new way of seeing the world has changed me so much, I actually wrote a book with by buddy about it.Click Here to get it!
I’m Still Exploring
This is actually my good friend and co-founder of The Photo Frontier but it was just too perfect of an image. Yes, I am still exploring….EVERYDAY…EVERY WAY!
What Does The Future Hold?
In short….A dream and doing some good!
The longer answer is…I hope to reinvent the idea of media and journalism. In doing so, I hope I can change the world, even in a small way. I know that is a lofty goal, but it is what I am going to set out to do. This will not be easy, but neither was racing a mountain bike 104 miles over 12,000 vertical feet in under 9 hours.
For now, if you are interested in learning more about photography, I will continue to share my knowledge on The Photo Frontier. I would suggest signing up for the newsletter to keep in touch. As for HOSSedia, things will be changing soon. There is no question I will need help. I will NEED YOUR HELP, so make sure to stay in touch and follow HOSSedia on Instagram (@HOSSedia).
Thanks again to everyone who has visited, reached out to me over the years and read this far. I hope to continue the evolution and maybe, just maybe, we can do some good together.
