I have a lot of random conversations through the interwebs, here’s a piece of one.

Her: “I had a woman that wanted a ‘sexy boudoir shoot’ but I had to tuen her down because she had a left sided masectomy and only has one breast and theres no way I could make her look sexy like that.”
Me: “There are times that I wish I lived near where some of you idiots are turning down gigs like this, you had a chance to do something amazing and screwed the pooch because you can’t wrap your head around the larger story here. She survived something traumatic and all you can visualize is scars. Lose my contact info.”

I’m all for people taking the clients that they want to, but seriously, why be a jerk about it? There’s a photographer for everyone out there, and if you find one that doesn’t fit, keep looking!

I was born in the Midwest and grew up in Iowa, Missouri and Texas. I guess you could say I had an eventful childhood, at least it was a helluva lotta fun! I enlisted in the Air Force in 1984 and retired in 2007. I saw a whole bunch of the world and racked up a lot of experiences in the process. Now I'm retired and enjoying life to the fullest!
