About Me

My Photo
I'm from the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. I was a woodworker for about 12 years. Well, up until I had the rug pulled out from under my feet, and I was laid off. I got back into photography in 2008 and decided to give that a try professionally, but haven't made any money so far because rednecks, white trash, and hicks are cheap. So, I'm working in a local grocery store where some days I hear and see the craziest stuff. I tend to complain a lot about things, but I'm too poor to afford a good therapist. So, I decided to make a blog and complain online to all of you instead. But I digress. I really just wanted to do the blog to share ideas and stories with the interwebz. =D

One From the Tips Toolbox...

Maybe you live in some other country where gas is already way more expensive than it is here in the US. Maybe you live in another part of the US where it's more expensive than it is here. If you're in one of those places, then you've probably already seen this happening, and hopefully, you've taken necessary steps to help protect yourself. I live in the southeastern US, and gas is close to $4.00 a gallon now. In a place where unemployment is sky high, and money is ridiculously tight, gas theft is becoming more and more rampant.

I Could Be Wrong...

Alright photographers, (That is - if there's any left reading my blog after the junk from a week or so ago...)

Let me ask you a question:

Have you ever seen a contest where a photographer uses other photographers' works to promote their own business?

Here's a No Brainer...

After mistaking the neighbor's donkey for a Tusken Raider's war cry tonight, I came to the following conclusion:

Tusken Raiders would make terrible neighbors.

Ruffled Feathers...


Okay, so the last post got some people good and pissed at me. Am I an a$$hole? Maybe.Yeah...okay. I am. So what? I'm just laying it out as I see it. It's only an opinion - my point of view. And since it's my gear at stake, it's the one that matters at this particular time. Calling me an a$$hole over an e-mail or text message really isn't going to remedy the situation, or help you with your dilemma of needing gear that you don't have.

Dude, McDonalds Doesn't Borrow From Burger King...

 Borrowing a cup of sugar, a shovel, even my lawnmower is one thing... Borrowing my camera is another.

Lately there's been a rash of folks asking to borrow photography gear from me. Now before I go off sounding like an a$$hole, let me be upfront - I will loan out gear to friends in need. Heck, I've borrowed a few items from other photographers myself. But here lately, it's been getting out of hand. Add in the fact that money is really, REALLY  tight in my house right now, and you've got me feeling a little on the stingy side. So, I'm sorry if I come across as a douche when you ask to borrow a list of my expensive camera equipment that I barely had the money to buy in the first place, and I tell you "no."

The Return to Plan A...

I used to have a plan. It was only a couple of years ago, but it seems like it was forever ago. Nonetheless, I had a plan.
