Lake Tahoe Life

It's been more than a month since my "Manifest Destiny" post about my move from Western North Carolina to the Tahoe basin area of California. Much to my surprise, the past moth has been a huge era of introspection and change, as my personal shooting has halted, and my brain has been transformed to that more of an IT man than a creative. Thinking back on what I've shot (or a lack thereof), I find myself a little bit jaded on the lack of progress I've made, but scrolling through my catalog earlier today, maybe it hasn't been that bad. I realized I only feel like I'm coming up short of the immense beauty of the area--I don't think I'll ever be able to adequately photograph the area and give someone the same feeling as being here.

A few projects have recently opened themselves up which is incredibly exciting; one's even (believe it or not) portraits! As the calendar books up for the fall, I can't wait to get going again and really start knocking things out. Tomorrow marks the beginning of yet another project that hopefully will come to fruition over the next month or so. Keep an eye out for more directed work, and enjoy these for now.
