I have always been a prolific photographer. When I was young I always had a camera in my hands. After I turned pro, my father always gave me a hard time, saying I shot too much film -- "You're spending so much money. Do you really need to take that many pictures?" The answer was and is a definite "Yes!" I'm always working on several projects. It nourishes my soul and helps me learn to be a better photographer, and more important, a better person.
