The long lost Richard..... with apologies.
Just a quick Tuesday night post..... after 3 and a half years. I am alive and well and getting back into the writing thing. Still doing photography but that has changed as well. In early 2017 I got a little sidelined when my old dog Maverick became ill with degenerative mylinopathy which is a canine form of ALS. He was getting closer to 16 when he died a few months later. A tough time. A lot of energy caring for the old guy, carrying him up and down three stories and watching him decline. The old question: when do you pull the plug? My choice, educated but painful.
All that aside, I still accept a limited number of smaller weddings for 2020. I am not looking for 12 hour events but rather 3 to 4 hour events. I want to give my clients great service, a great experience and a lot of excellent, high quality images which they can have printed at recommended providers.
Now for the disclaimer..... the wife of a fellow, older and experienced photographer said that I wouldn't likely get any work because... the horror.... I am a senior!!!! Yes, it is shockingly true! I even get a little pension from the federal government! So if you want a professional wedding photographer with hundreds of wedding clients, the best gear and a fun, creative approach to personalize your wedding then contact me. Darcie did and I think she is very happy with the images from that day.
And i get to take photographs of my neighbours life events...... and then give them some 4x6 prints and the odd enlargement . Here is my friend from across the street.... Clemente is 92 years young and I have been welcomed by his 10 children, 41 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. A truly wonderful and eye-opening experience.
