Well, I haven't been submitting much photography, but just consider that a temporary lapse. I'll be back at it soon :)

It's tough to work a full-time job and get out to shoot landscapes, especially during fall and winter where I spend almost all daylight hours indoors in an office. If that wasn't enough, I signed up to run my first marathon and have been training 4 days a week. I knew I would spend a lot of time running, but I didn't realize how much rest and recovery time I would need. 8.5 to 9 hours of sleep feels about right, but takes away from the hour in the morning I might spend on photography. 

Despite the time away from photography and other passions, I think it is time well spent. Running has helped clear my mind and keep me (relatively) sane for the last 10 years or so. One of my main reasons for setting the goal of a marathon is to learn something new about training, discipline and prioritizing. There's no way I can run that distance without sticking to a plan, and I stick to the training plan religiously. I think sports are analogous to everything in life. If I can carry the discipline over to other parts of my life (like photography) when I'm ready, I believe I can take the quality of my work to another level.

On the plus side, I have the time between Christmas and New Years off from work. Maybe I'll finally have some time to get out there with my camera and share some new work :)

I'm a graphic designer who likes to play around outside with my camera. In summer 2011 I decided to take photography more seriously. I'm trying to learn everything I can, improve every time I shoot and share my best work here.

Most of my photos are taken somewhere around the LA or OC area in southern California.
