I fell off for a while. I almost quit. I almost convinced myself that I’m not a photographer. I turned to escaping reality to avoid my emotions and circumstances. I totaled my car, got into some trouble, even contemplated suicide. It’s been a crazy past few months. I let one thing that happened to me take me over completely for a while there.. But I needed to go through it all. I’ve finally hit a point of, “Okay...this is it. I’m ready. It’s time. Time to finish what I started.” I’m not sorry or embarrassed to open up like this bc this is my journey. When I achieve everything I’ve ever dreamed of and more, people all over the world will come across this caption and maybe just maybe...it’ll push them through their hard times. I will be great. I’ve talked to hundreds, maybe even a thousand people about my photography since I came back down to Florida. I’ve never believed in myself so much until all of you told me I have a gift, hyped up my work, made me feel like I’m unique. It means the world to me. Having people believe in me when I didn’t even believe in myself is the best blessing I could’ve asked for. So this is me just letting those who truly appreciate my work know, that I’m here. I’m here to create, to show you what I have planned, to connect. I want to move to LA by 2020 to be in a creative environment. I want to photograph musicians, actors, poets, politicians, infamous people, athletes, writers, models, basically all walks of life. I also want to photograph everyday people. I want to capture the rawness of one specific moment. I want my work in galleries. I want my work to be featured in magazines. I want to drop photobooks every 3-4 years of my favorite shots. I want to create a brand. I want to be one of the most targeted photographers in the world. Because when I die, I want to be remembered for this. I want my photographs to be viewed for generations. I want to be one of the greatest photographers to ever walk this earth. I want to shoot for National Geographic. To work with huge brands. I will target concerts/music festivals in the next few years. To do this, I have to work extremely hard. I have to fail.
