Featured : Rangefinder Magazine : Uncomfortable

Photography

Yesterday was my nephew’s 4th birthday party, which normally wouldn’t have been an issue with the exception that the night before we didn’t get home until past 1am from a wedding in Los Angeles. I blinked my eyes open on Sunday morning then moaned immediately as my feet hit the floor. My body felt like it’d be tossed around in a dryer all night. Permanent press cycle.

We spent the afternoon at the park and–like always–JD was a hit with the kids…and I…well I ate my weight in snow cones, held a baby to avoid the water balloon fight, and took pictures of the birthday cake. I was way efficient. There were times when I was overwhelmed being around JD’s super-sized family (he has 16 aunts and uncles), but I’ve somehow managed to come out of my shell through the years.

I suppose that’s been the story of my life in the past five years. Getting Uncomfortable. I recently had the honor of writing an article for Rangefinder Magazine about this very notion and how it’s helped me approach attending conferences like WPPI and ways a photographer can optimize his/her experience by Getting Uncomfortable. And, no, it doesn’t require a person to eat his weight in snow cones.
