In 2001 my ex gave me a fabulous computer. Up to that point I was using an Apple 2C. It was a Frankenstein with bits and pieces pirated from other computers. It had a whopping 256m hard drive *gasp* right? My life as a photographer started with this new computer. I’m a writer by nature so with GeoCities and Myspace, I was elated to have a place to store all my random thoughts and ideas. Shortly after I built my first GeoCities, I thought it would be cool to add photos to my ramblings. I started playing around with this old point & shoot I had laying around, and I was off. I was 38, well past school age, but I wasn’t too old to learn. I picked up every book, scoured the internet (mind you, Youtube had not been born yet), and found photography clubs and free classes. I ate it all up. One of these free classes was lead by an actual professor of photography at the local community college and she told me, “You have what I can’t teach,” and that fueled me and kept me going.
As the years progressed and technology and the internet grew, I grew. I have a passion for shooting the mundane moments. I find such glory in them. They are the moments that define us. Honestly though, who can afford to hire a photographer for that? So I found my joy in shooting these moments for friends, family, and my church, but I made my money in urban photography. I sold my photos to local businesses and even a couple to the news stations. In the end though, I had to give that up because while it was making me money, it was not making me happy. I would rather have my passion than be rich. So I opened MeAgain Photography in 2010 and with this in mind I’ve structured my business accordingly. You will find my rates well under market value. There are several ways I can keep my prices low which are explained on my services page. I hope you will take a look around this site and see if I can capture your memories great and small. I think we’d make a great team.
