Over the past year I have been so amazed, encouraged, blessed by the people in my life and the relationships that have come through this forum and this industry. Gary and Melissa just left last night after hanging out in SB for a week and I find myself sitting here already getting excited for the next time I'll get to hang with them. They are two incredible people who bring so much joy to my life.
...ok...enough with the sappy stuff...oh wait...maybe not..ANOTHER incredible couple who I met last month just sent me the sweetest package. Justin and Amelia Lyon are awesome photographers who will lead this next generation because they have the intagibles that it takes to get to the next level. They are the sort of people who just "get it" and I'm excited to get to know them more and learn from them.
They sent me the Arrested Development dvd's and the coolest Volcom sweater ever! ...and those of you who know me know that I don't watch TV and Justin and Amelia know this too but the reason why I'm so intrigued by this show is because the story of this award winning show is so similar to many photographers who's work is excellent but still go out of business just like this show did. If you want to see the never ending list of awards this show won click here and I'll be talking about the reasons for tragedies like this on the PUG tour because I get so bummed when photographers overly focus on areas of their business that aren't going to help them reach their goals.
Thanks you guys!!! Can't wait to hangout again!
