Tomorrow a new group of photographers will start the 20th Summer Intensive program at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography . This will mark one year since I made the leap from a software consultant to a photographer. A lot has changed in the course of the last year and the five months I spent in Missoula, Montana. I am now pursuing a career in photography and am fulfilled in doing so. While has been great, so has keeping in contact with the people I met and spent time with while in Missoula.
One year later, I still keep in close contact with the fellow photographers in my group as we share and critique images, in addition to acting as a sounding board as we move forward with our photography from Scranton to San Francisco to Dallas and as high up as Aspen and many places in between. I also keep in contact with a few people outside my initial group and am constantly stunned by the images they are producing also keeping me inspired as I move forward.
The decision to head to Montana for the summer was one which I didn’t know was the correct decision, but sitting here in Denver a year later and looking at the direction I am going I can certainly say it was the right decision.
