A look back at 2009…

My photography took a big leap in 2009. There was lots of learning and I saw definite steps forward in my technique and results.

Things got off to an early start in January when I decided to sign up for Harry Nowell‘s sports photography course, which included photographing an Ottawa 67’s hockey game. I liked Harry’s class so much that I decided to sign up for his pro program, for some assistance and insight in getting myself established as a working photographer.

This is it…….my first blog, and my first blog post. With this blog I plan to share my journey into the world of professional photography.

At this point I don’t know where this blog is headed, or where my journey will take me, but after years of dreaming of  a career I’d truly enjoy, I guess it’s time to find out.
