Just like my "real job", photography is mainly an exercise in creativity. There is a great technical and methodical aspect to both jobs and you spend a lot of time developing those skills and an even greater amount of time expanding them.
However, in both cases, real growth can come where you least expect it and often comes in the form of "playing around". I find that when I test the limits of my imagination it often requires a new skill that I can later apply to the "real work".
With all of that in mind I started a new gallery to share with you some playful stuff that may not be worth much to anyone else, but they're very important to me.
