Why should I start a blog

Why should I start a blog? One of my friends asked me the other day if they should start a blog, I said absolutely, whats the benefit of having a blog he asked. Let me tell you.

A blog is very important to me, its a way that I can express my self to the world, its a way to be heard, its a way for me to bond with the people around me. A blog is also a timeline of my work, I can see my progress every single time I post, and I can always go back and see how far I have come and how I evolve as an artist.

Every photographer needs a blog. Here is a few reasons.

1. Its free. You dont need any cash to start a blog, you can get up and running with zero dollars. Try WordPress or Blogger.

2. It serves as your website if you don’t have one or cant afford one. You can make a blog an amazing portfolio where you can show off your work. (its not about your website its about the content)

3. Google loves blogs, you will get more traffic with a blog than with any other website out there. This means more eyes see your work.

4. You have complete control of it, you can add and change things constantly with just a few clicks. (even from your smart phone or tablet)

5. Most blogs now are formated for mobil devises so anyone can find you on the go, this is very important being that lots of people use tablets to browse the web now a days.

6. A blog gets you stablished as an expert and gives you and your work more credibility. Future customers will constantly look at your work and ideas and in turn that will lead to more work.

7. People can subscribe to your blog and will. They will get an email with an update every time you update your blog. This is awesome because it gives you a simple way to build a loyal fan base.

8. Meet more like minded people, photographers love looking at other photographers blogs. I have met lots of my friends through here, its crazy, almost anywhere I go I have people to go shoot with, its awesome.

9. Stay connected with friends and family, this is a way of letting your loved ones know what your up to and what you are currently working on.

This are just a few reasons to blog away. So what are you waiting for? Get blogging…

Have an awesome day peeps and spred the love…

Outside Lands Festival

Outside Lands 2012, what an amazing show, I got to see so many of my favorite musicians of all times with some of my best friends. This trip was crazy, I flew to San Francisco just for this. I really wanted to see Metallica, Stevie Wonder and really everyone else there. I brought all my gear as always, but inside I had to make a choice, do I want to watch the show and fully sumerge my self into the music or do I want to photograph some of my favorite musicians of all times? The choice was easy. I would of love to capture all this rock stars on stage, but instead every time someone came to the stage I put my camera away, I wanted to enjoy this to the fullest and that I did. The only photos I really took was of my friends and of the people walking around in between stages going to see their favorite bands. Sometimes the moments are left to be captured by someone else and for me to simply enjoy with out having to think about anything at all… Spread the love peeps and Happy Friday…
