When asked if I’m a photographer I typically respond, “Well I have 100,000 photos on my camera roll.”

You see, I recognize that there are better photographers out there. They’ve mastered the art of manual settings. They know how to compose an image, not just capture what they see.

My style is point and shoot. I capture what I see while trying to get the best angle. I don’t mess with makeup or ask my subject to pose a certain way. I’ve messed with manual settings only when absolutely necessary. Sometimes, I add filters.

I photograph everything. Even my food. I capture life experiences. I take photos of my girlfriend. I photograph what’s in front of me to share it with others or just to save it for all time.

Many of my photos never see the light of day. I snap it and then it remains unappreciated on an Amazon Cloud server somewhere in a distant land.

Sometimes I publish photos 6 years later on Instagram; those are always fun.

I capture memories and history; preserving them for all time.

So if you ask if I’m a photographer, well I’m not a snooty one. I know the tools, I’ve used them quite a bit. As far as my skill level — I’ll let you judge.
