Systems Are Go!

Houston, we have liftoff! I've been thinking about getting a personal website for a few years now and I've finally got myself into gear. Welcome to my new online home! Take your shoes off, make yourself comfortable, hope you like what I've done with the place. 

Wanaka, New Zealand.

Most people build a website because they have something to sell. That isn't my aim here. Of course, feel free to buy all my prints if you decide you're so enamored with my work that you must have them! But that’s not what this is here for. My main purpose for this is so I have a place to display the work I’m most proud of. This is the portfolio part of the site. My images are plastered on a lot of social media websites right now. Facebook, Google+, Flickr, 500px, I’m on them all. While they’re all great in their own way, layouts change all the time and I have no control over how images are displayed (I’m talking about you Facebook, quit changing stuff all the time!). Not here though. I have total control here. So if it sucks, I can only blame myself! Hopefully it doesn't suck. Or even if it does suck right now, it’ll be a good learning experience to get it to suck a bit less.

My secondary purpose for this website is a place for me to jot down my thoughts on various things. That’s the blog part of the site. My thoughts might turn out to be as boring as dry toast, or they might be unexpectedly captivating. The truth is probably somewhere in between but it doesn't really matter either way because the important thing is to just write them down. In years to come, it’ll be interesting to see where I've come from. Interesting for me anyway. And if it's interesting for me, then maybe others out there may find it interesting too. I plan to be open and personal with all my posts. Polar opposite to my personality so that should be an interesting exercise.

Anyway, I hope you like it here. Feel free to peruse and comment... or not. You won’t hurt my feelings if you don't. If you do want to hear more from me though, tell me your name and email address and I'll notify you whenever I post a new blog entry, which will be once a week if all goes to plan.

Thanks for popping by.
