In 2002, my mother bought me a camera.
It was a college graduation gift for me, and I could not think of anything else I wanted or needed. The camera was nothing fancy; just a plain and simple 35-millimeter Kodak to use for everyday snapshots.
It gathered dust for three years.
In 2005, I departed for what would become one of many road trips across the United States and Canada. I blew off the dust and loaded up on rolls of film. The visions in this book are the end results of those photos.
One year later, I put the 35-mm back on the shelf and upgraded to a very basic Kodak Easy Share digital camera. Again, nothing fancy. However, it serves its purpose: capturing the beauty that exists on this wonderful continent.
This book chronicles my journeys across North America. These photos were taken during various seasons from 2005 to 2008.
I hope you appreciate them.
My day job is as a 7th grade math teacher. However, I have grown to love photography as a hobby. Everywhere I go, I look for the perfect photo. Inside my book "See.," you will see my first collection of photographs. As in life, nothing is perfect. I am not yet a great photographer, but I think I am on my way. I tend to be a random person, thus my photography is the same. You will find oceans, waterfalls, mountains, deserts, and a few people (including myself). You will see candid shots of my family, as well as some of the most beautiful scenery the United States has to offer. Please feel free to comment on my work, as I do plan to release more books in the future. Credit where credit is due: any photos of myself I have included in my book were taken by my dear friend Tonya Kimbrell. All others are mine and mine alone. Thank you for your interest.
