It's been two decades since my very first foray into the concepts of photography and film with a pinhole camera. Fifteen years since my last formal photography class - when I was developing my own film and prints. The wagon wheel images you see above were also taken in black and white film which I developed and then made prints using a silver bath - you know, about sixteen years ago.
Hand crafted photography is something I dearly miss.
My past with formal photography classes also holds a special place in my heart - as it was early shared time with my now adventure, life, and business partner. Back then, he was just a friend who used to trap me in the revolving dark room door. You know for fun, like teenagers do...
While I initially started looking at photojournalism programs out of high school, it's not the path than I ended up going down. I could endlessly theorize as to why or you could just go watch this video of Chase Jarvis at the World Domination Summit explaining how creativity is the new literacy.
However, I never stopped taking photos, especially on my travels. Neither did Zeke.
Seven years ago, I started a blog for which photography became a greater emphasis with each new iteration. Photography was always a big part of our lives offline, but over time we found ourselves stretching for more interesting shots. Seeking greater capacity for our photography, we upgraded to a DSLR four years ago. Since then, we've been re-honing our photography skills in this new digital age, working primarily with travel photography but also dabbling in portrait and product photography. Two years ago, we started our first small business by founding Dog On A Boat Studios as a way to bundle our creative talents together as we continued to dabble away.
This year, we're taking things to the next level.
We're now officially selling a select number of our images, some one which you've seen here on this website before, on Society 6 as wall art, mugs, notebooks, greeting cards, laptop skins, and at the moment one iPhone case!
