I have been following other artist from around the country on their blogs and what I loved the most was seeing what they did from day to day. My hometown is New Orleans and I truly believe the world is my canvas! I have been a pro photographer for over 20 years. Photography is my only income and I couldn't imagine doing anything else for a living. I am also a musician that experiences the universe through music, so when you are around me I usually have music jamming in the background. I originally learned photography on film and moved into digital once that world opened. I am PPA Certified and a Photographic Craftsman. I love sharing the knowledge which I have learned as I have taught all around the country to other pro photographers.
The one question I was asked when I was a young photographer was, "What do you want to specialize in?" That question always bothered me because I wanted to learn it all. My love for music, food, fashion and just the art of always getting better, has motivated me to take classes on how to do each field the best I could. I am a huge people person with an infectious positive personality. My high energy of excitement is evident whenever a camera is in my hands. I have always looked at the world as endless possibilities on which all things can be accomplished with hard work and heart!
I capture weddings, high school seniors, food, commercial events, children and even head shots. Someone once told me that you shouldn't be a "Jack of all trades", you should focus on one field. Well, I love talking with people and I love the knowledge photography requires, so if I'm good at both, why shouldn't I apply them towards everything I can?
I am using my "Focused with GK" blog to showcase all that I do from day to day and how I do it all.
