Twenty Years of Picture Making

Lincoln Barbour in High School

Today is my 36th birthday. Which means, 20 years ago I took my first black and white photography class in high school. Though I chose photography as career only 12 years ago, there’s something about the picture making process that has fascinated me since the beginning. I think what I like most about photography is that it never ceases reinventing itself nor does it ever stop challenging me. Not matter how much I master the art form, I constantly want to learn more to improve what I can do with it.

As my approach and style have evolved over the years, I too have changed and grown as a man. I was a kid when I took the picture above and now I’m a dad in the picture below. Photography has always been this reflection of my life and each frame leaves breadcrumbs of where I’ve been and who I was. Going back and looking at work I’ve shot over the years, shows me how far I’ve come and how much farther I can go.

Here’s to the next 20 years of adventure, one frame at a time.

    Wishing you a very Happy Birthday! You have grown so much since I first met you in Vermont! The second picture makes it much easier to see your own father in you. Hoping you have a great day!ReplyCancel
