The Perfect Set

 PerfectSetOlyX1

On March 22nd I will turn 37 years old. As to how that happened, that is a mystery. Advance to the point where life is today. Photography is my passion, and fitting that passion. The gift I wish I could have this year. Would be the “Perfect Set” a collection of the best Olympus has to offer.

The camera, the body all others inspire to be the OM-D E-M5 Mark II

Then for the perfect collection of lens we would start with the M.Zuiko 75mm f1.8 a great lens for creating the perfect portraits we all love. Next would be M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f2.8 Pro the perfect lens for day trips and creative street photography. Following that would be the M.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 for all the fun and creative ideas that we love to create to capture. Then to finish up the line up, no set is complete with out the ability to get a little closer and the M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f2.8 Pro lends it’s self to reaching out to bring your imagination in to focus.

Yep the perfect set, the one gift I would love to have for my birthday this year. Truth be told, it would be the first gift for a birthday since I was 8 years old. Well if you enjoy my work and would like to help me shine. Click the link below and check out my wish list. Or you can simply donate right here, and when I get enough I will obtain the perfect set.

Currently I am living on disability while working hard at building a life around photography.  Which is why I am making this post, I am hoping to reach out to you.  My friends and followers, to help me both maintain my current course as well as move into the future of my life.  Not able to generate the funding on my own, and with gear that will not allow me to generate work that pays.  I am seeking your help to obtain the perfect set.  May be you can donate the full amount, or just a little.  All your kind support is most welcome.  My target goal, is $5500.00 to insure enough for tax, shipping and extras. 

Thank you for your support and love:)

Intro To Photography

Papa’s Truck

 

 
P1018679-1b
 
 
FordLogo2X

The project is a 1972 Ford F350,
To bring it to life, fulfilling a life goal as well as to provide many opportunities to come.

 

It started way back when I was a freshman in high school. My parents just got divorced, and I ended up living with my Nana & Papa for a semester. Grateful because many years went by with out seeing them. I got to know and love them very deeply in a short period of time. My papa, became very close to me. A man of few words, but big on positive love. Encouraging me to not only do my very best everyday. But to live my life how I wanted to live. That it was ok to stand out from the crowd and go against the norms. If that is what I wanted to do. Knowing I was creative and liked old trucks. We made plans to find an old ford and get it back together by the time I could start driving. We would spend hours looking through news papers and car and truck sales. Even went to see a few. We would discuss every detail. I had the idea that if I could find the right truck, and as long as the body was sound. I wanted to clear coat it, leaving all the visual rust and bumps as well as bruises. My papa, laughed but said he loved my idea. That we would do just that. Making an old truck run and safe as new while maintaining the timeless experiences that truck had gone through. Sadly, Papa passed a way before we ever found a truck. I am now 36 and have stumbled upon that very truck that fits what me and papa had always talked about. I have gone out on a leap of faith and obtained that truck. A 1972 F350, a beautiful beast of a truck. Issues it has a few, and running it is not yet. My plans are to keep it as close to original as possible and finish it just the way papa and I planed.

 

I am writing to you in hopes to gain your support to bring this project to life. Currently I am 36 years old, living on SSDI/Disability. Looking for more in life, and for a way to use my talents and passion to build a life for my self. However I am with out transportation, funding to obtain the tools I need to create a life around my passion. Which is photography, when behind the lens I find the release I need to be part of a normal society. I feel I have the talent to create some amazing pieces of photographic art. Limited however at this time. Putting this truck together will enable me to get out there and pursue my dreams as well as finish something that was started long ago. Currently the truck needs the following in order to be running and road worthy.

1. Starter
2. Fuse Block
3. Battery
4. Seat
5. Steering Wheel
6. All the Lights
7. New tires and wheels all 6, its a dually
8. All the brakes, whole break system
9. Mud Flaps
10. Radio
11. Dash Cover
12. Radiator

As well as the motor, transmission and rear end. Which at this time I am not sure the condition until I can get it started.

 

Completion of this truck will enable me to get out several times a month seeking out opportunities to create my photographic art. As well as allowing me to hopefully generate income slowly. Building up my portfolio and eventually allowing me to be removed from disability. It is very important to me to be able to get my freedom and provide for my self. As I would love to do this project 100% on my own. I can not I live off of $1000.00 a month. Which currently barley cover rent, bills and food. I am not looking for a hand out. I am seeking those that are interested in investing in a man’s future. Giving him a hand up, to achieve the goals that will enable him to be self reliant and a contributing member of society.

 

In closing, from the research I have done so far. Too get the truck on the road. I am looking at $15,000.00 Yes this is an old truck, but it will be worth me having. As I am very capable of working on it and keeping it on the road. Doing the work myself I will know the limits, and life I will have from it. All so if possible to raise $50,000.00 would allow me to as well. Obtain several pieces of much needed equipment and allow me to operate for 2 years. Giving myself time to build a collection of works. I sincerely look forward to your assistance in my professional and personal expansion.

#woctxphotog

To whom it may concern,

I am writing to inform you of a struggling artist. A 36 year old man that struggles with Bi-Polar, and other mental disorders. After being on his own since the age of 14 more or less. Working hard always taking great pride in what he did. Was forced out of the work force around the age of 25-26 for various reasons. After taking a year or two to try and adjust, regroup and move on with life. I was directed by my doctors and legal counsel to seek SSDI disability. As life had proven to much to maintain a normal life. After a few years, I have pursued my passion in life. Photography. More that just an art from, for me it is therapy. I have been searching and working very hard at building a life around it. Only to find, I have no resources to do so. No programs to help someone like me to venture into owing my own business that will allow me to provide for myself. As well allow me to work on my own schedule. I am desperately seeking help to obtain start up and working capital. With little to no friends, and no family. I have no one to reach out to, as well my social media accounts, do not have enough followers to get my work out.

Well you think about that, how about you Ignite my passion to burn a lifetime. Yes I am serious. You see, I have a burning desire to succeed in life. At 36 years old, I have come to the understanding or more so the acceptance that I have mad mistakes in my own life. Many of which will follow me till the end of time. Others already have passed. All have and will continue to teach me lessons, that will enable me to grow as a person.

If you have every visited my site before welcome back, if this is your first time. Check it all out. Yep its a little messy, lots of reading and creativity everywhere.

The base’s of my site is to display my talent, my thoughts and my dreams. However there is so much more than just that. As you read through my blog, and check out my work. One thing is certain, I will continue to grow. I will continue to pursue my goals and dreams.

It may happen today, or it may take a lifetime. But it will happen. What will happen? My work and vision will be shared with the world. You see so many people today are labelled as disabled. But what does that really mean any more? In a point in time when it is common practice to sit idle waiting for someone else to provide. I stand alone. I stand tall. I will provide for my self. Currently I am on disability. Not crazy about it. First it does not afford any kind of life, second it only enforces the negative in life. Instead we should be highlighting the positive.

For me my talent, and passion for photography highlights what I can do. The interaction between people, life and the environment in which we live. Honestly, with out my lens in front of me, I am terrible to be around. My camera opens up the world for me, allows me to be myself. It gives me pride and accomplishment when I am able to capture and create a master piece.

As I could write for hours, I will keep this brief. I need your support, your support in order to actually get my footing. To be able to create a life and life style that will enable me to shed the label of disabled. To give me the chance to support my self. I have 3 goals, the first, $25,000.00 will cover the basics and get the ball rolling. The second is $150,000.00 which will cover all the legal, heavy gear, location, and the security to operate for 2 years to generate my own income. The third and final goal of $300,000.00 will allow me to expand, taking my vision to a whole new level. Providing me the resources to open a state of the art studio, in which I can employ, cater to and bring in talent and help foster someone else’s dreams. As all great ideas have so much more that go into them. The details are set, however I choose not to disclose them. As it has hindered my growth in past endeavours. So check me out, and click on that pesky little donate button and help Ignite my future today.

Thank You
