This past Jan I traveled to Cancun to site see with my family. Not too many people are aware though, that I attended the educational What If Conference in Mexico as well, and met a tribe full of love and inspiration. I am grateful for the opportunity to have met a group of like-minded artists- mostly photographers, but certainly all creative geniuses.
The support to follow my heart into photography from those at the conference was something I didn't expect, but I've come to find people are only strange when they are strangers. They welcomed me without judgement and I'm forever grateful.
Another side story- for you faithful lovers of tales- about a decade ago one of my old friends named Stark lectured me about unwise decisions, that I was too smart to not be brave.
I started Velzy and Reed from this mantra. And I'm forever grateful.
