Colbs Photography

For the last two weeks Sar has been at Girls camp and Cheer camp. So, I've obviously been board and decided to do this post............
So, a little hobby/passion of mine is taking photos. I love it!!! I love it soo much that while Sar and I are driving around I'm always commenting on what I think would make a cool photo or what not. I'd hate to be married to a person like me. I'm always wanting to turn around and go back or stop on the side of a road.... When Sar and I were dating I always had a camera with me, not just one but two. That was in the day of 35mm camera's, so I'd always have a camera with black and white film and the other with regular color film. Needless to say we had a good number of photos for our wedding day. Sar sure is a great sport, for putting up with me.
I started to really enjoy photography when I was "a little shit" in my father's terms. I was around ten years old and was given my very own camera. I took photos of everything, until one day I dropped it in the pool and my Mom said she wasn't going to replace it, so tuff luck. Maybe she was happy cause she was done with developing photos with nobody in them and of stupid random things.
later on I really got into photography when high school came around. I shot my very first wedding when I was a senior. I also began shooting photos of some of the girls in high school. Their moms would catch wind of it and have me photograph there girls, usually we'd go out to the garden park ward. (classic photographers heaven). It was fun.
After High School I started college, and ran into a photographer name Scott Green. He had his own photography business and mainly shot models and did weddings etc. I worked with him as an "aprentice" for almost a year. and learned a lot about the body and how to position it in certain ways etc.... I will say I didn't make jack but it sure was fun, . That's what I think photography is all about, the "fun". So, just to share some of that fun-ness I've created a blog and stuck just a bunch of stuff on it. I think next month I'll stick a bunch of my photoshop stuff on it too. so here it is, enjoy. There is a ton, and not all will fit on one page so you need to click on the titles on the right to open more. (fyi)

I miss the darkroom so much!! Bountiful High's was nicer than Weber State's if you can imagine. Pacific's (Oregon) was brand new so I was spoiled there. That is and was my favorite part of photography. Glad to see you still love it as much as you did in High School :)
