Da Big One

The Northeast has now officially been hammered by snow.... However, I can't say I'm not glad. Why? Well, now my friends and I can finally build our little snowboard park in the back of Luke Duke's house and rip it up. << More on that later, for now, here are a few pics from the storm.

One Last Hurrah

2010.........If I could describe it in one word, I think it would be "amazing". I figured, what a better way to finish and bring in 2011, than by editing one of the very first videos I shot. That's right - the Kanc Cruise!! I know, I know... Many of you where wondering, what ever happened?? To be honest, I just wasn't happy with the footage and no matter what I tried, I couldn't put it together. I figured I should at least give it another go - So I did, and came up with this. Not my favorite of edits, but then again it was one of my first shoots of the year. Looking back, I can see how I progressed throughout the rest of the shoots, but more importantly what I've learned. Failed attempts at new techniques where common but with each failure came a new lessoned learned. The fact that I've failed or messed up really doesn't discourage me anymore, but rather fuels my determination to get better. Being good at something does not happen overnight or magically, and if anyone tells you it does - they are wrong. To be good at anything - and I mean anything - you need determination, dedication, perseverance, PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE and in a way, courage. I say courage because you can't be afraid of failure or trying something new and that I think is something we can all apply to everyday life. I don't wan't to get too sentimental on all of you so I'll finish with saying:

Thank you to all of you who have helped me get to where I am now, and those of you who continue to view and follow this site!! So get ready because 2011 is going to be AWESOME!!!
