Photography saved my life. Photography is my religion.

I take pictures to feel something other than what I'm feeling. I take pictures to capture feeling. I take pictures because I'm bored. I take pictures because even if I don't have a camera I am always taking pictures in my head--since birth practically. I take pictures of just about anything. I love people and decay the most though.

I am constantly trying to be a better photographer, better editor, better thinker, better person.

As Ben Gibbard once sang: I want life in every word to the extent that it's absurd.

"Great art is about conflict and pain and guilt and longing and love."

    "Rachel.::.K is good at this photography thing... I mean really good! She knows how to shoot, and knows how to process, and those two things (plus a lot of others) help her make some amazing images. Sometimes I see a photo of hers and go "Dammit self! Why can't you do that!?!" and I think someday, maybe I will... And hey, Rachel.::.K also helped with putting on the first PhotoCamp in Milwaukee, so that's a cool little factoid for you! Thanks Rachel.::.K!"

    "Never has the work, attitude, dedication and passion for photography in another been so pivotal in inspiring me.

    Rachel is the personification of artistic drive. She doesn't do it for plaudits, she doesn't do it for anyone else - she does it because on some level - she has to. It's a need. And that is a truly special thing.

    You can see how much of herself she invests in her photography.

    I am forever in debt to her - and flickr - for finding my photography soul-mate."
