I am a Pastor, Author, and Photographer. Husband of one, father of three (and don't get the two confused!)
Photography has become one of my great passions, and I strive to use my gifts to not only share the beauty of the world but also to help others. I write articles, do equipment reviews, and network with other photographers and professionals in other fields to help them develop their own skills. My photography business is called "Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott", chosen because I want my work to tell stories and share the wonders around us.
Photographers see things that most people miss, and the magic of photography is when you actually are able to catch those fleeting moments of beauty in nature, people, or ordinary objects. My work can be seen in a variety of places:

"I finally found the time to write my testimonial for You. You absolutely deserve it. I really like every single picture You have posted so far. You never posted insignificant pictures. You have a great care of the details and Your pictures are always clean, sharp, correctly lighted and detailed. Finally I love the way You process the images; Your style is easily recognizable and You are a really good photographer."

Stephen Champness says:
"Dustin's Photographic skills are outstanding. An amazing Photostream with so many different styles of Photography professionally taken with immaculate processing. What I really love about Dustin's Photostream is the attention to detail, I am no expert in Photography but he always seems to capture the right mood for the Photo he has taken and in turn has inspired me to think about my shots and try to become a better Photographer myself. Dustin's other great quality is the time he takes in visiting other people's Photostream's (including my own) offering advice and encouragement. Dustin is definitely someone to follow on Flickr, a nice guy with a stunning Photostream."
