This passion to create has led me to start The 365 Project.
The 365 project is being accepted by photographers across the nation. It essentially challenges the photographer to take-and-post a photo every day for an entire year. No matter what conditions I'm forced to deal with, I post every single day. This project forces photographers to experiment and shoot something new and unique every day, and it hones the photographer's editing skills and processes. So I accepted this challenge.
From day 1-145, I've learned different shooting and editing styles that improved on the meaning and composition of my photos.
But now, I really want to expand my skills. I want to explore the world, and I want to share my experiences with the world. Strong inspiration fuels my ability to capture powerful images, and lately, that inspiration has been missing.
Why am I on Kickstarter?
It's time for change. I need to venture out beyond the Sunshine state. My ideal plan is to spend 8-9 months traveling towards Northern California, while stopping anywhere along the way to take photos. The millions of images this country boasts will make for a more diverse project. Leaving home will challenge me as a photographer. The rest of the country has so much to offer, and I will have to learn how to shoot in the different landscapes.
For this trip, I need $1,000, which will cover my gas and food. I plan to stop in multiple cities in each state. Though $1,000 is my plan, exceeding that amount will expand the time I can spend on the road taking photos. Ideally, I would love to spend the next nine months finishing my project.
Your money will go far; many of my donors will receive prints and hand-written post cards. Some of you may even enjoy a visit from me during my journey!
So follow me along this nationwide journey; support me and get ready to share some amazing memories.
Risks and challenges
The length of the trip could be only a month long due to not having enough funds. That's why I'm going all in and putting all of my savings into this trip, and trying to cut the cost of travel as much as I can. That is why none of my money will go to accommodate me, I will be mostly staying in my car or in the homes of people I meet along the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
