Today Is My Birthday!

Copyright: Michael Ares

Today is a special day for me as I turn 22 years old today.

It’s been three years now that I’ve been doing photography. Started doing photography when I was 19 years old and have come a long way in my photography and have grown so much as a person.

I remember on my 20th birthday getting my very first camera, the Nikon D7000. I remember the feeling of being really excited once I saw it. I still use that camera today and will most likely keep using it for a long while.

Now I’m 22 and have been shooting the streets of Los Angeles for a year and a half now.

My has time flown by.

I’m still learning my craft, but am still trying to shoot as often as I can. I have a lot of goals that I would like to accomplish with in my photography and they may not be completed by my 23rd birthday, but I’m hoping they will be later on in life no matter how long it takes.

I thank God for the gift and passion that He has given me. And I love my life, my family and friends. You guys are awesome and I’m very thankful for you all and for your support!

Wish me luck for another year of loving life and taking photographs.

– Michael.

P.S. Took this photo today as I treated myself to some street shooting in Long Beach. My first photograph as a 22 year old!
