To GOD be the Power & Glory & Honor forever, Amen!
I have always enjoyed gazing upon the beautiful pictures created by “professionals.” When I saw their visions in print, I wanted a copy to keep for myself. Then I noticed the purchase price, and I went home empty handed and unfulfilled. When I bought my first good camera in February 2004 - a 5 megapixel Sony, 4x optical zoom, with some manual features- I was free to explore the world through a lens. The camera was just for fun at first- documenting outings, immortalizing friends, and capturing the simple pleasures of life. Then I realized that hobby and aspiration can meet where nature sparks imagination.
Inspired by what I saw in art studios, I started taking nature photographs. Being in the right place at the right time is part of the secret. The rest is letting nature speak to me. I took pictures, and more pictures. Some of them were Good, some were Bad, and many were Ugly. But the rare few, made it into my “Just the Good Stuff” folders & now here on Wes Photos.
I had the Sony a100, but now have an even better one: a700. Single Lens Reflex (SLR) Camera- 12 megapixel, full manual control, three lenses, & new super flash. I am still capturing God’s creation on earth as much as I can with my busy schedule. I later want to become a middle school math & electives teacher.
My pictures are for me, and also for the world. You can download the 800x600 files now for free (for personal use only), & they are also available for purchase, as high quality prints, just above costs, so all have a chance to own something they admire. No one has to walk away, as I once did, empty handed and unfulfilled.

At my start, only nine months elapsed before I hit the 10,000 picture
Thank You Jesus Christ, for everything! Jesus is my Savior, Friend, Example, Lord, King, Provider, Protector, Healer, Peace Keeper, Life Manager, Agent- He is my everything! I love, worship, & praise Jesus, & in return He shows me love & provides for me more than I need. Christ is perfect peace. We make a good team.
Also, many thanks to my brother, Adam, for making it possible to purchase my first Digital SLR Camera, & to Brittany for the upgrade! In addition I thank my dad, Larry, for teaching me many aspects of art & photography, that have helped shape me & my creativity to what I am today. Thank YOU: my friends, family, teachers, mentors, & folks I have met along my short yet eventful life; for encouragement & continued support.
Thank You, in HIS love,
Holy Holy Holy, Is The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, Who Was & Is & Is To Come!
