Took some shots the other night for a water company in Canada. Reminded me of how lucky we are to live in Arizona where it's warm in Feb.
Been getting slammed with email, please forgive me if I don't respond to it all. Not enough man power to get back to everyone. I appreciate all the warm responses, even some of the not so warm ones too. Good feedback on what we can do better. It's funny the folks who are nice, leave their name.
So far I'm making a list of the best ones:
"I hate you trust-afarians who don't have a real job and can fish all the time, get a job and off your dad's tit."
"You need to spell better than a sixth-grader blah-blah-blah-blah."
"You aren't a real photographer, just a dude with an expensive camera."
"If you knew how to use your gear, you wouldn't use a fish eye."
None of which came with names attached. I'm not going to include the ones targeting Hudson, because to be honest it's just sad. There are a handful of guys out there that are a blip on the radar of things. The energy they spend chasing me is silly. A got a couple phone calls from guys, please don't worry, all the BS is just noise. I appreciate your concern sincerely, but that is all it is: noise from folks who should be fishing, but aren't.
By count of IP addresses posting on various sites, there are a total of five "ANGRY Folks" out there, creating all the stir. Think about that in terms of time spent posting. So sad. A couple of them have kids, they choose to chase me instead of spend time with their little ones or go fish. Granted that a couple of those IP addresses are teachers, it is sad they would go after anyone let Hudson.
I never claimed to be some great photographer or writer. A lot of what they say is right. Spelling, grammar all that, is pretty poor. My pictures can definitely get better. Long ways to go on both. In truth I don't mind sharing with you all the journey. It's honest and part of why I think the whole thing relates to folks living it. Not everyone is a professional photographer, or writer, but if your reading this you are most likely an angler. So like you I have flaws too, but without question love to fish.
Hopefully this connects with some of you who called, emailed etc. I sincerely don't want you to get caught up with having to defend me to the few who are ANGRY. Let their anger eat them, I'm going fishing. You should too.
