1. Life should not be about making money, it should be about the experiences you have. Surround yourself by positive people. “Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.” - Charlie Chaplin. I hope those of you that are feeling discouraged right now know that you can do ANYTHING that you put your mind to. “If you dream you can do it.” - Walt Disney. You can be anything you want to be. Anything. So many possibilities waiting to be turned into action. No limits. You have to want it! It may take years, it may take years! You might ask yourself “what if I don’t get there?” Doesn’t exist. There will be people that will say, “you can’t make a living out of this.” “You can’t make a living out of something you love to do.” But are you really living by not doing it? You’re never to young, you’re never to old to start. I’ve had people tell me that I’ll never make it in photography because I didn’t have the drive for it. I’m not the most popular photographer, I’m not famous by any means, and I’ve never won anything for the work I have put out. I’ve been escorted off properties by police twice while doing a shoot. I don’t make a lot of money from this. I do it because I love it. I love it. I love every aspect and I’m not going to let anybody tell me what I can’t do. Neither should you. It’s been a long road getting to this point and I don’t think it’s going to get any easier, but I’m excited.

    This is my younger brother. His name is Josh Pollack. He is 21 years old and attends UTA. He is probably one of the coolest guys I know, and I’m not just saying that because he is my brother. He is incredibly talented, he can draw really well, he has an awesome video game collection, he loves watching movies, he owns a Classic Volkswagen GTI Rabbit and a motorcycle, he to is also a photographer, and he will also enjoys playing games (bored games specifically RISK), and he loves going on adventures. You want to know what the sad thing is? Not that many people outside my close group of friends, family, and girlfriend know these things about Josh. “Why is that?” You may find yourself asking. Well, he is different. And it’s not like he has a birth defect that makes him look different, no. He is different because he was homeschooled, he is different because he likes to wear shirts that are really cool and artsy or have sarcastic sayings on them, he is different because he enjoys playing video games or watching anime or reading manga, he is different because he enjoys British comedy, he is different because he likes to dress really nice and look classy. But again no one knows this. When Josh comes home I hear things like “I’m done trying.” “I give up on trying to talk to girls.” Or “I hate everyone.” Or “is it because people think I’m fat? Stupid? Stink? Look weird?” People at UTA ignore him when he try’s to make friends or talk to people. You’re in college. Not high school. So let’s stop acting like it. I don’t understand why people feel the need to ignore someone’s existence because they are different from you? It’s not right. It’s fucked up. It hurts people. I see my brother now depressed and angry at people. All because people ignored him. Think about this next time you see the “weird” kid sitting all alone. Maybe he just needs a friend and not someone to ignore him or shun him and who knows you might just meet the coolest person ever.

     
  8. So I have some news for y’all! I will be working with Virtuoso Tattoo Shop over the next couple of weeks! How cool is that!? So be expecting a lot of tattoo themed photos to be popping up!
