The Past Few Weeks at RGP

What an interesting few weeks it’s been! Just when you think you know what you are doing, and which direction you are headed, life gives you a fork in the road. Robert likes to weigh it all out, check facts, and measure options. Not me, I prefer to make quick decisions and drag whoever I’m with along for the ride. Hindsight has always been a crucial part of my life. When I look back on where I’ve been, I can always pin point it to the fork in the road. Sometimes those choices were hard to make, sometimes they were blind leaps of faith. Either way, once I made the decision to go toward that new goal, the path became clear.

This last bump took us a bit away from photography and more into writing. We self-published our first book, “I, Creator” and due to the great public response, we are now applying for our ISBN numbers, and are set to do a proper book launch by the end of the month. You may have noticed some of our posts being added to E-How and Associated Content, and we are being asked for more and more.

We have had a long hard year, and have learned quite a bit about our business and our relationship. Robert and I have grown stronger in both, a united front to face this world. Through the learning process, we had to do quite a bit of self-evaluation. We learned that even though you live and work 24/7 with someone, you still need to talk TO them and interact WITH them. We learned that good friends are worth their weight in gold. We learned that you CAN change the way you think, and that sometimes you just have to BELIEVE.

We’re real grateful to be able to share our journey with you, and hope that you learn a little bit. Or at least think a bit. Each day is a new adventure to be experienced with your eyes wide open.

For the birds

When you have parrots, there’s always a comment. They laugh when we do. They laugh when the TV laughs. They yell when it gets loud in here, and in the middle of a conversation, Tye will interject the word “Really?”

They are a lot of fun; we really enjoy having them around. And, once in a while, we are able to set up the lights and take some pictures of them.

Princess is our Green Wing Macaw. Her main color is red, only her wings are green and blue. Tye is our Miniature Noble Macaw. He is about one third the size of Princess, but larger than a parakeet.

Persevering Obstacles - The Art of Tearing Down Walls

Personally and professionally, most people encounter obstacles in their paths to growth and success. There are times when the size and number of roadblocks can overshadow your vision, making goals and projects seem insurmountable. It is much easier to step over a molehill, than to climb Mt. Everest.

Being able to assess, adapt and overcome are important qualities for individuals and teams to succeed at conquering difficulties. The manner in which we approach situations often dictates their outcome. Many of the obstacles faced in life can be resolved by applying systematic processes to achieve our goals.

Define and understand the goal; be clear in your visions and understanding of the things you wish to achieve.

Know where you are; assess your current position with accurate understanding of abilities and available resources.

Break it down; dissect large roadblocks in to smaller, more manageable portions that can be measured and accomplished.

Be flexible; there may be several paths that lead to the success of your overall end desire.

Move; nothing gets done without action. Great ideas never manifest into results without taking steps to accomplish them.

Learn; measure the value of your efforts and determine what worked and what did not. Knowledge from failure one day may lead to succeeding the next.

Often it is the journey and not the destination that leads to the greatest personal development. When we strive to continue to learn and grow, the walls encountered today easily become stepping-stones to the next level.

Making Progress

Wow, what a week it’s been! We’ve been working hard on getting some of the backlogged work ready for stock. Most of the work we shoot is regular commercial, so we put it up on Microstock. But there are some shots that are just a step better. Maybe it’s the angle it’s shot, or the subject matter, or it’s just too “artsy” for Micros. Those are the shots we put up at Midstock. Our current portfolio is at Alamy Stock photography by Robert Gebbie at Alamy

Here are some of the images we hope the inspectors like as much as we do!
