Never ‘Work’ Again — On Following Your Passion with Photographer Ian Ruhter [When Dreams Collide]

They say that when you leave your old life behind and walk the path you’re meant to be on, be prepared to leave some friends behind, and be prepared to make new ones. This has definitely been the case on my own personal path. When I finally ditched the things in my life that everyone else wanted me to do and began a fulltime charge of my life’s dream of being an artist, it put my life on a collision course with energy, vitality, and some seriously creative / talented people who have both inspired me and strengthened my resolve to continue on this path. That’s not to say shit doesn’t get hard, and that there’s an unending amount of work…but it’s just one kind of work – the kind that draws you in – not the kind that sinks your soul.

One of those cool people I’ve met along the way is my homie Ian Ruhter, another man on a mission to be different, not just better. If you keep your eyes peeled here on my blog, you know that one of the ways he’s done that is through his most recent personal project titled “Silver and Light,” in which he creates photographic art using a wet plate process that dates back to the 1850s with a camera the size of a truck. I had Ian on the show last year to demonstrate his technique and teach me how to wet plat. (Episode at the bottom of this post)

Ian’s latest video posted up top, “When Dreams Collide,” he documents his journey before our meeting -across the past and present and up to his drop-in on #cjLIVE. This particular vid, while beautifully shot, really delivers on how he crossing all boundaries and bowled through all obstacles to follow his dreams. If you need to abandon your current dead-end path, it’s worth your time.

Remember Points2Shop will never send you anything without
your consent or sell your personal information anywhere,
EVER. Either the application that scans the QR Code
retrieves the geo information by using GPS and cell tower triangulation (a – GPS) or the URL encoded
in the QR Code itself is associated with a location. I’ll estimate that this
is an about 80% useful category. While the adoption of QR codes in some markets has been slow to begin (particularly in markets such as the United States, where competing
standards such as Data Matrix exist), the technology is gaining some traction in the smartphone market.
Unless you ignore my advice and submit your personal information to the data collection offers, in which case that’s not Points2Shop sending you junk mail,
that’s the company you gave your information to.
