After the workshop, as I reviewed what I’d photographed, I realized how impossible it would’ve been, prior to losing the weight, for me to create the photographs that were the answers to my curiosity; that, as an obese- morbidly obese photographer, I was restricted to shooting at standing eye level with minimal tilting up or down. Now, the health and strength of my body makes it possible for me to shoot where my camera and imagination take me!
If you are a photographer, professional or amateur, who is obese or morbidly obese, or overweight-and-out-of-shape – think about the way your body is restricting your ability to "get the shot." Imagine how your photography could be liberated to develop your vision!
Being a physically engaged photographer has supported the expansion of my vision of the world around me and my participation in it!

I’ve always thought of the road less traveled as being dark and lonely.
I was wrong.
It is bright green and clean summer air.
It is the sound of water and busy bugs.
It is the place where I have found health and peace.
It is the path that has returned me to home.

What am I trying to understand?
I see quiet in this peaceful place.
How did I forget?
Wherever I am, God is.
Well, here I am and all is well.
Here I am breathing in the beautiful lake.
Taking breath step by step.

There were already over 100 on line when Tracey and Michelle arrived just after 7AM, as the announcements had directed. Interviews would begin after 10AM. By 9AM the line snaked in 3 long loops in front of DAVE & BUSTER’S, Duluth. No shade, but temperatures were bearable at first for the thousands who would wait for hours. Most applicants came not only with their team member (this being the "couples" version of "The Biggest Loser"), but a small army of supporters, as well!
Casting Directors Ian Young and Barbara Wulff were pleased with the turn-out.
I’ll be filing more in the next couple of hours; but, right now, my deadline for the AUGUST issue of ORACLE 20-20 magazine comes first!
TO BE CONTINUED!
PS Casting directors Barbara Wulff & Ian Young really take their job to heart. Shown below with your humble correspondent.
