Thank you for taking the time to visit. My name is Kris Fish, and I am. I realize that the previous sentence is incomplete, but that’s because I am incomplete. You see, I am… a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a coach, a student, a teacher, a firefighter, an EMT, an officer, a friend, a photographer, a mentor. I am also unsure, uncomfortable, afraid, apprehensive…yet confident, steadfast, outspoken, firm in my beliefs, supportive, cynical, funny, brave, trustworthy. With all of this going on inside of me, how could I possibly be incomplete? Quite simply, because I do not know what life holds around the corner for me. I was recently diagnosed with a disease called sarcoidosis. Not a lot is known about sarcoid other than that it can affect any organ in the body at any time without warning. It is generally a benign disease, but there are some that have chronic symptoms. Most people enter remission (there is no cure), others do not. They suffer daily and it can prove fatal (the comedian Bernie Mac died of pneumonia complicated by sarcoid). So far it has affected my lymph nodes causing me a great deal of pain and pressure in my chest. We’re still meeting with specialists to see if any other systems have been impacted and to try to determine the best course of action. However, this has kept me from being able to work, attend school, drive, play with my kids, sleep in my own bed. It has also left me with some idle time…time that I have used to assemble this blog. My beginnings in photography are outlined below. I hope you enjoy the images I post and I welcome any feedback, thoughts, ideas, or requests you may have. I will try to update this blog weekly, both photographically and personally, unless circumstances dictate otherwise and I have more frequent updates. If you see any images you like, feel free to contact me as all are for sale in a variety of formats. If you have an idea or concept that you would like me to consider exploring photographically, let me know. I’m happy to work by request! Again, thank you.
