Hey everybody,

It's taken me a long time to finally write this. Partly because of the reason why I'm writing it in the first place, and partly because I wish I didn't have to.

10 years ago I created Steadishots.org. It was a passion project, and I feel it hit the audience I wanted it to hit in a way that was better than I had originally imagined. People liked it. I was happy. I was at a very different place in my personal and professional life. Now I have a family, a house, and my work is busier than ever. My previous life as a web developer is a more and more distant memory. I'm embarrassed at how neglected the site has been in the last few years. I feel it might be time to pass the torch.

Technology has changed. The Internet has changed. Cameras and filmmaking have changed. I want Steadishots to be able to keep up with it all, but I simply do not have the time to devote to it to see that it does.

I would like to find someone willing to take over the reigns. I would still like to be involved, but in a directorial manner. I've been diligent to make sure the content on the site has been of good quality - content that can actually teach and inspire. I do not want a dumping ground for a bunch of demo reels or poorly designed or executed one take music videos. I want the content to be substantial and I am hoping to find someone that shares that vision. At the same time, the person needs to be well versed in Internet design and development, or at least have access to someone that is. This is where I realize things might be tricky. It's a lot to ask, I know. I figure I'd shoot high and see where it lands.

The site earns me no money, so I have nothing to pass on, unfortunately. I hope someone out there might have a similar passion that I did 10 years ago. And not that I don't still have that passion. It's just now sharing a stage with a busier career, a house, a wife and some kids. It's crowded.

So if anyone out there thinks they or someone they know might be a good fit, please get in touch. I'd love to chat about it.

Thank you to everyone for all your support over the years. It really means a lot, and I'm proud of the project so far.

All the best,
