My Big Plans for 2018Remove all my photos of young people and kids so that all the perverts can't add them to their porn galleries.
It's been a pain to try to keep up with blocking a pervert every time one saves my photo to a porn gallery. I'd rather not even share those photos on this site.
So no more kids swimming, gymnastics, dance recitals, playing, or modeling. This proves what I've always said, the good people have to pay for the sins of the bad. You can thank a pervert for that.
I just don't get itI just don't get it. What is it with foot fetish? How are people aroused by feet? I'm not condeming, but I find it to be rather odd, and to some extent, rather creepy. I had joined a DA group called Fight Night where I was submitting photos of my taekwondo students sparring. I was happy to see the number of favorites go up on those photos, until I noticed that most of the people faving them had galleries full of bare feet. It creeped me out that my 8 - 10 year old students were in a fetish gallery. So I blocked those people just to remove my photos from their galleries. Then I quit the group.
Another thing that gets me in a funk is bondage. How can someone get aroused by a photo of a woman tied up and gaged? That to me is just sick.
I've always been at war with the pedophiles wanting to fav my photos, now its the feet fetish folks. I don't have to worry about the bondage people because nothing I have would be of interest to them.
Austin and NationalsI spent the last week of June in Austin, Texas at the 2011 AAU Taekwondo National Championships. I run my own Taekwondo school in the New Orleans area and had 10 students qualify for Nationals, however, only four could make the trip. We did great. All four placed in each event they competed. We came home with seven medals; four silver and three bronze.
While in Austin I really didn't have too much time to tour around and take many photos, but I'll post my favorites of the ones I did take. At the National Championship I was coaching, so either my daughter (Shannon) of one of the parents took the photos of the action. I was able to take some photos at the competition of my friends from other states. I'll be posting tournamnet photos soon.
I hope you enjoy them.
My ghost came backMy house has a ghost. We've had activity since we moved there in 1991.
A few weeks ago I lost something of much sentimental value to me. I had it in my hands that morning and put it in a box for safe keeping. That evening it was gone. I found it last night on a shelf in my den where I would never leave it. No one else in my family put it there. (twilight zone music starts now....).

New Gymnastics PhotosI shot the USA Gymnastics Region 8 Championships over the weekend. I've got some great photos, dispite the terrible lighting in the arena. A DeviantArt member once told me that if I don't want perverts adding my photos to their favorites, then don't post them. So I won't be posting any. You can thank the perverts. But you gotta trust me, the pics are awesome!
Because of the sins of others....I have removed all my photos of kids, teens and young adult models from my Facebook page. The only two albums are New Orleans scenery photos and an album for my Taekwondo school. Why? Because I have been punished for the sins of others.
Not long after starting to do portrait photography I discovered that many of the young adult female models had jealous, possessive boyfriends or husbands. This brought a lot of drama not only into their relationships, but also to the photo sessions. In private chats or messages with the young ladies I heard tale upon tale about how awful the male partner was. How he didn't want the girl to model and how he thought I was a pervert for taking photos of females (it doesn't matter that they were always fully clothed). I saw several marriages dissolve and other relationships break up. I was even threatened with violence by several male partners.
I always had a rule that no model would ever have to take a photo he/she didn't want to take or was unc
Busy weeks aheadI have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. There are so many things I'd love to do but I hate that I don't have enough time.
Currently I am setting up my nativity village scene in my house. It takes about 2 weeks to construct. Expect to see photos when I'm done.
I am also still printing Little Angel Chrostmas cards to fill the orders I've taken. See http://www.kicksphotography.com/cards.html
I am also still editing photos from two portrait sessions I did last week.
Tonight I have a Christmas party in the French Quarter.
Friday evening I'll be shooting the Louisiana High School Football State Championships in the Superdome.
Saturday morning I'll shoot a gymnastics meet and then head over to the Superdome for the evening football games.
Sunday morning I'll be back at the gymnastics meet.
Tuesday I'm shooting a men's club Lombardi Party. I'll take about 70 - 100 portraits of people and families posing with the Lombardi trophy (Saints Superbowl Champs).
All that and still do m

Blacklisted and ScreenshotsI have had these files on my computer for documentation (even though screenshots can be forged, I still feel the need to keep these screenshots as proof because my comments are contestantly being misquoted, hidden, or removed)
I am posting this because I am sound in my choices and how I carry myself and believe that if I were to receive death threats again from this user It will need to be well documented.
A youtube user claimed to be my scratch account (-SkyStar-) and used the channel name SkyStarArtist. They have changed the name of the channel since than, but if you search the old name it still appears as the first result.
The user claimed to be myself from a different website (Scratch) and after asking them to remove my videos and stop claiming my identity this conversation ensued on their youtube discussion page, the youtuber has changed their name and channel names several times but as you can see from my replies to the chain it says "+skyst
NuzRea UpdateHiatus is gonna be a smidge longer than expected. I finally got over my block with the one page I was working on but with recent information about pokemon Sun and Moon coming to light, there's a strong possibility of a sequel :')
I had always wanted to do a sequel with Pokemon Z and I had a pretty solid plot in mind for it but after it was announced we were skipping Z and I had time to mourn I gave up on a sequel but, as I said not one sentence ago "with recent information about Pokemon Sun and Moon coming to light", I've thought up a possible sequel scenario. But of course to know if it would work or not I have to play the game first.
The only reason that is keeping the updates up is because if it will be a sequel, I'd want to be able to start writing elements of it into the story now so they do work as a two part story and it's just just a sequel for the sake of a sequel, you feel?
So postponed until November, I already pre-ordered the game and it takes me like days to finish a

Constructive Criticism MessageNOTE FROM CREATOR: EVERYONE WHO IS MENTIONED IN THIS ARE EITHER EXAMPLES OR BEING SOLELY MENTIONED ABOUT BECAUSE THEY DID SOMETHING NOT OK. PLEASE DO NOT GO HARASS ANYONE MENTIONED HERE. AND IF YOU DECIDE TO CONFRONT ANYONE, BE RESPECTFUL. THANK YOU.
So lately a certain user by the name of SeredyKreisler120 has been really getting on my nerves. Below you can see what type of comments they post. Now this wouldn’t be a problem except they seem very aware that they’re trying to either troll me or try to get involved with my comics when I clearly show I’m not interested. The very first picture shows how they actually are.
I will block them but this does bring up a problem I really need to address for everyone so that way not only will you guys be able to share critiques and ideas in a way that will be good for both of us, but it’ll help me improve and give you guys the best I can do.
