This is a great site to spend a few hours reading through to get up to speed on how not to get ripped off as well as what you really need for your port.
My personal style is clean and uncluttered, and this goes for everything in my life - not just photos. I have been shooting for three and a half years now and still lose sleep thinking about different things to try with lighting or theme based shots, so I'm very open to ideas.
I just turned 32 in April and am happily married to an awesome woman. My opinion of nudity is that if it's not adding something directly to the photo, I'd rather you stay dressed.
My only professional goal is to become an undeniably good photographer, but currently I'm working in insurance.
Good news: I'm totally comfortable shooting men or women so don't be shy. With how little I have been in this industry, I am weak on telling people how to pose. It will get better as I'm a fast learner and not afraid to suggest things, but I'd really like to work with people that already have that part down. I really want to shoot anything from highly polished fashion to gritty photos. Feel free to ask/suggest/try anything. The worst that could happen is that we'll just delete it. Simple as that! I also like to have music going so feel free to bring some stuff that gets ya pumped and we'll throw it on!
Rough news: Because I'm here to build photography skills and a solid port, I'm likely to decline friendship requests from people more than 60 minutes away as I don't travel far at all, few exceptions. Also people that have a few hundred "friends" need not apply. I hate to sound uninterested, but this isn't a popularity contest for me. If you are wanting to add me but fit this description, feel free to message me. Ultimately, I just don't want to have to sift through a lot of people in my friends list that I never talk to while trying to find the ones I do shoot with. On the other side, if I'm adding you - I really do want to shoot with you.
Okay, the hard part is over!
Last thing I'm going to throw in here is that my buddy Don Anderson is the one who first put a dslr camera in my hand and has guided me through the learning curves, so if you get a chance to work with him - do so! Who knows, maybe you'll even meet me through him!
