I am an experienced amateur. I've been taking photographs for many years, most of my images are scenics although I do enjoy working with models both amateur and professional. I sometimes pay to work with pros but I most often work for tf with other amateurs. People that are interested in creating art & developing their portfolio like me but have a career in another area (healthcare). I'd like to network with local & regional models of all skill levels.
I am interested in many different genre, my port is a good reflection of what I like to shoot. I like to work primarily in natural light & outdoors when possible. I do shoot nudes but I always work within the comfort level/boundaries of the model. I try to always give credit when possible, non-credited images are amateurs not on MM.
“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” Ernst Haas
What makes photography a strange invention is that its primary raw materials are light and time. John Berger
The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.
I take pictures like Jimmy Page, and I play guitar like Ansel Adams. - Anonymous
To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you
hit the target.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed." - Albert Einstein
