UPDATE 2/19/2013: Four years have passed and my work has expanded, a lot more confident in my work and have begun shooting other people's portfolio now. Still loving the expressive artistic side. Also starting to integrate my business into my photography and vice versa, so soon I will have Chainmaille works modeled and up.
I have been shooting my friends and family for years, but still see myself as an amateur with a lot to learn. My main goal it to expand my circle of influences and develop new skills with new people to work with. The majority of what I have done has been TFP/TFCD which has worked well for all parties involved.
Every shoot is a learning experience for everyone involved, especially me. I realized quickly that a technique that works one day isn't always going to work the next day. I do shoot a lot of candid style pictures, most of the time in outdoor settings. I have also found a great deal of success by mixing B&W and Sepia in with Color.
I am excited at the opportunity to work with different people and expand my knowledge and my portfolio each time.
