Photography is a spare time hobby and passion for me. I am in this for the sake of the art and not necessarily to make bank, although if that ever were to happen I wouldn't say no to it. Regardless, I consider myself an amateur who hopes to further his knowledge/experience by meeting and working with amateurs and professionals alike on this site and others. I tend to work outdoors -- I love the idea of using any available surroundings as a potential backdrop. I love to shoot both in color and in black and white. I love the realistic look and feel of film, but now finally have entered into the digital realm. I will continue to use both formats. I also do not tend to use photoshop and the like for anything more than a tiny touch-up or crop. I live and work in Washington, DC but am not completely unwilling to travel to accomodate a potential project. Anyone can best contact me through email -- firstname.lastname@example.org The bottom line is this -- photography is something that I never thought I would ever be able to do, but through the compliments and confidence instilled by many friends I have endeavored to give it a try. I hope that you like what you see!
At the behest of a new found friend, I will tell you about a chapter in my life. At age 10 I was diagnosed with a malignant Cancer. I spent almost 3 years fighting in and out of the hosptial undergoing various operations, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Through the countless thoughts and prayers of so many and the dedicated, endless care I received while in the hospital I began my remission on July 1st, 1987. Feeling the need to give back what I received, I obtained my BSN, RN in '97 and have worked in a non-profit medical and recovery facility for the homeless here in DC for the past 10 1/2 years. The photography I do in my spare time allows me to show an artistic side of me that I still don't believe exists. Thanks to all who continue to support and encourage me to further study and practice the art.
