Currently taking a break from education, and I am very much interested in becoming a commercial portrait photographer. Hopefully somewhere in the sports genre but at the same time, I have an interest in fashion photography and would like to expand my knowledge of different lighting and working with different types of people in the industry. What I am hoping to obtain from this site is more experience with contacting people for various shoots so that I can build up a good solid portfolio for the future. I also have some/little experience within the studio due to former college projects etc.
Photographers that inspire me and I hope to emulate one day: Joel Grimes, Peter Yang, Lee Friedlander, Venetia Dearden. Still trying to find my own sort of style but I am willing and open to try anything, and would like the models input for which direction they want to head in at shoots as well as my own. One of my most favourite types of lighting is natural lighting, in studio or on location. I love how "pure" the light is. For me, it's the best kind of lighting there is.
Cameras I own or am comfortable with using: Canon 400D DLSR with a 18-55mm and 70-300 mm lenses currently, Minolta Dynax 500si 35mm SLR with a 28-80mm lens.

Please note that I currently do not do any nude (in any form) shoots, so I won't be accepting any requests regarding this. Sorry.
