I recently relocated to the South Bay area of Norcal. I am still settling in from the move, but looking to restart my photography.
My motivation is not financial: I get a kick out of helping fellow artists, be they models, bands, artisans, dancers or what have you. I am most comfortable approaching a shoot as a creative collaboration of all those involved.
I own my own gear. I am equipped for portable lighting setups (speedlites, not studio strobes), outdoors (reflector) and available light shots (f/1.8, f/2.0, f/2.8).
