Taking some time off
Bio Updated 06 November 2013
My Name is Donald Bates, but I have gone by DBatesPhoto on the web for over a dozen years. I have been interested in photos since I was a toddler growing up I was always the family camera bug on vacations. In my mid twenties I got serious about photography and went back to college to learn more of the basics and techniques before joining a local model photography group where I really learned a lot and improved my skills and began building my Portfolios which have changed drastically over the years.
Whether it is scenic photos while strolling in the park or portraits in my studio I shoot for one reason only, I love Photography. I specialize in studio and boudoir portraiture, but I love shooting anything interesting. One of my favorite styles is Environmental Portraits not only showing the beauty of the model, but also of the many beautiful and interesting locations all around us.
Photography has been my passion for nearly half my life, but it had to take a back burner as most of my time over the past few years was spent as a Home Care Provider for my father. That kept me pretty busy and took priority over everything including shooting. Now that I am on my own after a long hiatus and little time to clear my head I am back focusing on my photography. I now am in the process of rebuilding and upgrading my home studio until I can find a better location, but I always keep my gear ready to shoot on location with little notice in the Huntsville/Madison County area. With enough notice I typically am available afternoons and evenings elsewhere in the North Alabama area.
Best ways to contact me is directly by email. Be sure to also check out my sites where you can see more of my potfolios and that is where I usually post my most recent shoots
