I look at profiles and wonder how old the information is. I've decided that I'm going to update my bio every so often and add a date to let you know that I am alive and paying attention.
I've been doing model shoots for about a year or two and have had fun. Real life and the necessity of a move kept me from pursuing model photography for a while. I had a new job and a new home and was almost ready to start again. I was getting things together when an issue at work consumed much of my personal time. At least my real job is remaining steady. I could probably shoot on speedlights right now. A studio is still in the future.
My primary portfolio is made of what I hope will be my best shots. If you want a quick sense of me as a photographer, this is the album where you should look. I've put additional photos in my other albums. For now, they are organized in a NSFW and SFW format. When I have more pictures to include, I will organize them differently.
I don't have a single style that I'm trying to follow. I've enjoyed trying a few different things, and I'd like to try as many genres as I find models who want to shoot. In the long run, I think most of my pictures will probably fit some kind of lifestyle genre. If a genie popped out of a bottle and offered me any kind of shoot that I'd like, I'd pick a good swimsuit shoot. I'd love to do outdoor shoots in Wyoming's beautiful scenery.
The last two paragraphs here are from the original bio I wrote to be accepted on the site. They are still applicable, so I'll leave them in the bio.
I started in photography in the 80's taking pictures inside of caves. Because caves have zero light, they are a great place to learn photography. Photography is about light, and in a cave, the photographer has to provide all of the light and learn to manage all of the shadows. I loved shooting that way and learning tricks of light and shadows. I'm also a corrosion/materials engineer by profession. Much of my failure analysis work has involved photographing fracture surfaces and the texture of corroded metal. Again, I learned to use light and shadow to highlight features that were critical to understanding the failure mechanisms.
I like animals and have done a bit of wildlife and pet photography. Capturing the beauty of living things is a different challenge from capturing the beauty of scenes and inanimate objects. Showing the beauty of both subjects is rewarding.
