I want to thank all my friends both on MM and outside for all the support with all I have been dealing with lately! Over this year (2013) I have been rendered immobile due to medical issues. Let me tell you, vertigo sounds silly, but it really sucks when you constantly feel like you're going to fall over after being in a car. This has basically killed my ability to do location shoots, which was my primary focus and shut down what I had as my photography business.
After a lot debate, the only option left for me at the moment to continue shooting is to convert a small part of my home into a studio to work on product photography, studio style shots, headshots, and photo-manipulations. I wanted to put this out there up front because I know how awkward it can be going to a photographer's home, especially before a professional relationship has been established (heck it's awkward opening my home to new people sometimes too!).
You can check out my manipulations on my DeviantArt page here: http://chriswerx.deviantart.com/
I always strive to make every shoot comfortable and professional, however, with my current travel restrictions, if you are not comfortable being photographed in a home studio then I probably would not be a good choice as a photographer for you. That being said, if you like my style please get in touch. I do shoot TFP occasionally while I feel well enough, so if you need to expand your portfolio as well it is a mutually beneficial option.
I think that's about it for updates. Thanks for dropping by!
