I am a long-time nature photographer (even taught the subject for a spell) who is expanding into the studio world of portrait, fashion, and fine-art photography. My basic philosophy: "A picture may be worth a thousand words, but who wants to read a thousand word composition if it's poorly written?" I share a 600 square foot studio in Alameda, CA, and look forward to working with models from this site. Given that I need to expand the "people" side of my portfolio, and am working towards perfecting blue screen/green screen techiniques for compositing images, I might be interested in TFCD. Feel free to contact me via email.
