I got into photography about a year and a half ago while I was home recovering from an injury I received in Afghanistan. Photography has always intrigued me but I never had the courage to try it out. One day I decided to see what I could do with a camera and I have been in love with it ever since.
I started out taking pictures of cars, my son, my family, and my pets but then moved into portraitures due to some of my friends wanting theirs' taken. One goal I have is just to be able to take someone's portrait and have them smiling and tell me what amazing pictures I can take. I'm not really in this for the money.
Photography is something I got into because I got tired of seeing people's awesome pictures of their cars so I decided I wanted to be able to take my own. I always intended for it just to be a hobby but a lot of my friends and peers have been telling me I should start getting more serious with it. So right now, I would just like to meet people, do some shoots and expand my portfolio. I currently take pictures for Black River Rollers Derby Team, but I am always available on weekends to take pictures. Best way to contact me is through PM and email.
I am willing to travel out of state when I have a three or four day weekend. The only compensation I ask for is TFP/TFCD. Being that photography is a hobby for me, I shoot out of my apartment in the empty spare room and outdoors to minimize cost.
