I have been interested in photography for many years and have taken many shots over that time. I shot 35mm until I got my first digital in 2000 and have been shooting with Canon equipment ever since. Currently, I am using a Canon EOS 20D. I recently added a T5i as well. Great ISO range and 18MP. Fantastic for low light apps like trying to shoot at a Johnny Winter show! While, I have been shooting concerts, other live events and local car shows for some time, I have also been photographing the Cascade Mountain Range (think Mt. St. Helens) since 2006.
I really enjoyed nature photography and thought that that was what I wanted to do until I went to school and got "turned on" to studio work. I had no idea what I was missing until then! I started buying my own lights and backdrops while still attending classes and finished school with a 4.0 GPA. I often speak with other photographers and try to never miss an opportunity to pick their brains and contribute when I can.
I joined this group in order to find new people to work with. I am always looking for new models but I would also like to find people who do hair, make-up and fashion design. Maybe even body painters. I feel that I am pretty open minded and willing to try almost anything when it comes to photography. I also feel that I should explain how I feel about getting paid. Paid work is fantastic!!! But, I would rather work for free if it meant being able to produce a great piece of art. It's the same thing when talking about experience. I would love to work with experienced people, but really, experience is not as important (to me) as vision. If someone has a plan (or a vision) concerning a shoot that they want to do, I will be onboard, to help make the project come to life. If any of this appeals to you, then don't be shy, contact me and lets start getting some work done!
