Not all people agree on what is or is not beautiful. We'd be so boring if we did. My purpose for joining this site is different than my reason for staying on this site. Why I joined doesn't matter so much, however, the reason I'm still here is because I'm hoping to have the opportunity to meet people who share the same opinion as I do on beauty; and can actually capture it. I'd love to have some photos I'm proud of now but also ones that I can look back on 30 years from now and remember my life and the shell I lived that life in.
I am not interested in putting on a bikini and throwing myself across the hood of a car. While I don't view it in a negative sense, it's just not beautiful to me. The only photos I have on here, other than snapshots, were taken by an amazing artist who can capture my interpretation of beauty and display it in a thousand different ways. I am still amazed that I had the opportunity not only to meet him but to actually pose for him. His is the type of artistic soul I hope to meet in others.
***Note*** This is really just a hobby for me; not something I do full time. I'm interested in trying different things. I'm not really wanting to do more of the same as I don't have a lot of free time between work, etc. Having said that, if you have a cool idea, I'd love to hear it.
I know this seems almost like an acceptance speech of sorts but I don't care. It's my page and these people are special to me. . . .
Woody Vondracek - Seaboard Studio #216235 Woody broke the ice for me and was the first professional to ever turn a camera on me and was actually willing to do it a second time! He is always willing to listen to my laments and has earned a very special place in my heart.
Brandon Hoe - #19213 Brandon is just like me but he's a photographer; just like me in that he does something else full time. He has turned his passion into a hobby and doesn't have a lot of spare time so I am honored that I had the opportunity to work with him.
Leo Avery III - #8700 Leo is probably the most terrifying of all but is so easy to be around at the same time. It's strange. He opened a whole new world, and perspective on things, for me.
Peter Lamb - #428963 I never would have even attempted anything like this if it weren't for him. He's taught me to stand straighter and not be afraid to try new things. Thanks Peter.
Northlight Studio - #152324 I don't know how I've been so lucky but so far no experience has been negative and working with KC was so great, I had to go back a week later! He is very good at giving direction and making a person quite comfortable with who they are. Beautiful studio, wonderful man.
