Not so typical newbie looking to shoot lots of stuff for portfolio, happy to do TFCD stuff with emerging talent.
Working, experienced film maker seeking to expand skill set in fine art photography. I have extensive background in cinematography so my lighting and art direction concepts are usually movie-inspired. I'm on model mayhem to build my portfolio so I can find other types of photo work, and to make contacts with cool creative people in both Austin and Los Angeles where I split my time.
I am exploring many styles of photo work... and learning post production techniques as well on a steep learning curve. My strengths are that I am creative and have a good eye for aesthetic beauty and I'm very resourceful. I can make glamorous or rich images with minimal expense or effort. I suppose my weakness is also one of my strengths - I work with good but minimal gear in order to be nimble and quick.
I have a film background, including polaroid, pinhole and darkroom B+W 35mm SLR but have moved on to the digital world, somewhat reluctantly at first like many but now embracing it as the tech comes up to spec. Now a proud "hi-tech low-life"
