******** I am taking an indefinite break from model photography*********
Starting in 2016, I will no longer be working with models. I will be exploring other aspects of photography.
I am a photographer.
That is not as straight forward as it sounds.
Do I make a living doing it? No
Do I have talent? If you ask me that question you will get a shrug. I take photos of what interests me, not what I think people want to see or to win awards.
What won't you photograph? Lots of things. The stuff any normal person wouldn't, dead people, people without their permission, babies (see below), and anything that I could be charged with a felony for.
Why do you take photos? It is a purely selfish endeavor for me. As stated above, it isn't a popularity contest for me. I don't begrudge people who do, it is just not where my motivation is.
What is your motivation? Boredom, a desire to take photos of what ever catches my eye. Have you ever been driving down a road and you nearly snap your neck looking over your shoulder at something you just passed? Cars might be the death of me. I try very hard to control myself while driving.
It is better to walk taking photos, reason against driving given above. I think some of my favorite photos I took while just out for a walk.
Am I a professional? No. I would call myself a passionate amateur, possibly even semi-professional. To be honest the "professionals" I have met have been pricks. Maybe it is just bad luck on my part, but it is the truth. They behave like you cannot photograph the same thing they are, like a building! Do they own the light used to make the photo? I am a very polite person, sometimes to a fault. I may be wrong, but life has yet to show me otherwise.
"To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity." Douglas Adams
"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools." Douglas Adams
"Photograph what makes you happy. It may not have value to anyone else, but it will have value to you." David Allio
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” Scott Adams
Babies. While I don't have a problem with babies, I am actually quite fond of them, but to be 100% honest most babies are not good subjects for photographs! My opinion, my quirk and I will stand by it!
