Formally Phrik (pronounced Frick) Photography. I attended Columbus Technical Institute (many years ago) and studied computer science and graphic arts. I started a photography business in 1976 and remained in busines until 1982 when I moved on to other things. I specialized in events and have a passion in custom cars and motorcycle photography. I am now back in business and would like to expand my portfolio. I am an old film guy and creativity was limited to the camera and lens. I really am into the world of digital but I am still pretty much a purest. The light that enters the lens, becomes the ink that hits the paper. Meeting professionals in the industry has become very high on my priorities. Without surrounding your self with these people limits your creativity. Magazines and books are excellent reference material but interfacing with other professionals opens many new opportunities to expand your talent. It is all about the talent whether you are looking thru the viewfinder of a point and shoot or a top-of-the line Hasselblad. For many years I left the old A-1 Canon in the closet. I am so glad the I got it out one more time and lit the fire inside me to photograph once again. I forgot how rewarding it was to make people. places and things more beautiful than life. I am now back and have made the investment in top line digital equipment and ready to shoot the world thru my lens. I am a member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International)
When I book a photo shoot, I like to talk to the person I am going to be working with over the phone. For me, I get to hear their voice and it tells me a bit about their personality. That is something that you lose in email communication.
