Over the next few weeks I will continue to set up galleries as I move my images here from flickr and model mayhem. This site will also allow me to share a lot of images that I was not able to post on my free flickr or MM accounts.
I have taken up photography to explore my creative side. My career in technology and management, while rewarding and generally fun, has not given me the opportunity to grow in this area. I just finished a photography course at UCSD, "Nature Photography: From Vision to Print" http://extension.ucsd.edu/studyarea/index.cfm?vAction=singleCourse&vCourse=ART-40081&vsacategoryid=7&vStudyAreaID=1, with Leland Foerster. This course covered composition, printing, display, and what art directors look for in how your portfolio is presented. It was perfect for me. I have a good grasp of the technology and mechanics of photography and need to work on developing my vision as an artist.
I am exploring many different areas of photography as I search for my muse. I enjoy shooting fashion, fitness, cosplay, figure studies, nature, landscapes, botanicals, and combinations of those. Yes, this will lead to a diverse portfolio as I explore and experiment.
If you are looking for a photographer, I am generally interested in discussing TF* shoots. If you have very specific needs that don't complement my portfolio I will probably ask for compensation - but let's talk.
I am also willing to work as an assistant. I have many years of experience in the business and technical world leading sometimes very large teams to complete complex projects on time and on budget. If you want someone to help in that kind of role with your photography, let's talk.
