Here's the update for Me 2.0. I'm evolving; I guess we're all evolving, in one way or another. My evolution, as a photographer, anyway, is moving towards more technical aspects of photography, using light more effectively, and being more deliberate in my work. A year ago, I said that I was primarily a nature & wildlife photographer who was doing more work with people. I don't think I can accurately say that anymore; after a quick review of my images, I have very little in the way of nature and wildlife in the last year, and lots and lots of work with people.
As I was learning about the technical aspects of photography and using light, I took a studio workshop, just for fun, and wound up enjoying it a lot more than I was expecting. I learned more about lighting and photographing people (and I'm still learning). Now that I have a little more experience with lighting, I'm trying to do some different things - I'm taking folks to remote locations, trying to combine genres of nature photography with lighting and working with people. I'm still learning, but I'm having a lot of fun doing it.
I'm motivated by 2 things - I want to have fun, and I want to learn. And the more I learn, the better able I am able to capture any photographic visions. I often say, I don't have an artistic bone in my body, I'm just a guy who likes foxes. Despite that, I enjoy what I'm doing. I try to NOT do what everyone else is doing, so you'll see me combining genres or trying some different things from time to time. If there's a crowd, I'm heading in the other direction.
I'm a Sony guy - I've used Sony cameras exclusively since 2006, starting with the a100. I'm now using E-mount cameras withe native E-mount glass and a variety of adapted lenses.
My current gear list is evolving:
Thanks for checking out my work.
A few years ago, I did a brief write up in Outdoor Photographer. I've also had some article published in various other online blogs and web sites (none of which I am able to locate - well, that was a few years ago . . .)
