Just a few words about me. I have been taking photographs for a very long time. I started with 35mm film and have explored 2 1/4 as well as 4×5 sheet film cameras. I transitioned to Digital once I was satisfied the digital images were comparable in both color and depth of image. I am very happy shooting with Canon DSLR cameras. I try to shoot for the best image I can. I am not a fan of photo-shopped images. I do not alter the images with the exception of minor cropping. I do not have a problem if you wish to take an image and photo-shop it.
I was asked who are my photography heroes:
- Steve McCurry for his photojournalism.
- Edward Weston for his large format photography.
- Eric Lafforgue for his single subject images.
- Andreas Gursky for his neat and organized images.
There are many more photographers whose work I admire.
I believe that taking pictures should be fun for those being photographed.
I currently use Canon T6s with a variety of lens. The Canon T6s is a high quality crop sensor digital single lens reflex (DSLR).
I am available for a variety of events: parties, award ceremonies, backyard weddings, political headshots, kids parties, receptions, chamber events, community events and etc. When at these and other events, I have no problems with those that I photographed, handing me their cell phones/cameras, so I can give them a special memory that they can share.
I have found for the most part, my images do not normally need to be photo-shopped, maybe a little tweak or cropping, so I can provide a very quick turn around of the digital images.
