If you could photograph 1 celebrity or person , who would it be?

there are a couple celeb's on my "i wish to share dinner with" list (Tom Hanks, Ellen, Will Smith.) but the thought of "shooting" then never crossed my mine minus the expected, "Look, i'm sharing a t-bone with Tom Hanks!" The only person i found shooting alot is my son. I dont share all of them with people, but i hope to offer him something my parents couldn't (due to technology) and that is a glimps of what he was when he gets older. Oddly enough, i think i would photograph Scott Kelby or Jeff Cable. Only because i imaging that they have a TON of photos but not as many that includes them "in" the shots. I've discovered this lately with my trips to italy and family occasions... unless a mirror is in the background, you dont see me. The curse of the photographer i guess

What type of photography do you enjoy?

sharp photos! I dont have a particular enjoyment because i'm still trying to learn everything, which i know is impossible. Nature photography is amazing specially when you can capture something you weren't expecting. Wedding photography is special to that person because its their only means of looking back and remembering how joyful "hopefully" that day was. Underwater photography is just slick, a truly unknown world to most Nighttime photography i think is one of my fav, the camera can pick up light that the eye can't see

what inspired you to take up photography?

It manifested from my father and his father. According to my family it was always my grandfather who had to have a camera with him and when my dad was younger he was into it. However for some unknown reason, he just stopped (when i was still little). However he didn't stop soon enough, the photo bug got into my around middle school and when digital cameras started to hit the market when i was in high school the gadgetry of it sucked my right in. I can't imagine how older photographers lived before digital photography.

What do you think about when you pick up your camera ?

right now, "how can i pull off this shot?"

What do you hope to accomplish/learn from this group?

i'm hoping to look at something from a different angle. Right now, though my friends and internal family support my photography ambitions, they truly dont understand and i can't bound ideas or topics off of them. Sharing what i've learned to someone else just keeps the circle going
