Relative to downtown Cincinnati, where do you live? North, South, East or West?

West side of town (Delhi)

What is your level of photography experience?What's a camera, Student, Novice, Amateur, Advanced Amateur, Professional, I invented the camera

Advanced Amature to Professional since I have sold photos I have taken.

What are your areas of photography interest?a) Snapshots, b) Landscapes, c) Cityscapes, d) People,e) Animals, f) Sports, g) Macro, h) Architectual, i) Travel, j) Web Page

Events, Landscape, Architecture, and Travel. More people should consider hiring a photographer for their events. To capture people engaged in conversation or activities at an event .. and later be told of a personal sense of attachment to the moment being photographed is truly rewarding. Landscapes are not something that are easily captured. Twilight (sunset and sunrise) photos are perhaps the most rewarding and can produce some vividly colorful images. It takes some dedication and perseverance to get up early or stay out late do it alone because no one else on vacation with you cares to get up so early. But the sense of accomplishment when you get that one photo that just stands out is Oh So Worth It. I often look for perspective photos and take images that are from a different view point. This often means laying on the ground or being inside of something looking out or even climbing to a higher vantage point to capture a different POV. Travel. 400 pics a day says it all.

What type of equipment do you use? a) 35mm, b) View Camera, c) Digital, d) Point & Shoot, e) One Time Use

F5, D90, D800, Samsung NoteII smartphone 8mb Camera.

Do you have abilities or techniques and knowledge that you are willing to share with this group?

The more I know the less I know. Patience and perseverance. Also take the time to frame and compose each photo so that every photo is a good one (It does not happen that way but it is a goal) and that multiple shots are for the subjects benefit and not yours.


I got my first camera (Nikon F2 Photomic) when I was in Jr. High. I have been a photographer ever since. My occupation is owner of TruBlue Cincinnati : Total House Care.
