I love doing both traditional and illustrative portraits - studio and on location. Time permits me to only do a limited about of event photography. I love shooting landscapes (for more fun than profit... but hopefully changing that detail). I also teach both photography (lighting/composition) and photoshop 'for the portrait and fine art photographer. Night time... flashlight... you name it, if we can light it we can capture it!
Not BIG on equipment... I make what I have work quite well! That being said, I use a Canon 20D and carry a Rebel XSi for back-up. Lenses: most used is a Canon[masked]mm. I also use a Tamron[masked] f/2.8 Studio Lighting: White Lightnings with Larson Soft Boxes (3x4 & 4x6) Tripod: heavy but the easiest in the world to use ... Bogen/Manfrotto 3051 (automatic!) Printer: Epson 9600 using pigmented inks Paper: "Hahnemuhle" Photo Rag Satin, German Etching and Daguerre Canvas Editing and Enhancement: Adobe Lightroom2 and Photoshop CS3 Video Projector for sales Matte cutter and vacuum press for mounting/framing Favorite Plug-ins: LucisArt, Nik (Color Efex Pro3, Viveza2, Silver Efex Pro), OnOne PhotoFrame4.5
Professional and still learning. I owned my first studio in Toledo, Ohio[masked] I relocated and owned a studio in Davis, CA from[masked] I'm still settling into Glen Ellen with my loft studio above the Jack London Saloon 2009-currently
I LOVE photography... including the switch from film to digital. Photography has opened many new doors including my portrait/fine art studio, where I print up to 44"x90", above the historic Jack London Saloon in Glen Ellen. Come and visit.
A great bunch of fun loving photographers!
