Do you consider yourself Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced?

I am a hard working professional action sports photographer. I would say my studio skills are intermediate.

What do you hope to gain from this group?

Though I've done some commercial fashion/glamour photography as gigs presented themselves. I am looking to expand my business into commercial fashion/glamour side of photography, and would like to gain more experience working with models and various complex lighting schemes, both in and out of the studio. I'd also like to network with other professionals, and learn the ins-and-outs of this side of the industry.

What genre are you focusing on? (ie. Glamour, Fashion, Commercial, Artistic, etc.)

I'd like to focus on expanding my skills and experience in commercial/glamour/fashion studio photography.

Link to your work. (ie. website, MM, deviant art, etc.)
