I love all kinds of photography but my top two are portrait photography and travel photography. I want to travel the world and take photos of people. Yup, that is definitely me in a nutshell.
I have been a full time professional photographer for the past 12 years and am always interested in connecting with other professionals or people wanting to become professionals to talk shop and trade business ideas and advice. I am an artist at heart, but a perfectionist by nature. I love the art of photography and love to talk about it share it. I am always willing to share everything I know with beginners, so don't be afraid to ask me questions or for help. I consider myself to be friendly, easy going and approachable and as a bonus, I never talk about myself in third person.
So hard for me to pick here, because I am really looking forward to doing it all, but one of the primary reasons I created this group was because I didn't see a lot of other photography related meetup groups that did free events. So I think I am most looking forward to sitting down with some photographers over a couple of drinks on a regular basis and talking about our craft and passion. I want to talk shop, and I want to discuss art.
I don't know how I will die when it comes to be my turn, but I do know that I want to die with a camera in my hand. Photography is my passion and my profession. I love to teach, talk and share everything I know about my craft with like-minded people.
An amazing mix of people. Intelligent, cultured and diverse. Great conversationalists and great photographers and artists. I feel fortunate to get to spend time with them.
