What is your passion in photography? Any specialties or favorite subject?

I've been an avid hobbyist photographer of sports and other events for the last decade. Those subjects, firstly, because I've long enjoyed playing and watching sports. Secondly, I enjoy capturing a set of images that gives a good characterization of an event. I like doing that for events, as opposed to other types of photography, such as nature or still life. Nothing against those, I just gravitate toward action/events because the time limitation adds a challenge and mystery that I like. While there are pros who cover the Fort Collins Foxes (summer, college-level baseball, June & July), I've done saturation volunteer photography of it. The team GM gives me on-field access. I plan to start a similar thing with local Roller Derby in 2013-14.

What level of photographer do you consider yourself (amateur, hobbyist, freelance, serious, professional, camera collector, semi-pro, shutterbug, etc.)?

Avid amateur. I want to hang with like-minded pros & hobbyists. I did that a lot when I was heavily into juggling, and should have sought it out years ago.

What type of events do you want to participate in with NoCo Pro Photo?

Go on photo safaris together. Critique/advice. Sharing/learning techniques of photography and, in case I can some day do this professionally, the business aspect. Surely more, but the main points for now.

What equipment do you use?

Canon 7D with kit 28-135. [masked] IS USM. [masked], 2.8 L IS II USM Manfroto unipod & tripod.

What is your website, if you have one?

No answer yet


I've been an avid hobbyist photographer of sports and other events for the last decade. I want to take it from being a solo activity to meeting local photographers. Doing so with a juggling club back in the 70's made that far more interesting.
