What skills/talents do you bring to the group? (i.e. photographer, model, MUA, artist etc.)


What is your experience level in your given field? (very experienced, novice, hobbyist etc)

Experienced photographer; novice in this area of photography

Is there are specific style of photography you specialize in or would like to try?

I've mainly specialized in outdoor action photography in the past, although I've also done a few weddings and a bit of corporate event work, as well. The wedding and portrait fields are glutted with cheap shoot and burn hacks, and it's tough to distinguish oneself and justify a living wage when there are so many "cheap" photographers around. I'd like to find myself a more specialized niche, where I can really hone my skills and make a name for myself. The "darker" world of gothic, fetish, and noir photography seems like it would be fun to work in, and the specialization will help me to focus (so to speak) and grow as a photographer.


I'm an experienced photographer looking to expand my portfolio into new areas.
