I've been taking photos before I started elementary school - my uncle owned a portrait studio. I learned to love photos from a young age, and I learned to take them as I got older.
I would love to take Jay Maisel's workshop someday. I've noticed over the years that it's easy to find a critic of your photos, but it's very rare to find a person who can see the photo before taking it. Listening to Jay's talks and hearing from people who've taken his class, I think it would be an amazing experience. Plus, it's always fun to shoot photos in NYC.
I use Canon SLRs primarily because it's a habit - I've just gotten used to it. I really enjoy using strobes and speedlights, especially outdoors with gels.
I am primarily a studio portrait photographer. For personal work, I enjoy shooting street portraits and fashion.
