I'm an amateur photographer who has been shooting since 1984. Most of my photography has been wildlife, nature, and landscape, but I've done some people photography all along. I've also done a bit of technical and scientific photography and imaging. In 2011, I had the opportunity to work with a guy who did quite a bit of model photography. While we've grown apart, he got me started, and I've enjoyed doing model photography since that time.
I like a wide variety of genres. I like the challenge of trying to capture the best shots in all kinds of circumstances. I like trying to create images that both my model and I will like. One of the greatest compliments that I received was when a model said that her mom really liked what we'd done together.
I pay models sometimes and do some TFP shooting. On a TFP basis, I'm usually happy to help a model with whatever he or she wants to create. Realistically, I'm not going to find any models through PurplePort, but I try to make a few contacts out there.
I worked as engineer for most of my adult life, but health problems have forced me into a disability retirement. I shoot when I'm physically able and can find a model who wants to shoot. Clearly, my perspective on the world does not fit that of the model photography community. I realize that I will always be a nobody in this community, and that will have to be okay. I will remain true to myself and to the truth. If I can make some good images along the way, that will be good enough for me.
