Florida mostly, but I am a bit addicted to traveling the world; budget permitting.
WEDDINGS, but I love MANY genres – I was trained originally as an underwater cinematographer and lately I have been having fun with my go pro HD – it's an underwater camera that is mounted to my surfboard. Luv it!
Also I have been having fun with off camera flash/dramatic lighting. I am loving the RadioPopper system.
My Dad is an attorney, but he also had a serious photography addiction and I grew up with a sweet darkroom in our house.
How hasn't Zenfolio help my business is the real question. I used to cringe if clients had to see the online gallery for their photos as a first impression. The fact is (back in the day) they were sooooo lo-res (I think because the companies were worried about people stealing the images) that they looked awful. We even posted a disclaimer stating the images looked better than they appeared. It was awful. Zenfolio's galleries are opposite of that, they are awesome. I sell more and they make me proud. Plus, they are easy in every sense of the word.
Again, duh? NIKON! I hope they are reading this, because seriously Nikon has been the backbone of my entire career.
Not to be difficult, but the most honest answer I can give is swirl.
I am classically trained as a cinematographer. That is what I went to school for, but that being said, self-taught people constantly blow me away. Plus, I am continuously reaching out to learn more every day. It is refreshing to see each photographer's unique perspectives. I do think eventually we must all study the basics and also constantly strive to continue our education to keep it fresh.
Embrace your craft by investing your resources in education. Annual conventions like PPA and WPPI are over flowing with knowledge. If you can't go to the national conventions, then look for regional learning platforms like AfterDark Education or the association sponsored road shows which are more budget friendly. Oh, and spend your money and time wisely!
It was a photo of an alligator for Florida wildlife magazine.
I like David LaChapelle, Fashion photography magazines, cinema and renaissance art.
I think it is smart and a necessity, but I am thankful that I am not the person who has to keep it up in our business.
Not to offend anyone, hands down DOG ONLY. Big ups to my dog Zeke.
