I'm blogging this week about myself, because I want you to know me. Also, because my girlfriend/second shooter/assistant/amazing best friend is shooting the wedding with me this weekend in Dallas, TX and we thought we'd get out and do some "For Fun" shots. Might I say I'm becoming quite a fan of how she sees things.
But anyway, back to the message at hand. I wanted to tell you a little about myself in way that a "BIO" or "About ME" section couldn't do; I wanted to show you (along with a little narrative).
So what exactly are you getting yourself into? Well, great question! I love coffee, sports, dogs, talking, shopping, giving advice, making dumb faces, smiling, sleeping, early morning sunrises, reading, Harry Potter, J. Crew, a wonderful pair of jeans, and house shoes. There's so much more to me than those things, but that should get you started.
I prefer wrist straps over neck straps to my camera. I love shooting wide open (shallow depth of field). And I indeed, love the color red.
Apparently I take my work very seriously. But I'm also not afraid to make a ridiculously retarded face at you either.
I think the world is a better place when everyone is having a great time. I want people to laugh, to enjoy photography, to enjoy me as a photographer, and more importantly as a person. I want you to have a great time when we shoot, when we meet before we shoot, when we talk about meeting and shooting! As Buddy the elf once said, Smiling is my favorite!
So this is what I look like when I'm in front of you. What do YOU look like in front of me? Why not take a chance and find out! I think you'll be ecstatic with the results.
