ttle room for free and creative expression. I am looking for a creative outlet and photography has risen to fill the decades long gap.
I'm hoping to gain studio experience and make some connections. It would be great to meet some new friends in the process. I love being part of a creative process working with other creative spirits.
Do others have more experience with studio photography? Absolutely. But what I lack in experience, I more than make up for in enthusiasm. I am delighted to work with anyone, any time and just about any place within reason. All ideas will be accommodated with passion, tenacity and care.
A Little More About Me:
I'm gregarious but a little shy. Easy to work with. Totally unpretentious and I appreciate the same in others. I was recently described as "The Dude of the photography world." Yes, it's a Big Lebowski reference and oddly enough, it's probably an apt caricature.
I love little British cars (I have a '60 Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite that commands most of my attention). Though I don't have a bike now, I spent many years seeing the world from the seat of a '67 Triumph. Classic motorcycles and old school bikers are in the blood.
I also enjoy the sea - I love to sail and someday want to live aboard my own rig.
I've been a musician all my life and play all sorts of odd instruments ranging from the Hurdy Gurdy to the Anglo-Saxon Lyre (as well as guitar). I love all sorts of music ranging from Russian folk music to Jethro Tull to Screaming Trees to Iron Maiden to Black Sabbath to John Dowland and everything in between!
I'm married with two kids. Two cats, as well (both of which are adoptions).
I consider myself a film buff. I'm a huge fan of David Lynch, Ingmar Bergman, Werner Herzog, Nicolas Roeg, Martin Scorsese, and other great directors including, of course, Hitch.
