General Photography Sevices
Please click on my sample photo above to get a better look at the kind of quality work I like to produce (more samples available on request).
I'm available for most types of photography (too many to list) - so if you need photos, just ask and I'll tell you if I am comfortable performing that work for you.
I don't use a "professional" camera (see camera description below). I believe quality images have more to do with the photographer than the gear they use. Please keep this in mind and don't be surprised when I arrive with a small "point-n-shoot" camera.
There is more work performed by the photographer than most people realize. Most people, understandably, simply show up with little prep on their side. The photographer may bring years of experience and the time involved may easily triple the time taken snapping the shutter.
I also perform image editing.
Got a shot that you'd like to fix/ clean up; adjust - or do something special with (digital frame, caption)? I may be able to help.
Training & Qualifications
I've been taking photos, off and on, for over 40 years.
I'm just an amateur and, just as with my other "jack of many" skills, I'm not a master photographer.
I used to shoot film with an SLR. I couldn't afford a lot of film or processing fees, so I made a habit of planning out my shots carefully.
I moved to digital photography a little over 10 years ago and shortly after began shooting with a Dslr.
I've been downsizing my life in retirement and sold all my Dslr gear and now shoot with a simple point-n-shoot - an Olympus XZ-2.
Don't be mislead by the fact that the XZ-2 is not a Dslr.
The sensor is small (1.7 cmos; 12Mp), but the glass is very good. This is actually quite a sophisticated piece of equipment. Granted, a Dslr has more capabilities. But, photography is really very simple - in that, I think it comes down to good glass and adequate light. Still, the most important component in photography - is the photographer. You can have the finest camera and lens in the world - and terrible photos. Or, you can have a primitive shoe-box pinhole camera - and beautiful images. Its often less about the tool and more about how it is used.
I shoot raw w/ jpg and post process in DarkTable and GIMP. I tend to spend a lot of time in post-processing (the "digital darkroom"), because I like to squeeze as much value as I can from each shot.
I also like to experiment with creative expressions of my photos (B&W; pencil and cartoon effects and much much more; the creative possibilities are basically limitless).
Availability & Preferences
I'm not a fan of driving in metro Denver. I prefer outdoor, public venues close to home - such as parks or any public venue with a nice back-drop and a decent lighting factor (Thornton/Northglenn).
In the past, I have scouted shoot locations on the 16th Street Mall, so I'd be open to that as well.
In terms of schedule- I'm retired and fairly flexible.
