I am an artist (painter, sculptor) who is delving more and more into photography.
Once upon a time, in my younger days as a painting purist, I thought of photography as "cheating," but as I explored the possibilities of what photography is all about (and have seen the amazing work generated by other talented photographers) all those snobbish preconceptions have long since been smashed. I have fully embraced the medium, and am looking to create a strong selection of images to add to my portfolio.
Not that I have stopped painting by any means! In fact, I have several projects planned at the moment...as soon as I have some time for myself (I also play in a band that tours pretty heavily, which unfortunately eats up a lot of my non-dayjob time).
