I am an amateur photog willing to take any criticism or tips that you, the viewer are willing to give. Experience is a wonderful teacher, but sometimes you need the opinions of others to further your craft.

Here is me as a photographer: I shoot for myself. If others want to come along for the journey, I welcome you, but I shoot to get images that are stuck in my head out. All of us imagine a scene before we shoot it, sometimes I will see an object, place it in a scene, and finally shoot it months later because that scene never leaves my mind. Sometime it fulfills my vision and sometimes it does not.
