Think love is needed. No! Know love is needed.
My photography is often about another art forum a physical one like skating or aggressive inline skating. Other times it takes on another forum like portraits or people in candid situations . As of late my direction has taken a slightly different direction with more landscape involved and areas Unseen in city like areas , something like finding an oasis in the desert . The most delightful feeling is when I see and know I need to capture that place or person or situation and then manage to do it .
As a kid going on school field trips and even at home looking at the history channel and many other media. I have seen the work of many artist and all I wanted to do was create images the way they did . Let it be known i'm not a good painter. But much later in life I found out I have an eye for photography . At that point I decided to look and see what photography really is . Ever since I was 17. I knew how to capture images but not art.
When out with my camera it's more then just point and click . I can't say anyone will love what I shoot. But the same goes I can't say anyone will hate what's in front of them either. Saying my purposes is to inspire is not enough. I want to giveback to what feeds the inner desire to shoot. People hold many characteristics within them. I enjoy seeing which once I can draw out of them during a session.
When skating it's not about the area its about the skater and his trick or tech as it's called. As I progress as a photographer so shall my skate images, and my ability to capture difficult situations under the gun .
What started out as a hobby became something more . At one point shooting was a way to escape dangerous skating situations kinda of like hiding behind a friend but now can say for sure Photography was my best friend now it's my blood .
I am brand loyal I must be . I use a Nikon D50 . I have a 18-55mm and a 55-200mm Nikon lens, Nikon Speed Light SB-28DX. One tripod and yes I travel with a Tenba camera bag and a Lowepro . I also have a15” MacBookPro 5,4 Spyder 3 express , Sekonic L-358 , CS4 extended, picas for Brain Storming. When at party's I get an area set for me so I can shoot without interruptions . If you can't tell .Yes I love photography….
