I'm a photographer, mostly art and documentary!
I studied photography for a while in the late 90's and learned a lot about the technical side. Having worked as a life model since October 1991, this has helped me see the art in photography. I've gradually learned what interests me as subject matter. Sometimes this means working on long tern projects and ideas, other times it means single images that gradually come together as a theme.
Due to my work as a life model the human figure in all art is important to me. I use my own body in photographs, sometimes as straight forward art work, but also in very personal images that convey feelings i may have, or have had in the past. In these cases the nude figure often represents vulnerability, and perhaps the helplessness we can fell at times in our lives.

Current Residence: Derby, UK
Interests
Myself and a mate, Gary, decided it was time we had regular photo walks here in Derby. The first Saturday of each month was chosen, and the first walk was last Saturday, March 3rd.
We don't expect to ever get a huge number of people as Derby isn't a big city, but over time we hope to garner enough interest that we can build a better photography community. The photo walks are open to people of all ages and experience. The main thing is to have a keen interest in photography, and to want to join others in a social walk with cameras.
We thought it would be good to have a theme for each month, this could give people something to focus on, or they could of course ignore the theme if they wish. The theme for March was "Reflection". All of us this time decided to try using the theme, which was fun :-)

I very much hope that one day we can make it happen. If i had the money i'd pay your fare to come over. And if i ever make it over to the USA, and if they let me in.....then i'd be heading over to see you. It'd be wonderful to do a bit of traveling with you, either here, or there. I bet we'd talk at least as much as i do with Micah ;-)

It's okay. :) One of these days I'm going to ask my dad if we can take a family trip to London, or I could go visit you when I'm in college. I would, like, hide... then attack you from behind with a humongous glomp going "PT!!!!! AHH!!" :glomp:

If you made it to London you'd have to come up for a couple of days to see my beautiful countryside :D and if not, then i'd have to pop down to Londinium to see yooooooo :D

And if you attack me with a humongous glomp, i'll have to defend myself with a huge hug :tighthug:

As pure photo sites there's only really flickr, 500px, and Ipernity that i can think of at the moment. I'm using Google+. You can have a personal profile, but they do business pages now as well. I haven't really sussed out how they work though......G+ does seem to have a decent photography community, and some good pro photographers seem to get traffic to their websites and sales from it.

Some people use a blog as a central point for all their work and links to sites. I know some people are using them instead of a website. A blog can be quite good anyway. Quite a few people have one linked into a website, it can be a good way to communicate with people/customers.

Everything always takes a lot of work, and takes time to bring about any results. I don't seem to have quite got it right yet...

I struggle with the communication side of it all, but sometimes it's needed....
