Howdy!

I'm a semi-pro freelance photographer in Miami, I shoot mostly fashion and beauty stuff but am still shoving my book under the nose of all who'll see in the hopes of building a client list.

I'm just starting my first marketing campaign, comprised mainly of a direct mail piece (to be updated every quarter, for now), a print portfolio - and a Web version as well - some cold calls soon to be made, and even a little blog.

I shoot with an obsolete dSLR (Canon D60), and a Mamiya M645 film body that will never (?) go out of style. Cool

I'm a photo assistant down in San Diego, CA. I've been at it for just over 5 years. I'm a pretty happy-go-lucky guy, so long as I'm getting paid on time. I love what I do, but the time to transition to shooting coming soon. I've been shooting subjects that are in some way, shape, or form, connected to my own life. Now I just have to figure out how to make it all commercially viable.

I'm also working with another assistant in the establishment of a proper rental house. If you've got a shoot happening in SoCal, I can certainly be of help.

Hiya,

Hello Everyone,

I'm a freelance photographer located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I specialize in yacht photography and have just returned back to Canada after spending 2 years in Australia chasing some of the pro sailing circuit. I hope to one day etch a mark in the yachting industry with my photography.

I look forward to learning as much as possible from the forum, as well as contribute where I can.

J.

Hi guys n gals.

I'm Mike. Originally from just south of London, UK. Spent the last 2 years in San Francisco and am now starting a commercial studio in Portland, Oregon with a great photographer friend of mine, Craig.

In the past I've shot weddings, music, motorsport...!

Our new studio is commercial advertising in nature. Great forum!

Cheers

Mike

Hey Johnny. Sorry the place is so slow these days. Jump into a few threads and maybe we'll get some discussion going on.

I've been shooting commercial and advertising in LA for about 20 years. I'm shooting mostly for apparel and accessories manufacturers now. I also run a couple of eStores and just started a new networking site to bring stock photographers and stock models together.

I'm looking forward to looking around here to see what all is up!

Hello, everyone.

Had to come over here, the PDN forums have been turned unusable. It's like going from using a Mac to using Windows 95, or maybe more like Windows 2.11. Glad to see we have an easy-to-use, lively and professional forum. Looking forward to trading useful information with all of you.

Cheers,

Tony

I don't know if it's lively... :-) I was about to shut this place down since it kinda died. I'll leave it up to see if people want to hang out.

Thought I'd join in on the intro page, too. Here is my "official" intro paragraph...

I am Richard R. Barron, the Chief Photographer at the Ada Evening News, a daily newspaper in Ada, Oklahoma, as well as Editor and Chief Photographer for Ada Magazine. I am the winner of nearly 100 awards, including the Oklahoma Press Association's Photographer of the Year (two times), the Associated Press Photography Sweepstakes award (two times), and the Thomson Newspapers North American Award of Excellence. My hobbies include nature photography, hiking, climbing, camping, flying, music, writing, and film-making. I take most of my vacations in the desert, which includes areas like the Colorado Plateau, where Abby and I got married, the Chihuahuan Desert, New Mexico, and the mountains of Colorado.

FWIW,

the new PDN format blows. I'd way rather hang here if professionals want to converse than at the sad new version of PDN. If we can all share here, let's do it.

Brooks, if you need $ to keep this going and professionals will really share info here, I'm among the first to be happy to contribute whether via paypal or whatever. The industry needs a place for professionals to hang.

It doesn't cost me anything to keep this up... I will be handing out moderator privileges to more people if it picks up though.

Hola a todos.

I'm a full time professional located here in sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico.

www.stevefitzpatrick.com

I enjoy having access to other professionals like myself for mutual moral and professional support.

Things seem to be getting harder and harder for us as the years go by, but it beats working behind a desk.

Wait... I AM behind a desk! And find myself here most of the time nowadays!!

Shocked

Saludos to all.

Hey y'all...I'm a regular over at Fred Miranda (as "shatterkiss") and another member gave me the heads-up that a lot of the less-content folks there were moving over here (thanks, Brent!).

I'm a portraitist and occasional fashion shooter, also supplementing my income with lots of video directing. I live in Brooklyn, NY, but work nationally.

Happy to be here and looking forward to seeing lots of familiar "faces"!

Another refugee from PDN. Registered a few years ago and had been back from time to time but couldn't remember my password and finally figured it today after trying a bunch of combinations. Hi Brooks, I used to be near you over in Northridge until I moved down to the south bay a year and a half ago. Glad you kept the forum open.

Just introducing myself. Right now I'm an assistant but feel the shooting world calling my name. I'd like to transition over the next year or so.

I shoot people. I have a website www.shanekislack.com. Some people call me "Shaniac". My PIN number is 6120 and my bank account routing number is 422569822.

Hello all, I'm another exile from the PDN forums. It's so cool to see so many people from that forum come over here. I've been lurking for years in the forums there and always counted on that community to educate me and offer great advice.

Thanks to Brooks for keeping this place running!
