Hi everyone

I am a young photographer, just recently moved to the Bay Area. Went to art school on the east coast and am now attempting to make a living shooting. Just shot my first ad job a few weeks ago and am now working on my first marketing campaign, sending out cards and making calls. I saw this site mentioned over on PDN and thought I'd come over to learn from you guys with a little more experience.

Apologies to Brooks. I posted my intro in the wrong spot. I am a commercial shooter from North Carolina. Have been doing this for about 30 years. Working now on how to leverage the internet as a marketing tool. I'm a board member of ASMP-NC. Greetings.

Hey, thanks for moving it over here... I had to delete about twenty introductions from the main section the other day... It kinda gets clogged up. :-)

Welcome. Do you know Kent Smith? He's the only photographer in NC that I know. :-) I guess I should bug him about coming over here.

Saying hello from the SF Bay Area. What kind of Intro is needed here...? I take pictures and spend a lot of time at a computer. For sanity, I play pool. For Insanity, I try to get my two young kids, (6 & 9) to follow instructions.

Hi to you Brooks, and your growing clan. You mentioned "slow" in several replies. I think, like myself, a lot of people are stuck in no mans land right now trying to figure out which way to turn. Give folk a chance and I`am sure they will make the right move eventually.(I made it!).
I`am a Santa Barbara expatriate living in Oslo, and doing allright as an advertising photog. Hang in there, we need people like you Very Happy

SB. Can we hear all the people from SB?
Lived in Carp for 6 years.
Crushed a lot of hopes with my year end review at Brooks.

Not from SB, but as a Ventura State Beach Lifeguard many years ago, I used to work at Carpinteria a lot. :-) I don't know if guards from Ventura HQ still travel up to Carp to guard that beach though.

Yup "safest beach in CA", not sure if that still holds true these days. I used to love taking walks on it at 6:30am when it was totally deserted. Carp is still one of the last true coast towns that is, ahem, affordable.

Hello

I just found this site. I was over at PDN and found the link.

I'm a self-employed Carpenter / Photographer located along the coast about 20 miles north of Boston, MA . I have had a long time love for photography and have made a new commitment to it after taking some time away from it. I lost everything in a flood (raw sewerage) and no insurance! So starting over took some time. I purchased my new "film camera" (FM2n) right around the time that digital started to take off and the F6 came out. I still only shoot film. Right now I'm in the business plan stage so i'm mostly shooting for my own files. I know it's not going to easy but I feel it's something that I have to do

I look forward to being a member

Stephen

Super Forum Site. I saw 'others' had tanked (after I registered) so I followed a thread to 'here'.
I don't 'normally' register on forums, but this one looks good.
