I'm Laszlo Bencze. (Never could see the point of hiding my real name in an email moniker.)

I do commercial photography around the world for whoever will send me. Recently that has been mostly mining and pharmaceutical companies. I also do high end weddings around the country. I always spend a minimum of two days taking pictures for weddings. More opportunity for great moments.

I've migrated over from the PDN forum which appears to have been abandoned by all users.

Laszlo,

Did you switch of the lights when you left PDN, like you promised?
Now lock the door behind you and throw away the key.

Greetings first and foremost to the Big Kahuna and one of my "unofficial mentor" here in LA, Mr. Brooks Ayola. Thank you for creating this online medium for aspirant folks like myself from lurking and decide to join and contribute photographic or retouching knowledge.

Now the proper introduction: My name is Ron and although I pursued photography autodidactically during summer 2006, it wasn't until post 19th May 2007 relocation of Los Angeles that I can be proud to affix "Professional Photographer" to my name. During this first year, I am proud to have accomplished the following:

Clients: Vilain GarÁon (France), Vizeau (Miami, FL, US), City Models SF, FORD Models SF, Bleu Model Management, Click Models LA, LA Models, Next Models LA, NTA Life Models, VUE Model Management, Visions LA, Next Models Miami, RED Models NYC, Renegade Models NYC, DNA (Australia), VERTU (France), AX National (Australia), BelloMag.com (France), Vanity (Spain), reFRESH (UK), blu (Germany), BeautifulMag.eu (France), M-MENSUEL (France), Horizon Barcelona (Spain).

I also regularly participate on the ModelMayhem.com forums on retouching--in the area of pixel level dodging and and burning since I shoot men's fashion and beauty.

My ultimate goal is the genre of men's fashion and beauty.

Check out my website: http://www.ronaldntan.com/. If you have a certain question on how I retouched something, please feel free to ask. I am not afraid to share technique. I feel when I help others, I am helping myself mature and develop.

Best in health,

ronald n. tan | photographer

Hi you all,

This will be my new home after months missing PDN forum.

A little introduction: photographer all my life, I presently live in quiet and historical Saltillo, in Mexico, two blocks from the Cathedral. Architecture keeps me busy shooting all over Mexico, after being into commercial, portrait and general photography for many years.

It's nice to know Lazlo and other great guys from PDN are already here.

Hi,

I found this forum through another. I got tired of amateurs telling a professional how to run his business on other forums. So I came here.

SPW,

Can you at least give us a real first name, so we know what to call you?
We already have a TWSP as well, so things could get confusing.
Just as a courtesy to your pro colleagues.

And we also have rvds, jcw, jbd, jcnlv.......etc.etc.

Come on, guys and gals, if you want your peers to take you seriously, let's get al least a bit more personal here. Cool

My name's Rhys and I run....

SagePhotoWorld (photography in COlumbia SC)
SagePCWorld (Computer repair in Columbia SC)
SageWorld.Org (on hiatus - a computer software/security site)
SageWorld.co.uk (a personal site)

I'm trying to get my professional photography business off the ground at the moment. It's a battle though.

Hi All,

I found this site by advice from PDN. I'm hoping to find a diverse group of photographers and discuss our passion - photography!

Although there is no rule here as to what you use as a user name, it is much nicer to see a real name at least in signatures.

I hope this isn't the type of place where you feel the need to be anonymous.

Thank you Brooks for your vote of support.
I never did understand the need for anonimous user names, maybe that's because I don't have anything to hide.

And Rhys....I do remember you from PDN.
There were some heated discussions back in those days, but let's forget about that and start anew. Fresh and friendly Smile
