Photographer in Phoenix, Arizona
In any case, I am adept at all areas of photography, have worked for four different studios in the valley, have owned my own Wedding and Portrait Photography business here in town in the '90's. I have shot over 300 weddings, have been published in periodicals and newspapers, and I have an entire portable studio kit that I can set up nearly anywhere within a half hour. I have recently won a photo contest sponsored by PBS (in over 50 years of shooting professionally on and off between photography and social services, I never bothered to actually enter a photo contest, but then the first one I finally did enter I win it!). I have not been working full time for the last few years, as the workload gets to be too much, so I am looking for freelance work that I can pick and choose when and for how long I work in a given week or month. Having assignments that I have some flexibility with in terms of scheduling is important to me. I have extensive experience with HDR, use Photomatix and Aurora, and can generate HDR's that are either artistic and painterly, or on the other hand I can make them very naturalistic and not obviously HDR's. I have shot numerous national conventions for associations and corporations across the country, so I know how to cover an event and convey the story line of the event sorely with the order and content of my photos, before any copy is added.
