It's been almost one year exactly since I joined the GG community. As I was browsing the internet to find a friend of mine who had recently been submitted to Playboy's Sexy Girl Next Door category, I stumbled across GG. I lurked for 2 weeks before finally asking questions about the "digital technology" world that has become so prevalant over the last few years. Allen Prather encouraged me to purchase a nice starter kit AND to find a "mentor" in Houston... which I did. The next day I purchased a Digital Rebel kit with a few extras and Bob Warren was gracious enough to take me under his wing and teach me the rules and technical side of photography. I worked with my first model in January of 05 and have shot more than 100 since as well as attending 2 SS workshops.

So 2005 was a great learning experience for me and I have grown to love this GG community and many here have helped me improve on my skills. I am no where CLOSE to where I want to be skill wise, but I certainly have seen improvement in my work and much of that credit goes to members here who have critiqued, offered advice and answered the numerous PM's asking "how'd you do that??" or "WHY did you do that?"...

I look forward to learning and developing further and am thankful we live in a country that allows us this type of forum...

My FIRST three images ever posted on GG...






My first REAL model shoot...the LOVELY Jessica Hays..



And some of my more recent work...












Thanks for all who have helped and I look forward to what lies ahead...

Very nice Bobby,
Lovely images, your post kind of helped me put some things into perspective.
I just joined GG about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks ago, and I probably spend more time than I should reading everything. There's so much info here it's hard to absorb it all. This is a new carreer start for me, so it's good to see someone have a positive experience from these forums and the networking that goes on. I plan on being at the South Padre shoot to meet some of the other folks here and hopefully gain some much needed knowledge.

Happy Anniversary Bobby!

Thanks for the story....very similar time frame here (I just lurked for a lot longer).

Here's hoping we learn as much in '06 as we did in '05 <grin>
