Everytime I come to GG, I see images that I would LOVE to create. You gentlemen and ladies are a talented group of folks who never fail to inspire and challenge me to improve my craft, to reach up a bit higher, to think outside of my box. But today I received the best validation of my work and confirmation that although I'm not a Great Photographer, I have been very successful.

A model traveling from Washington state to Georgia sent me an email. She said: "Mr. Selby, I saw your pictures on Angie Thomas's 0MP page and her comment about working with you. I will be in the Savannah area in two weeks, and if you are available I would love to do a shoot with you."

I don't live near Savannah, so I emailed her back, thanked her for her interest, and if she could make it to the Atlanta area, I'd love to work with her. Of course, I also had to see what Angie said about me. So I went to her 0MP page and read this:
[ QUOTE ]
When I was younger I had no confidence in myself and always questioned my outward appearance - but not anymore. I now realize that not only do I have enough confidence to become a model, but I am confident enough to know that I can make it big if I have the desire to. For this, I give all my love and appreciation to a man who gave me the opportunity to express who I really am; the one who gave me the constant assurance that I AM beautiful both inside and out; the one who treated me as his own and believed in me more than any other; my very first, and best photographer I know…Mr. Ed Selby (member ID#4329). Thank you, Ed.

[/ QUOTE ]

Angie was my "house model" until she moved to Seattle to be with her boyfriend. I was always happy to have her in front of my camera. My wife even said that Angie was one of her favorite of all of my models. She was very special to me. She opened herself up, explored aspects of her personality, and just *SHINED* when we shot together.

I may never get my pictures into a big slick magazine, or be a published author, or host awesome workshops, or be able to sell a calendar, but I know that I have been successful because of Angie.

You just can't do any better than that dude. You have good reason to brag. You and the others like you are the best reason to participate on this site. I've learned a lot more here than just photography.

To me, that is really what it's all about. It's not about making big bucks or getting tear sheets. It's about making people feel good and beautiful.

Insofar as I can judge, that was well-deserved thanks. You've always been the consumate professional in your behavior of others, both subjects and colleagues.
