Hey TD--congrats! As I told you at HTL two years ago and at Cynthia's in Atlanta, your stuff rocks. Great to see good things happening to you--see what passion does to you?
What most photographers don't realize, it's a mix of things that make great photographers, more specifically, comprehension, creativity and communication.
1. Comprehension--understanding your equipment, knowing it, breathing it, living with it like a soldier with his M-16.
2. Creativity (Creative Eye)--some claim it can be taught, others claim it can't, but anyone can always create, so never stop trying. Some are lucky to be born with it, and you my friend are born with it.
3. Communication--knowing what to say, when to say, how to say, and where to say it. This includes building rapport with your subject as well as communicating to others via workshops, books, etc., and more important, communicating through your images.
Well my friend, you posses all three and do them well, combine that mix with dK, Chelsie and Jeff---well you should be taking the world by storm with your photography--and you will.
I've always said, I'm a fan of your work, great work and beyond that, you come up with some of the most "original" ideas, nothing cliche--the latter is what separates you from the milk. (now he's going to shoot something with milk, (grin))
Thanks for sharing, I wish you luck. I know your workshop will rock, and if I was in town I'd drop by, but I think I'm in Portland that weekend. Regardless, you along with dk should blow people's minds with what you both can do with as a team--and of course with Chelsie and Jeff helping, how can you go wrong?
Oh, I'm on the road right now in Sarasota visiting my old friend, Playboy model Tricia Wilds, so I'm on/off line, but saw this image and had to post--great work, wishing you all the best, rg sends!
