I have been involved in photography in one form or another since the early 70′s. Back in the day, we would spend hours in the darkroom up to the elbows in stinking chemicals, keeping the temperatures within +/- 1 degree and hoping the kids didnt barge through the door at exactly the wrong time and ruin a roll of 120 film just as it was being transferred on to the processing reels. I lost at least one model shoot that way and the reshoot wasnt quite the same.
It is incredibly humbling for me to meet all the wonderfull people that cross in front of my lens. They all have a story to tell in the way they look, talk, move, or carry themselves. This is what I love to do. I strive to allow everyone to tell their own story, in a single picture.
