Just a few of the photographers / artists or models I admire ... some I admire for the content/model/subject and others for the technique or skill of the photographer , and some just because! ... feel free to look through and try to guess why each one is there!

I HAVE ADDITIONAL PHOTO'S IN THE FOLDERS IN MY GALLERY ..>.. YOU WONT SEE THEM UNLESS YOU OPEN THE FOLDERS
I was given a 3 month premium membership  today... I  am amazed that there are still people like Pipaspases..... thank you so much..... I really had forgotten how annoying the ad's are in dA...... Thanks Pipaspases, I truly appreciate it

PS I am still dealing with 16 units of classes this semester, and  not putting up much work or doing ANY editing..... come summer, I will  learn a bit about Photoshop (CS6) and  try to improve the quality of the previous posts as well as improve the basic quality of what I shoot as well.  Any critiques of past work and especially more current work is appreciated
AND... I just gave away my 6000th llama.... and recently passed 9000 pageviews

About 3 years ago I bought a Nikon D40 and for the next 2 1/2 years I used it as a point and shoot camera. Then I decided to learn how to make the camera work for me. Traded the kit lens for a circular polarizing filter, got an 18-105mm lens and started using the manual settings. I hope someday to work a bit with a Pro and learn the ART & craft of shooting photos.

Recently I bought a Nikon D90 so I have a whole new camera (with lots of new buttons that help screwing up a good shot) to figure out. If you are in Las Vegas and have the time and patience to teach this old dog a few D90 tricks, hit me up anytime!
Please browse my gallery AND COMMENT! Comments and critiques are how I will grow as a photographer, and the critical ones are the most nesessary. If all I want are complaiments, I will buy beers for the bums at the local bar! Thanks folks.
