What is your name?
When did you begin listening to The Candid Frame?
Some time in 2007, but I've listened to every episode.
How long have you been shooting and what inspired your interest in photography?
I've been shooting with a dSLR since 2005, and with an interest in photography but point and shoot camera for about 14 years. To be honest I don't recall when my interest began, but it was catapulted by the purchase of my first dSLR after I had shot a bunch of film on a trip to Europe which cost me a fortune to develop a lot of horrible images! Ever since, I've shot as much as I could, learned as much as I could online and in classes, and listened to a variety of podcasts while driving around. I first heard of Ibarionex on The Focus Ring, I miss that podcast!
Do you have a preferred genre or specialty of photography? Why?
I definitely prefer portraiture. It's the connection with people that matters to me, conversations that happen that you wouldn't have expected to come up during the shoot, and the joy of seeing a happy client after they're presented with the proofs.Read More
