My primary portfolio and MANY more images are available on my web site: AspexPhotography.com
My social networking sites. I've just created some of these recently, so help me out and please like/follow/etc them.
I'm an Event Organizer for the Arizona Photographers & Models (AZPSMS)
group in Tempe. We do group shoots each month that are designed to benefit all participants. We pay experienced models. I've been impressed by this group, which is why I joined the leadership.
Photography has been a passion of mine for many years. Quite a few years ago (back in the film days) I was very engaged in photography and seriously considering a career in commercial photography. I logged a fair amount of time doing studio work and was the resident expert on the large format camera in school. After an extended hiatus to pursue a more lucrative career I returned seriously to photography a couple of years ago and I'm loving it more than ever thanks to digital SLRs!
I am interested in a wide range of styles and actively working on improving and diversifying my portfolio with the intent to focus on paid work in the future.
Photography is fun for me but I also take it seriously and am very professional. I'm developing some concepts but I'm also very open to ideas or content models want to shoot. I'll consider just about any type of shoot as long as it is likely to produce images suitable for my portfolio or it pays (my rates are reasonably low at present).
I have my own photo studio where I do most of my shooting. Location shoots, particularly for interesting or unusual locales, is always an option.
