First things first. Photography excites me. I have always been fascinated with portrait, sports, and street photography in particular. I find inspiration in the work of others that came before me, such as Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Platon. Sometimes you can look at one of their photos and just see pure emotion.
That is what I want to convey through my photography. I want someone to look at one of my portraits and not simply see a picture, but instead to see something deeper. However, I don't think I will ever reach a point where I am completely satisfied with my technique. As such, I am always learning. I read and watch everything I can get my hands on, whether it is about camera technique, different studio lighting set-ups, or post-production software.
Check out the galleries to see my evolution as a photographer, I hope you find it interesting. If you see me at a sporting event, flag me down if there is someone in particular you want me to focus on, I would be happy to oblige.
Check out the "About" page link above for a list of events I've covered in the past that may not be displayed here. If you want photos from them, just let me know.
E-mail me at JimShotMe@aol.com if there is an event you want me to cover. You never know, maybe I'll shoot you too.
