|Self portrait of a self portrait|
|These are the manipulations of my stock done by others.|
Two selves divided - the head and the heart. A constant battle for supremacy. A conflict of who you should be and who you want be. What you need to do and what you want to do. What your head knows is right, your heart feels is wrong. It never gets easier fighting the demands of societies standards when you're a dreamer, an artist, a lost soul faking who you truly are because logic pulled you down a path out of necessity instead of the path that feeds your soul. How many people will you be when the head and the heart constantly disagree?
I'm hardly a professional and I'm completely self taught. I have a passion for photography and digital art. I take all my photos and they are all self portraits. i find it challenging to use the same person over and over again, trying to create a different emotion and look with each image. I always wanted to be a model or actress so I suppose this is my half assed way of fulfilling that dream.
I'm a very active person and enjoy a variety of "extreme" sports like rock climbing, snowboarding, skating of all varieties. I prefer living on the edge than safely in the background. I recently lost my job so I'm taking advantage of every moment, learning as much as I can in the time I was given.
I adore music, playing, creating and listening. I have a rather eclectic taste in what I like but usually I go for the bands with depth, I love hearing a variety of instruments in a song, especially the less common ones ie: banjos, violins, cowbells I'm hardly a musician myself but am trying to teach myself the guitar and once I sell some stuff I'm getting a drum set.

Personal Quote: Not all who wander are lost
My rules are minimal.
*Nothing perverted or sexual. I don't want to come across an image of mine manipulated to display something brutally offensive.
*Images may be used on and off DA, for contests prints pretty much wherever and however you want. Just please credit and always send me a link. The best part about stock is seeing what others create with it.
*Most all my images can be used for stock unless its a manipulation with another persons art in it.
*You may use my stock in work you're trying to sell on or off line or for prints. You must manipulate it in some way to be able to do this. If you can credit me great, if not thats fine. Be fair and don't claim any of my stock as your own.
*Sometimes I forget to change the creative commons license before I submit, doesn't matter still fair game to use as you please.
I take requests so if there is something particular you're looking for I'll try and create it. Timeline is usually within a week, however it depends on the image and what I have going on at the time. Winter is crazy for me because I snowboard - a lot.
I have a limited supply of costumes so donations are always welcome. I'm not working right now so funds are limited.
Most of my images are self portraits, I use a tripod and remote. Sometimes they come out grainy or blurred slightly when viewed close up, this happens most often with the action shots outside because I shoot with a high shutter speed and high ISO. I use noise ninja to help with this but close still doesn't always look as clear as it does far away, just like monet
If you have any questions just email.
Thanks you for looking and as always keep on creating!
|I would like to put together a simple steampunk costume. I should be able to create a basic version for around $50. If you enjoy my work and would like to make a donation towards this you may. Any little bit helps. Thanks for your support.|
