My beginnings to my current published works...
Posted By: codiac2600, 07-01-2010, 11:29 PM

Not sure how many people here still remember me as it's been pretty much forever and a day, but I had to stop by and thank everyone and let them know what I've been up to.

I started out shooting Pentax digital and was a member of this forum ages ago and even had a stint as a moderator removing and creating colorful arguments

This forum and all the amazing photographers on it was my inspiration to stop taking snapshots and to begin creating art and capturing more than just imagery that inspired me but also others. Today I currently run a successful studio shooting everything from weddings to professional model books and more recently fashion and editorial work.

I learned everything I know from the people here that critiqued my first images through my first year and a half as a photographer and I can't thank them all enough for their diligence and eye for detail, plus all the kind words I received from time to time.

I still own a Pentax camera or two and use them to this day even though most of my work is done on other systems I know the value and amazing image quality that is produced by the camera system we love.

Thank you everyone and hopefully when life frees up I'll be able to contribute more to this forum again as I know some people must miss my crazy antics and charm

As a special surprise I'm going to present some recent works that were published as well as my very first fashion editorial. I've always loved photographing models and held onto the shoelaces of another pentaxian, Ben Kanarek, and told myself one day I would have my own fashion editorial. This week the recent issue of Northwest Quarterly contain 4 images shot and processed by myself with the help of Frank Szarban, a partner in our booming studio.

The first three images below are ones printed full page in the magazine the others are works used for advertising for the company via their website and other marketing avenues.

Thank you all so much for everything and especially those that helped me so much along the way!

Congratulations Chris on achieving your aspirations ! Some really tasty shots there. The last two remind me of a 'paparazzi' shoot my daughter did in HK whilst we were all visiting (she is based in London).

Thank you! Does your daughter have a web gallery or photo site? I'd love to see!
