Portrait photographer from Seattle


I joined PF in 2010 and after 5 years of shooting I'm finally posting something. Wooo!

I started shooting in 2010. A K-x for the first two years, upgraded to a K-5 and moved onto Canon for a while... worst idea ever. I missed the magic of the K-5 the whole time I was shooting on Canon. So I picked up a hardly used K-3 and Sigma 17-70 2.8 for next to nothing and got my hands on the 31 and 77 finally. Its been about 2 weeks and a lot of photos of my cat. I still have a bunch of lenses from my LBA with the K-x - mostly junk thrift store lenses that I love.

I run a photo studio focuses mainly on portrait and some product work. Hope you like some of the photos that I will share as I get reacclimated. Here's one of the first photos I took with the K-3 and Sigma 17-70 2.8

Love soft sidelight for portraits like this. Nice pic, better with Pentax-enjoy. That Sigma is great for this too.

Welcome formally (at last), I guess in your case... it pays to not rush into things.
