Introduce yourself

Post by Duck »

Hi, my name is Charles Unitas but friends call me Duck. I am one of the administrators here on photoMENTORIS. I am a retired tattoo artist of 24 years with an even older background in graphic design and commercial art. Currently I have my own commercial photography studio where I specialize in product photography. I also run a photography meetup group and teach photography through local meetups and camera clubs. On the side I enjoy off roading in my Jeep, though it's getting less and less as I get older :(

My favorite quote is in my signature and I live by that philosophy. I am looking to learn video editing so I can create educational content to share knowledge on YouTube.

Now it's your turn. Introduce yourself so others in the community can learn a little about you.

Hello everyone! Name is Bryan! I’ve been a photographer for roughly 7 years so far and conintue to learn new things every day! I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a degree in social work but that didn’t last very long haha. I followed my passion with photography and have been involved in freelance work for the past 3 years as well as events, portraits, macro work, and fine art.

I currently switched from Canon to Sony and so far, I do not regret my decision. As for work, I currently work at a Best Buy in Connecticut selling Canon cameras as there canon expert. If you guys have any questions or would like to stop by to check out our inventory, please do not hesitate to ask! Also if you’d like to see more of my work you may do so at bryandestinphotography.squarespace.com.

I love collaborating with others so if you have a project in mind or have any questions about photography in general, I also teach a beginners course so please let me know. I’m all ears! =) see you all in the forums!

Hello everyone! Name is Bryan! [...]
Hey Bryan, glad to see you here. Feel free to read through some of the posts that strike your interest. We have two major sections for posting images; one for just showcasing your work so others can see what you're up to and the other is for receiving critique in order to improve your skills.

I suggest reading through the User's Guide under the Quick Links to get a feel for how the forum works.

Looking forward to seeing what you have to offer.

Welcome to pM, from a fellow social worker who’s lots older than you and didn’t (re)discover photography until a decade ago, 5 years before I retired.

Please share some of your own pictures to discuss here, and give us feedback on what we post. We would love to have you Involved in our little community!

Hello photographers. My name is Rich and I am avid photographer living in Norwalk, CT. I have been shooting for over 35 years as an amateur photographer/ semi professional. I also organize another meetup to help share knowledge and photographic skills. I shoot a lot of animals, dogs, cats and horses. We own 10 horses and I am the administrator of an animal hospital which give me lots of opportunity. I have been a Canon shooter for about 15 years and I also just built a pro Olympus kit for travel. I look forward to sharing and learning from everyone.

Have a great day

RCF2

Welcome Rich! Jump right in and share some of your animal images with us! I'm an Olympus shooter so I'll be especially interested in how you use your Oly kit.
