Hello Steem! My name is Jeff, and I'm a professional photographer.

3년 전

Hi again!

I've been lurking steemit for quite sometime, and i've finally decided to join the community full force! I'm a husband, a father of 2, and work in commercial advertising photography. I've got lots of fun things to share with you all from my 9 years that i've been at it. Everything from Ferarri's , real horses, and 2 Chainz (at the same time) to a tickle fight with Jack Black, and hanging out with Dolly Parton. Work isn't always fun and games though. I do a lot of boring jobs, sometimes just to pay the bills. I hope to share with you guys images i've created. Answer any questions I can. Help in anyway, and post helpful tutorials to help you all make better images, even if it's just with you cellphone.


Photography started as a hobby. I tried to go to college, and quickly found it wasn't for me. I spent years beating my head against the wall, trying to figure out what my path was. I worked lots of jobs. Worked most aspect of construction, got fired from Starbucks(that's actually a good story...for another time). I even ended up working at a tanning salon, as a long haired hippy. One day I heard of a portfolio school named, Creative Circus. I ended up giving it a whirl, as a last ditch effort to stake some kind of claim on a professional path. IT WORKED! I dove in head first and began the work. Honing my skills, learning my craft, and started assisting established photographers to continue to build my skill set, and make money.

Enough about me right now, and enough about my career. Let's talk about my two boys and their photography. They see cameras all the time. I usually leave one laying around the house for them to play with. They like to take pictures of each other, mama, and the dog. Whenever I scan the memory cards, there's usually thousands of pictures. Mostly out of focus, mostly of the floor, and generally unrecognizable subject matter. The other day i scanned the memory card, and found a few gems. You can see them below.

And here are a few more I like

And finally this one. It reminds me of the times before we met our children, and we only got to see them through a sonogram.


I'm very much looking forward to being an active part of this community! Thanks for reading if you've gotten this far!

Hello & Cheers!! I'm a content detection and information bot. You are receiving this reply because a short link or links have been detected in your post/comment. The purpose of this message is to inform your readers and yourself about the use of and dangers of short links.

To the readers of the post: Short links are provided by url shortening services. The short links they provide can be useful in some cases. Generally their use is benign. But as with all useful tools there are dangers. Short links can be used to hide all sorts of things. Quite frequently they are used to hide referral links for instance. While not dangerous this can be deceptive. They can also be used to hide dangerous links such as links to phishing sites, sites loaded with malware, scam sites, etc. You should always be extremely cautious before clicking on one. If you don't know and trust the poster don't click. Even if you do you should still be cautious and wary of any site you are sent to. It's always better to visit the site directly and not through a short link.

To the author of the post: While short links may be useful on some sites they are not needed on steemit. You can use markdown to format your links such as this link to steemit. It's as simple as [steemit](https://steemit.com) Unlike short links this allows the reader to see where they are going by simply hovering over the link before they click on it.

This message was created by a bot. It is part of the ongoing fight against spam and phishing attacks on steemit. If you did not use short links in your post and feel you have received this message in error you can contact @fubar-bdhr on discord or @fubar.bdhr on steemit chat to report the issue.
