I'm back in the swing of things and I'm ready to shoot. I want to capture people in their innocence or perhaps doing what they do. Whatever that may be. I'll be embarking on a personal endeavor over the course of the next month or so that is of particular interest to me. That being people! I want to shoot the everyday Joe in the midst of their daily routine, doing what they do. More than likely I'll be shooting them in their natural surroundings but some may very well be in the studio. I'll let them decide. I'm looking forward to a fun project that's both fun, energizing and interesting. It'll be curious as to where this is going to lead. I'll keep you'll posted on my progress. Give me a shout out if you have any questions or suggestions. I want this endeavor to be fun light and interactive. Talk to you soon...
Hey everyone! I'm Dirk Weaver, a freelance photographer based out of Charlotte, NC. I am using this blog to get my thoughts, opinions, and ideas on the web.
I started making images in 2004 when I bought my first digital camera, a Nikon D70. I didn't know much about photography nor did I know very many photographers, but I was determined to make it work and pursue Photojournalism as career and flee the cubicle jungle for good. I took a few classes, read several websites and made a lot of mistakes early on, which I am truly grateful for.
My blog will be chronicle of my thoughts, ideas, perspectives and personal experiences, both good and bad, as they pertain to photography and the world around us. I hope that you find my writings both helpful as well as entertaining and that they help you avoid some of the challenges that I had early on.
A sincere Thank You goes out to the many people I have met along the way, both photographers and other wise. All of you have helped in many ways in my aspirations to make photography a career. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, comments or criticisms.
