Okay everyone. I know I've been away for quite some time. But I'm back, ready to shoot and ready to BLOG! My last entry talked about the The Future... And The Future is here. I've been doing quite a bit of shooting lately some sports, some editorial and some portraiture. All in all I've been having a blast. If I could shoot sports all day every day, I would. Since that isn't the case, I'm going to shift my focus to some Editorial work. There' s quite a bit to shoot in the area and I'm going to share my findings with everyone. So stay tuned and get ready to see what I've been up to and what I have on my agenda. Thanks for stopping by!
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.
