Yes, yes, I know ... it has been forever.
Just wanted to say I am still around, mostly lurking. Studies are going well but it is hectic most of the time.
I trust everyone got through 2013, hopefully 2014 will just be better.
I'm a painter/sketch artist, may I use your photo(s) as reference?
No, unfortunately not.
Can I use your images as stock?
No, there are no stock images in my gallery. The photographs are copyrighted and may not be used in any way without my written consent.
Why do you have so much copyright info on your photos?
To help reiterate the above two points.
How do you get such a clear/bright/fast/slow/ etc. shots?
Good equipment and knowledge on how to use the relevant equipment. Go forth and learn, you will be amazed by what you might find.
What type of equipment do you use?
Nikon camera's and lenses. My first camera was a gift and I have stuck with Nikon since. Currently shooting with D700 and D200 and D70 as back up.
Are you a professional photographer?
Yes and no. I do get paid for some of the photography I do, but I do not earn a living from it. It is a hobby, which got completely out of hand and I am fortunate to occasionally get paid for doing it.
