I have monitored this forum for some time, just recently officially joining. I spend a lot of time online since I'm shut in the office booking work all day and generally need a little online relief to keep from the insanity. I own a licensed talent agency in Texas, though formerly ran Model Management, an agency in North Hollywood, California. In the days of film, I shot commercial work. Today, I don't confuse representing talent and paid work in the same venue, so only shoot for the enjoyment (now 100% digital). In addition to the agency, our team works collectively to help in charity events, as well as in the promotion of new talent and photographers. I hope to drop in and out here from time to time and share and experience with and from the rest of you. Thanks!
