You can call me a self-taught amateur wanting to make the jump into wedding photography. Having studied the program offered by the New York Institute of Photography I have found there's no substitute for real-world work experience and learn the most when working hands on. Looking for a mentor, someone who is willing to take me under their wing and show me the ropes. My experience thus far includes a few baptisms, engagement photos, family portraits and a wedding. My equipment consists of a Canon Rebel XTi. Lenses include a Canon 18-55: 3.5-5.6, Canon 28-80: 3.5-5.6 and a Sigma70-300:4-5.6. I am located in Dana Point, Ca and looking to assist wedding photographers in order to gain more experience, learn about wedding photography and build my portfolio. You can count on me being on time and available evenings and weekends. Take a look at some of my work at www.shellieanne.com I am a hard worker, very personable, eager and professional. If you are interested and willing to work with a very determined but somewhat green assistant/second shooter, please contact me. I look forward to working with you!
