    Anything that catches my eye as a beautiful photo. Whether it's a sunset over the mountains, birds bathing in a puddle, a happy bride, kids playing etc.

    Photographs for the sake of photographs. While I apply my own low-key theme to many photos I will do so with any subject.

    My mood changes, so does my photographic tastes. I think the most consistent favorite subjects are animals both domestic and wild, and live performances. When the studio is up and running I will get into some other fields again and my tastes might change or be modified somewhat. Basically I shoot whatever is fun and interesting, nothing cast in stone.

    My favorite is portraits. I do alot more then just portraits but I love catching expressions on peoples faces and I also like having the time to prepare for the shot so thats another reason too!
     
  5. I like street photography, and variations on photojournalistic story-telling. I would be very interested in combat photography, but I can't get there by subway... so I make do with what's on the other side of town.

    journalism/street stuff as that seems the most challenging. I like tough situations which test me both photographically, mentally and physically. In my youth I was a war correspondent.

    I enjoy editorial work more then anything. For instance. This week I will be shooting a working ranch. The story is "Historic Ranch Tours" that will be offered during this years Fall Arts Festival. Then it is on to "Behind the Scenes" artist studio tours. I am very proud and slightly nervous. It is easy to blow the shots.

    I Like to shoot urban/street scenes, urban architectural abstracts and landscape. Although I find it tough to keep my self interested in landscape so I prefer urban environments.

    For many years, I loved fine art/landscape (urban or rural) type stuff but since moving to the north east about 8 years ago I've developed a love for street photography. Daily travels to New York City can easily spark such an interest.

    Combat photography would be exciting but it scares me a bit... not only because it can be dangerous but because I take many things I observe to heart. I'm scared that witnessing such events would just eat me alive.. at the very least, it would make me a darker pessimist than I am already. Kinda reminds me of my abnormal psychology professor (my all time favorite class in college). He was a big shot criminal psycologist for a long time and extremely good at what he does. Unfortunately, he himself just could handle dealing with such topics on a daily basis... he blames his 7 failed marriages on his work. I guess you have to be of strong mind, soul, and spirit to take on such topics.

    In reality.. I do anything...it just has to catch my eye. I've got a very limited amount of time (if any) to totally focus on photography (hopefully I can improve on that in a year or so). So in essense, beggers can't be choosers.

    I shoot horse events. It is the biggest challenge I've encountered in 40+ years of shooting.

    Sit a biped on a quadruped and you've got your work cut out for you.
