    Experienced Film shooter and new member from Florida saying "HI".

    Hello everyone. I'm located in the cultural and artistic wasteland of southwest Florida and I'd like to expand my photographic conversations from the confines of this region. I've been shooting film since 1992 (horribly at first) but on a professional level since 1998. My "day job" is spent as a film Director and Cinematographer, with still photography filling in the gaps between shoots. Over the past few years I've been devoting an increasing amount of time toward my still work, and I exclusively shoot film.

    I'm a somewhat atypical shooter, as I've hybridized my still photography with my cinematographic skillset. I primarily shoot 6x7 Medium Format and 4x5 Large Format, with a rare bit of 35mm. The majority of what I shoot is darker and more horror-oriented, with constructed sets, props, models, and scripted "scenes". While I primarily shoot standard stocks, I've tried to shoot as many oddball films as I can find, everything from microfilm to color infrared. I use a lot of different mechanical, optical, chemical, and lighting techniques, as I try to create a unique workflow for each series I produce.

    It's difficult to discuss film and photography locally, I'm hoping to change that by posting here. Here's a link to my website, questions and critiques are welcome.

    Welcome!

    -) Intriguing photos at your site. But how to get that title/control field out of the image area? Sometines it covers the essential part.

    -) Do you use film for you cinematic work?

    -) What is the respirator mask in your avatar about?

    I've looked at your site. If you're an example of who's there, your comment about the cultural and artistic wasteland of southwest Florida seems way too limiting. Your work is very creative and fresh. Congrats and welcome to APUG. PS: I do agree with the last poster about the title field.
