I am a photographer and a graphic designer located in Oregon. I work for a private boarding school, and I also shoot weddings from time to time, mostly for friends or assisting other photographers.

I'd consider myself an advanced amateur or beginning professional, whichever you'd call it. My uncle is in his 2nd year of the 365 project and was having so much fun and learning so much that I decided to try it out. I also want to study the strobist.com website and use this project as an avenue for learning about off-camera lighting, which is pretty foreign to me. If anybody wants to give me some basic tips, I am certainly interested.

My gear (some mine, some belonging to my employer but available to me) is:

Canon Rebel XT
Canon EOS 20d
Canon EOS 30d
Canon Speedlite 420EX
Canon Speedlite 580EX
EF 50mm f/1.8 II Autofocus Lens
EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Autofocus Lens
EF 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM Autofocus Lens (for sports)

    "It's pretty ridiculous how time flies. I've gotten to know Brandon these past 11 months through his 365 project and it's been awesome watching this guy grow stronger with his artistic ability. He is a great friend on flickr and he has really been an encouragement to me. Brandon has so much talent and he works well with every lighting situation that he is in. I'm pretty sure he was the one who introduced me to "ghetto strobing" a.k.a shmobist haha.
    Brandon, you seriously rock and I wish you the best of luck as you finish your 365 project. I am looking forward to seeing you grow further as an awesome photographer. keep inspiring"

    "Brandon is seriously one of the best photographers I know. He has a great eye for /THE/ shot. And as much as he knows already, I've never seen him stop pushing to know more about photography. A true professional."
