  • Aspiring Photographer

    Hello all,

    I'm new to GDF (today) and I stumbled across this forum while searching for a freelance graphics designer and became hooked once I started reading posts.

    A year ago I decided to carry on my father's legacy by taking photography serious. I registered a business name and would like to specialize in affordable yet quality wedding photography and studio portraits (the key word is affordable as photography will be a hobby, not my profession). I've embed myself in many blogs and I've studied many youtube clips learning the basics so I'll begin purchasing equipment in the next few months. Thanks to many resources I've developed a list of essential gear for professional photographers. For now I'm practicing with a T3i, but I plan to purchase the 5D Mark IV with some very expensive lenses in the next month or two (I know I don't need all of that right now but the wifey said YES to my new set of toys .

    I'm a graphics designer as well so I'm pretty familiar with Adobe editing software.

    I just wanted to introduce myself and I look forward to growing with the community.

        I quite like it to be honest, it's not too stuffed but it's clean, easy to remember! Well done Dan.

        I think what you described is fairly typical of most jobs. I'm not saying it's identical but I do web design, email design, interactive apps, collateral, booth graphics, signage, posters, advertising,...
