Anyone need a photographer?

My camera is starting to look amazingly…what’s the word I’m looking for…oh yes…ridiculous.

So this summer I plan to be shooting a lot and practicing a lot and, yes, trying to learn how this camera works a lot. Anyone reading this want to be my model?

I’ll do engagement sessions, couples photos, family photos, Christmas card photos, baby photos, messing around in a park photos, photos in front of a giant W sign (coughWaltercough), photos of dogs, photos of cats, boudoir photos (if you really want?), event photos, headshots (but I won’t do your makeup Eric), or anything you want! I really just want to practice taking pictures of people in more of a planned setting.
I’ll get to practice, you’ll get a DVD of images. You can use them for whatever you want or not use them at all. Sound good? Drop me an email or leave a comment if you’re interested in helping a girl out!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    I do not have *need* of a photographer, but I’d be happy to help one out if she wants to make use of a rather pudgy model. 🙂

    I’d help, but i’m geographically distant enough to make it a pain for either of us

    Sid, don’t think you can use distance as an excuse as 2 other champaigners said they might help!
    Plus I always need an excuse to head out there 🙂

    That light on the camera is neat…but is it painful to look into?
    I think that I am perhaps too geographically distant to practice on. Best of luck though!

    it is very painful if you accidentally turn up the flash to full blast…not that i did that right in front of my eyes…but I took the self-portrait I posted the other day with it and it was fine.

    I don’t have any official need for a photographer, but I’ll gladly hang out… you know I’ve got a fun schedule!
