First off I'd like to express my gratitude and appreciation to for the gift of a one-year premium membership! Wow, such a selfless act - to know that someone appreciates my work so much to do such a thing is truly an honour. Thanks so much David. He's also quite a decent photographer in his own right, he doesn't have any nudes in his gallery but does however have some fantastic landscapes - please check them out!
A bit about me:
I've been a Deviant for almost 8 years (under another moniker). Although I am still keeping the old profile out of historical and sentimental reasons, I won't be linking back there - as it is, every week I have about 40 new favs in my old gallery as well as a decent flow of new watchers, I am trying to migrate these appreciators of my work over here.
This new profile marks a new era in terms of my photography and direction and I think so far the response to my work has been fantastic. I feel I've progressed quite a bit since the early days and I've been shooting for a little over 20 years. I'm also getting a lot better with my post-processing work, always learning though and I still have a ways to go in certain aspects. There are of course shots that I'm still very proud of from the old days, anything that still meets my current requirements as being good enough will be moved here.
The response to this new profile, thanks in part to the way groups work nowadays, has been overwhelming. So far I have 61 devs in my gallery (a few in scraps), 81,000 dev views, almost 4,500 favs - with 209 favs for , my most viewed dev is
I have received almost 8,500 page views as well. Pretty crazy.
All this and I only started posting under my new profile in June. Pretty blown away by the response. Thanks to all who have commented or faved my work! I will try my best to post new work regularly, repost some of my best older work and continue to improve as a photographer.
I've also sold two prints, already way ahead of my previous profile in such a short time. I still haven't received a DD in all my years here - not that it's super important, but I have been a Deviant for a long time and it would just kind of validate my work in some way.
Thanks in advance for all the favs and watches, I'll try to do my best to respond quickly to all comments, probably won't be able to thank for favs as much as I'd like, but I'll try when I can. (Two small children and a family business to help run eats most of my time, lucky enough to even get to shoot sometimes and post-process occasionally as well
The vast majority of my shoots, especially the recent ones, are done together with my wife, she also occasionally features in some of my work as well. We even manage to share the camera and work rather nicely together while shooting. We met here on DA about 7.5 years ago and she was responsible for me moving 7,000+ km from Toronto to Tallinn Estonia Love you babe - obviously !
Check her profile out here One of her pieces that deserves far more recognition is:
She's not quite as active as I am on DA, but by all means check her stuff out as well. She might even respond to comments eventually
Recently we have actually started doing photography and body-casting professionally, which is kind of cool. Making some money doing what you love is always a good thing in my books. Hopefully we can manage to convince a few of our clients here or there to post some of the work here - at least anonymously when they aren't comfortable with showing their face
Thanks again for all the support people, so many page views, comments and truly a huge amount of favs!
