Hi, my name is Larry Leone. I sat down today to write my first contribution to PhotoNetCast. Then I thought before I do, let me tell you guys a little bit about myself, what I do and give you an idea of what you can expect from me in the future.
I’m a NY / NJ based photographer. I work in marketing for a New York City based company, where my role includes photographing corporate events and head-shots. I also freelance in New Jersey shooting portraits, weddings and other events. I recently had the privilege of shooting two very talented recording artists for their album art and promotional material (more on that later).
For fun, I shoot medium format and 35mm film. I own a variety of film cameras and usually use film in the fall and winter when work slows down. You can probably expect a post or two about film, developing, and cameras also.
With that out of the way, I want to state that anything I write is based on personal experience and opinion. I photograph both on location and in the studio. I love lighting locations and learn from each and every experience. The kind of things I plan on writing about will cover a broad spectrum. Expect anything from location problems to gear that I found helpful (or not so helpful) to dealing with clients.
I’m sure I’m not the first person to do certain things that I will write about and I know I won’t be the last. If I use something that someone has taught me directly I will quote them and provide a link to their site. Nothing in this art is set in stone and is always subject to change.
I look forward to sharing my experiences with the readers of PhotoNetCast. If there is a subject you’d like covered, feel free to drop me an e-mail: AskLarry@larryleone.com .
Ed.: Welcome to the community Larry. Looking forward to read what you have to share, and I hope all our audience will make you feel as welcome as we feel with them.
