So, the first Featured Photographer I am selecting is ….. Me!
Yes, myself, and with a special purpose in order to get this section of the Blog off the ground. This first one will serve as a template for you to review and understand what I will need from you to select You as a Featured Photographer!.
Featured Photographer: Jerry Kneupper (I will need your name, obviously).
Personal Bio: I have been interested in photography since the day I saw my first 35mm camera in a college graphic arts class. It was completely manual, it didn’t even have a built in light meter! After I returned from service to my country, I took advantage of the “G.I. Bill” and enrolled in some classes at the local Junior College. Luckily for me, Dr. John Boykin taught the B&W evening photography classes. Having purchased a Petri 35mm SLR while in the service, I set about learning about photography and how to use the 35. Dr. John was a tremendous instructor, and I gained a lifelong love and appreciation for photography from his classes. Life, marriage, and children, intruded greatly on my time for the hobby, and I believe if it were not for the advent of Digital Cameras a few years ago, I would not have experienced this renewed interest in the craft. Along with digital, came the surge of the internet, discussion boards, and many new and knowledgeable friends. Of course, along the way, I started reading about the possibility of shooting in IR, and I just had to try it. I always felt that I wanted to start up a web site or “something” online to share everything we know about IR. I decided to give the Blog a try, and the rest is, as they say, history.
My favorite Infrared Images: (pick out 3 to 6 images from your publicly viewable gallery to display here).
My Gallery of my Best Infrared Work: (the gallery must be publicly viewable and directly linkable).
My IR Gallery
Copyright Statement: All Images and materials displayed and showcased here, are copyrighted and are the exclusive property of the artist. Images and material may not be reproduced or used in any way without the written consent of the artist.
So, there you have it, a very simple package. Everything I will need from you to be considered for selection in a periodic “Featured IR Photographer Showcase”. You probably already have a public gallery up of your best work, or you could easily assemble one from your existing online galleries. Please size your images as you would for posting in other forums. 640x480 pixels or close will be acceptable.
Email me with your package submission.
My email policy: Email me at infraredbuzz at gmail dot com. In order for me to keep valid email messages and dispense with spam you MUST include this "secret handshake" in the subject line. "scooter" (my cat's name). So for example: your subject line would look something like this "scooter hey Jerry I have IR info for you". If I don't see that word somewhere in the subject line, into the cosmic bit bucket goes the email, no exceptions (unless I happen to recognize your email addy). Thanks for your understanding. I expect a lot of unfamiliar email traffic.
