My name is Sam. I'm a Central Florida-based photographer.
"Hello, all. My name is Sam. I'm 18, and am trying to find my defining moment. I'm an education and photo major. I'm pr'simple; I like music, movies, photography, video games, books, friends, etc. I enjoy saving money, and movies that make me squirm. I enjoy playing cards and finishing puzzles. I love watching 'Friends' reruns, and reading Chuck Palahniuk books. I also love Guitar Hero, and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. I was born and raised in Germany, but currently reside in good ol' Florida. By the time I was in the fourth grade, I had been in 6 different schools. I currently have ideas, but truly no clue what I aspire to be in life, and I seem alright with that. I'm a very big conversationalist. I love listening, debating, and conversing. I guess if there's anything else you'd like to know before you add me and start talking; you can comment, and I'd be so inclined to answer. If you would, in fact like to add me, and it's not too much trouble, please comment this entry, so that I could keep track of things. I would really like to meet/talk to more people. :)"
I am here to meet/talk to new people; as well as get my photo project in motion.
For my photo class, I need some actual jobs. I work for free, but I need people. I'm really great with stills and live action shots of bands. And, I've almost perfected shots of people, single or in group. If you, or anybody you know, would love, or wouldn't mind, their picture taken, please oh please let me know. I don't charge, and I have a relatively open schedule, and my own means of transportation. I have somewhat of a portfolio, if you'd like one - but really, it's a lot, because I'm always with my camera, for professional/skilled pictures, or just for fun/memory.
I'd love new friends on myspace. I've my own materials and such. I don't mind going out in the 'field', getting dirty, paying to be at a show, or anything like that. I certainly have no room to complain, and the more involved I am, the more fun I have, and the more words my pictures show. Hell, I'll even pay you to find somebody that wants their picture taken and such. I'll do anything at this point. This is the biggest project of my career. Depending on how I do on this, depends on how much of a scholarship I get.
I've created a SITE to show some of my work, and for people to keep updated with things like that. I have still-life, action sports, and live music shots; but they didn't make it on the site. Today, I was told that I am in the top three of my class - my prof wouldn't tell me which number I really was. Depending on how I do on this project determines the THOUSANDS of dollars I get for my scholarship. Please, oh please. Do you have events or projects or days coming up that you wouldn't mind a photographer there? I don't need money, I have transportation, and money to pay my way through to the event/project/day. I need all the pictures I can get. I need at least 1,000 photos for each SUB-category. So, anything, and everything, will help. You can keep what I take, I'll send 'em to you; I just need to be able to turn them in, in my portfolio. On the site, you have my contact information, as well as that past entry. I will even pay you, to get me a photo-taking gig.
