Everything You Need To Know About This Site
Posted by: David Arnspiger on April 16th, 2014
As a wise man once said, 'Ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself.'
This web site is built to please me. I built it based on designs from previous incarnations and ideas from other sites that I like. Other than some code snippets from AddThis, Google and some scripts I got help with, I built it with my own two hands. I improve on it as I am able to do so.
It is a reflection of me and my 'style' if you can call it that.
It also exists to show you what I can do as a photographer in hopes you will hire me to take photographs and/or video for you.
I have read that the best thing to do is to 'only show your best work'. Probably good advice, but it isn't who I am.
My main page has links to my PORTFOLIOS, my best images, the 'good advice'. I absolutely want you to see those first. It might be all you need to see about my work.
However, if you got to this point, you are looking for more. For that I have my BLOG section, where I ignore the 'good advice'.
I am the guy who likes to see backstage, behind the magic. I want to know how the trick was done. I look at the behind the scenes photos and how they built everything. I like to see that stuff.
My stories show you a lot of images. Most of them are good, many of them un-edited and even some truly bad images. The stuff other people think I shouldn't show you.
The reason I share these images is so that I can talk about the learning process of taking those shots. This section of my page is for the people who want to see behind the scenes. What I have done, how I did it and what it taught me. What makes me the photographer that I am.
If this approach makes you think less of me and my work, I am sorry to know we won't work together. I am hoping that it inspires others.
There is a lot of information here, and I hope you will find it interesting and visit often to see my progress as I learn more about my craft.
Most of all, I hope it helps you to make the decision to hire me to create some 'traumantic' images for you.
I hope to work with you soon.
