Who am I? That’s a great question, but if you have had a sneak peek at my blog you are getting a good idea that I am very creative. My name is Dale Malcolm, and I live in the busy city of New York. I find myself being very inspired by the city life. I have always been a creator of sorts, and that passion is now becoming my career.
I am a 38 year old photographer who enjoys taking outdoor shots. I have managed to keep myself busy, and am starting to get some media coverage. I hope by starting this blog, I can further my career, and open new doors. I have lived in New York for 5 years now, and came here mainly because I needed a change in my life. There was a lot of negative energy where I once lived, and it seemed it was my time to find a new beginning. I have never been happier than I am right now in my life.
I do photography full time, and continue to find new ways to be creative. Besides photographing, I also enjoy drawing and painting. I suppose some would call me a well rounded artist. I think my favorite shoot was during a rain storm in the redwoods. The energy and passion that came from these shoots left me wanting more rain… LOL….
I am single, and do not have much family. I have 2 best friends I consider family, as they are the ones I spend holidays with and all my spare time. I am a fun and loving person, which helps when working in an intense environment. When I am photographing someone I make it my job to ensure that they are comfortable and having a good time. I have several clients that continue to come back to me because of this. If the person that you are photographing is not comfortable, the pictures could turn out to be a disaster.
My plan for this blog is to share my work, as well as give pointers on how to capture your subject matter, do product reviews, talk about the best lighting, and so on. I really hope to help those who are starting to venture into the photography world. Equipment can be quite pricy, but I have a lot of tips and tricks to make use of a budget friendly camera. It’s not always about the most expensive brands. If you have the know how, you can use any camera to capture a masterpiece.
I hope you enjoy my blog, and I really look forward to your questions and comments. I hope to have a question and answer section where you can go and find the answer to common problems. Photography is a passion of mine, and I feel blessed that I get to do what I love every single day. Plus, my scenery is always changing, how could anyone get bored? There are so many amazing places to take photographs, and I will share some of the best spots that I have found. Thanks for stopping by!
