Wow, it's amazing to read through this post and realize there are so many artists in DC all stuck in day jobs and longing to meet other artists.  I'm not alone! 

I'm an attorney/consultant in IT and an emerging photographer.  I started consulting independently so that I'd have more flexibility to pusue a career in photography.   I like shooting creative portraits and travel photography and plan to pursue commercial work as I gain experience.  I shoot digital although I'm in awe of those who've mastered shooting portraits in traditional black and white - I may revisit the darkroom someday.  I'm hoping both to meet people I can talk photo-techno talk with (and bounce technical questions off) as well as those with an eye for art and beauty in general (and feel mutual inspiration). my site is http://www.reneecobbphotography.com

Hello all,

My name is Hugh and I recently found out about this site at the CHAW photography opening this past January. Great idea and I am lucky to have found you all.

The medium for me is photography. I was very creative as a child, but pursued psychology and engineering (day job - patent examiner). I picked up a camera about 10 years ago, but only took snapshots. My passion took over and I started taking classes at Corcoran (excellent teachers!) last spring. I started "seeing" about a year ago, and haven't looked back. I recently won honorable mention for a piece called "Postcard from the Edge" at the CHAW exhibition (sorry about the plug, but it meant a lot to me  :biggrin:).


What is photography to me?

The only way to take a photograph is with the heart. A photograph is a visual haiku; a tone-poem (thank you Suzanne and Marcelo for the teachings).

I take photographs to experience life and to express what can't be expressed in words.

I explore all photographic mediums and approaches. I  work with film, digital, pinhole, polaroid, zone-plate, infrared, ultra-violet, and alternative processes. I experiment with abstract, interpretative, psychological and time-lapse photography. I also experiment with combinations of these approaches. I carry out extensive research to investigate new techniques and approaches.

I directly experience the world and see it in a new way each time I take a photograph. Each photograph is an exploration without pre-conception. The inspiration can come from anywhere - memories, feelings, books, songs, or whatever is happening before me. I begin by
experimenting with a process or a theme. I explore the concept and follow the image to where it takes me.

Regards,

Hugh

Hi everyone,

Happy to join this board.  Thanks so much Jesse for your efforts in connecting the DC art community!

I'm Alex.  Originally from Miami, and am now studying at Georgetown Law.  Been long interested in modern art, especially conceptual art. 

Came across this wonderful printmaking place - workshop, studio, gallery all in one - a couple months ago, and have been really enjoying taking etching classes there each week.  The place is Union Printmakers Atelier, http://www.unionprintmakers.com/
located at 926 N St. Rear NW (926 Blagden Alley)
and I highly recommend it!  It's a large, spacious, warehouse-type space, with all the old school equipment for etching, lithography, engraving, etc.  Has a really good vibe and the person that runs it, Scip Barnhart - who also teaches at the Corcoran - is a great teacher.  The classes are pleasantly affordable.  Even if you have no interest in learning the techniques of printmaking, you should drop by and check out the space, the art, the equipment, and watch the artists who come in and do work in there!

Alex

Hello Jesse and Friends, My name is Eileen Wold and I am a painter.

I just moved back to DC from NYC where I was painting full time in the east village.  I went to school at Loyola in Baltimore and got my degrees in Studio Art and Art History.  I also studied at the Leuven Art Academy in Belgium. 

I work with mostly oil on canvas and generally paint landscapes.  About a year ago I started painting smokestacks.  The kind of post industrial landsacpe you find in northern new jersey and along 95.  I just started painting full time about 2 years ago so i am still just trying to make ends meet but the whole thing has been worth every sacrafice. 

Great to meet you all!

Hi creative artists,

I'm Miki. I just joined this group recently. My Bachelor degree is in Art and Psychology. In my grad school, I studied social work and art therapy. I paint in Oils and also do shadowbox collage. Most of my works are contemporary. I love looking at surrealist's artworks.

Good to know that there is a group of artists here in D.C. area!

Hello!  My name is Janice .I have been actively painting in mixed media now for the past 2 1/2 years.  I have had no formal art training,but am continuously learning and trying out new things.  I basically do portraitures of children and animals, but in between commissions, I do my own paintings, based on photos taken of things that inspired me.

I do not have a web-site yet, but do have some of my work showing under Ann Kullberg, the portrait artist.  I am a member of FMP, an on-line magazine for colored pencil artists.

In researching a name, I found this site, and found it to be quite informative, so I registered.  I hope to become active in the posts.

Hello ArtDC!!

A quick hi to a newbie member...my name is Valerie and I am an artist, figure model, teacher and costume designer.  I've recently undertaken a new series of silk paintings inspired by native american heritage.  Feel free to check out my rather unconventional website- www.valeriestpierresmith.8.com.  The "What's New" link will take you to a couple of samples.

At any rate, I am looking forward to learning more about the art scene, expecially places to get my work up.  OH!  And if any of you haven't heard, there is a great new organic/fair trade store down by Logan Circle- Future Green...they are also looking for new (realistic) artists.

Ciao for now!!

Hey it's milad. I used to roll with the ArtDc gang last year. Had a bit of a self-imposed exile as I cleared up stuff like college and getting my health in order. I'm ready to get involved in the Artworld again and make some friends doing it now though.

My website is http://miladmeamarian.blogspot.com/

I've posted pics from my senior thesis show up now if anyone's interested. It was a real personal tipping point, because I've never sold anything before and I sold 4 prints from that show! See y'all around the board...

Hello all.  At this point in the lifespan of this board, I imagine we all know Jesse, but not necessarily each other.  It'd be great if everyone could give a blurb about themselves.

Anyway, I'm Tami.  I'm a first year grad student getting my Masters of Fine Arts at Towson.  My focus is black and white photography, mostly having something to do with alternative presentation.

Im Mark, Fashion and Landscape photography.  Anyone else in Photography?
