My name is Jeff Fox and I am a photo enthusiast / amateur photographer. My photographic interests include, but are not limited to Black & White, Landscape, Urban, Travel, People, Wildlife, and Macro Photography. Presently, I am shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II and accompanying L series lenses. The photo editing that I do is limited, but consistently involves the use of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop Elements, and the occasional implementation of Photomatix Pro for HDR imaging. In a nutshell, this is where I am coming from with my photography.
Photography really didn't enter my world until around 2003. I moved to Seattle the summer of this year (primarily for educational purposes) and as a means of recording my experiences here in the Pacific Northwest, I purchased a refurbished Canon PowerShot A75. I shot thousands of pictures in automatic mode on this puppy, all the while learning (on a very rudimentary level) more and more about the elements of compositions that were pleasing to the eye.
After some enlightening conversations with my father, and after doing a little bit of research on the subject of photography, it occurred to me that the possibility existed that I could have far more control over the look and feel of my images. This realization (circa spring 2008) pushed me into purchasing a slightly more advanced camera, which was the Canon PowerShot G9. In effect, this investment altered my original photographic purpose of simple documentation to attempts at producing aesthetic/artistic renderings.
Two more years passed and all the while I picked up small and large bits of info about photo gear and photographic goals. Additionally, I finally completed my technical (radiology) and academic (psychology & philosophy) degrees. As a result of no more school, free time was now a real possibility. My passion for photography thus inspired me to fill this large hole in my schedule (i.e., my free time) with even more experience and education on the subject of photography. And here we are now, with a Canon 5D Mark II in one hand, or rather on a tripod, a stack of photo books in the other, and a website in front of me (and in front of you of course).
Wow. That was pretty boring eh. Hope this doesn't stop you from moving on to the pictures though. I am a much better photographer than autobiographer ... I hope anyway.
Thanks so much for visiting! And hope you enjoy the view!
