One thought on “Pheatured Photographer 2020

  1. My apologies for just responding to your email, the fact of the matter is I have two emails, my primary email, that is to say the one I’m more likely to view more often than this one is, cicero.gilreath@outlook.com.

    Ok then, I’ve gotta tell ya I enjoy questions and/or topics related to photography, I guess because I love photography, thanks for sending it.

    1). Question: Who introduced you to photography and at what age?

    Answer: My brother in law Charlie, My son Sharif had just been brought home from the hospital, my wife and I were in the bedroom playing with the baby and Charlie and said he wanted to talk with me for a minute. when I walked out he handed me a Konica camera w/a 50mm 2.8 lens, I was blown away… that was 42 years ago. 2). Question: Did that individual act as your Mentor?

    Answer: No, he gave me a crash course on the functionality of shooting manually with a film camera over the period of a month. As a result of having the camera with me alot and taking photographs of the baby I met other photographers that were helpful.

    3). Question: What was your first camera system including lenses, and what are you shooting with now?

    Answer: Konica film camera (I forgot the model) w/a 50mm 2.8 lens, I eventually purchased a 2x converter, Presently I shoot with a Nikon D-7500 and a back up Nikon D-80 with a few lenses

    4). Question: What area of photography to you specialize in?

    Answer: I enjoy shooting a variety of subject matter and hate to be placed in a box however, the following fields I have enjoyed exploring… Portraits, Architectural, Landscape, Street and Black & White Photography

    5). Question: What advice would you give to someone who is new to photography or wants to grow as a photographer?

    Answer: If you’re new, you must first determine how serious you are about it? How much do you enjoy it? How much reading you are willing to do will answer the first question for you. Because between learning the various aspects of photography and the software to edit your photographs there is a tremendous amount of reading required. If you want to grow as a photographer, the same applies and/or take a Photography, Lightroom and Photoshop class when and where you can. There’s a lot to be said for formal education.

    6). Question: Who is on your bucket list to photograph?

    Answer: It’s a what for me, The Grand Canyon, Utah to photograph the Milkyway and finally Petra in Jordan I have photographed Barack Obama while he was running for president in 2008. At what was then known as Progress Plaza on N.Broad st 10 feet away on a riser for 1hr., I was working for a small newspaper at the time.

    7). Question: Do you print and frame your work? If so, what does that experience mean to you to see your work in print.

    Answer: Yes, now more than even. At the age of 66 I can think of nothing more important then to print and frame as much as I can, I’m currently doing my new location, my worst fear is to leave my best work stuck on a laptop never to be seen by anyone and the hard drive wipe for space lol

    Yes, it is very gratifying to see my work framed on my wall, fantastic to see it on another’s wall and a blast to see it in the newspaper or magazines.
