It has been a grandiose pleasure meeting you and now seeing your work in here. We first met, of course, at a wedding in August, 2014 when you were photographing and I was playing solo guitar.
It was a serendipitous pleasure when you contacted me two years later to ask me to perform at the Molalla Historical Society Apple Festival on September 10, 2016. That was a multi-faceted experience for me not only because I performed on the guitar but was able to put my newly-learned photography skills to work. When I brought out my camera, you told me that you were very busy with your duties at the Apple Festival and asked me if I would take some photos. Those were magic words to me, because I happen to believe that the click of a camera's shutter release is a truly beautiful sound. I took pictures and you and I shared photography and photo marketing techniques, and we have agreed to get together in your studio to share information about the many aspects of the craft and business of photography.
You also inspired me to become a registered member of Zenfolio - an action that will, I believe, serve me very well as I expand my skills and portfolio as a photographer.
I am very much looking forward to spending time with and learning from you how to become a much better photographer. Thank you for taking the time to remember me from that wedding two years ago and being willing to share your skills and ideas with me.
