The Blog’s Evolution

In recent weeks and months I’ve had both friends and followers of PhotoGeek tell me they really like the direction the blog is taking and how they really enjoy and relate to the stories I post about my family and in particular, my wife. I’ve also been told numerous times by my loving, yet overbearing Word-1637mother that I seem to have broken away from a lot of the anger I held on to for many, many years. While the change and direction of the blog itself came very naturally. It wasn’t without much trepidation on my part. Anyone that knows me will probably tell you, while I am very personable and open about myself. I can also be quite repetitive as well as absent minded.

For years and even decades I’ve written and spoken about many of my life experiences with a somewhat of a dark sense of humor and irony. Often finding myself spinning tales from my past with trusted friends and to some degree, clients.              Some years ago, I was shooting the shit with a model I had worked with a number of times over the years. As we were talking she paused before telling me I needed to work on writing a book about your experiences. I explained that, while I was comfortable sharing such tales with a select few. I felt that I would not be able to write about my experiences until I had come to some sense of closure. Without going into any unnecessary details. Words-3243I found that closure and was able to move on to a point where I approach those stories with a sense of humor and strength. Ready to move forward. Ready to write without any sense of regret or resentment.

Thanks to those who shared their thoughts on the subject. While I could certainly continue posting story free photos. I prefer to express myself more openly. Until the next time.

Updates and Additions to Damion Photo

Last week I took some time to work on the website to make it a little more professional and user friendly. I changed to Portfolio section, instead featuring separate pages for my Studio, Location and Boudoir work. I’ve also added a testimonial section and improved the contact page. In the coming weeks I’ll be adding a kids/family section while adding additional testimonials.               I’ve linked the page below. Your thoughts and critiques are welcome here and privately. I’d love to hear from you.

Catching Up; The Dog Days of Summer.

It’s been a while since I posted anything but that doesn’t by any stretch of the imagination, mean that I haven’t been busy.             Though the heat and some planned renovations have brought my studio work to a grinding halt. My event and real estate photography have taken off. One of the strangest yet most rewarding types of work I’ve been getting is animal photography. I’ve always loved animals and in particular dogs.  As a kid my parents had a saluki, my grandmother a collie and my step dad a doberman. When my wife and I were getting ready to buy a condo in nearby Jersey City, we talked as much about getting an Bull Dog as much as we did about new furniture. Spending much of this Summer cavorting with canines has  been rewarding both  personally and monetarily. Experiencing the relationships and family bond between dogs and humans. One can’t help but absorb the warmth and love.  Hopefully my dog day will come soon. Lily Geek-5880Wagging Geeks II-6424Dog Face (1 of 1) Wagging Geeks-6512With a new air system I’m looking forward to a much more comfortable studio environment which should bring more exciting shoots to muse about. I just upgraded the blog giving myself a new domain name and unlimited space which will allow me to go crazy with the amount of images I can upload. All my best to my friends and those who’ve been keeping up with the blog. Stay cool and remain calm.
