Really great Gallery! :)
Obviously, the models are all lovely, but you do a really great job at making each shoot "fresh," and your lighting is always perfect for the situation. :nod:

You're very welcome!  You have one of the most dynamic Galleries I've seen on dA - and I've been here 10 years. :)

What a compliment!  Thanks once again.

Your Gallery is amazing as well.  Love your street photography.  Particularly the B&W portraits on page 3 & 4.   In fact, your images taken in Pigtown today remind me of the B&W's taken by Dorothea Lange and Edward M. Douglas of yesteryear.  Their images taken at the time, probably seemed rather mundane.  But, today those images speak volumes.  See Shorpy:   www.shorpy.com/

If I had the street creds you apparently have, I would start with a series of images on the working girls in Pigtown.   Then homeless, then residents.  And so-forth.

I'm guessing you're a Vietnam Vet.?

TB -
You're very welcome! :nod:  And thanks so much for the compliments about the Pigtown images.  And I do have many images of the working girls of the neighborhood.  I haven't posted them because some are dead, and others have gotten clean and have made fresh starts. . .  When I first started shooting in Pigtown, it was the prostitutes, and later the cops who quietly taught me which places and people not to photograph.  So I owe those girls a huge debt.

Oh no, I'm not a vet.  That's just my most recently posted photo, taken in San Francisco years ago. 
Thanks so much for teaching me about Shorpy!!!  I had never even heard of that site before!  It is totally awesome!  I would have answered you sooner, but I was registering to join that site!  Yes, I'm huge fan of Dorothea Lange, Walker Evan, Gordon parks, and all the FSA photographers!

Anyway, it's good to "meet" you and I'll look forward to seeing more of your work! :nod:
