  1. Hello! How’s it going? My name is Mike and I came across your site in search of fresh images and ideas. I really enjoy your street work! I’m a student studying photography and lately I am having trouble choosing my “niche”. I enjoy making photographs of many different things, I want to be a multi-faceted photographer in the studio and on location. I currently live in Denver and I love it here but I would be willing to move to a larger market for better career opportunity. I like everything from photojournalism to table top studio photography, so I’m trying to keep my options available.

    I think having a large skill set will be beneficial instead of just focusing on one type of photography. A lot of my classmates are focusing purely on fashion photography and sometimes I feel like an outsider because I want to be artsy but yet commercial. Maybe I’m just not sure who I am yet as a photographer, which can be confusing at times. One of my assignments is to contact 10 photographers, if you have the time to respond to this email I’d greatly appreciate it. Here are some questions for you too, if you feel any of them are obtrusive I apologize ahead of time. Thank you tons for your time!
