Hiya, I'm wally! :D

I've shot a number of weddings on my own already but am more than willing to shoot as a second shooter for anyone who needs help. I've got a pretty defined style of shooting but wouldn't mind expanding my skill set. Just PM me if you'd like more info or visit my website to see more of what I have done.

:thumb

EDIT:

In case you need to know what gear I carry (in my backpack all the time):

Nikon D610

Nikkor 50mm f/1.4
Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8
Sigma 24-35 f/2.0 ART
Nikkor 70-200mm VR f/2.8
Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

SB-600 (x2)
AB1600 / Battery
Stofen OmniBounce
Lumiquest Softbox III
Orbis Ringlight Attachment
Nikor Battery Grip / Spare Battery

RF-602/622N wireless RF triggers (to keep the SB-600 off camera; I shoot one handed all the time)

I'll try to keep this first post updated with my most recent work:

From three weddings in the past two weeks...

    Wally,
    I'm also in the DC area (not a pro) ... where are you renting a body for $35? eek7.gif Some lenses are that low, but for a whole weekend... I'd think like $100 for a camera body...

    Adorama but it looks like they raised their rates $10 to $45 for a three day weekend. thumb.gif

    Do you go to NY to rent? Adorama doesn't ship, last time I checked.

    Well you can tell how many times I've done it and how dismayed I would have been to find that I couldn't!! (without renting a whole week that is).

    Thanks for the tip! Now to find someone local...

    I had no idea... seemed like you had rented there a bunch of times ;~).
    I can recommend Penn Camera, they've got lots of locations around the DC area.

    I haven't had to rent yet. I've been using my D50 as a backup (or in the case of this last wedding, a weekend ago, my brother and his gear lol).

    EDIT: Wow, it's $50 more for a week of use from adorama than it is for a day with Penn. Dang. lol.

    I did! I got a real website instead of my doofy blog (which will still be updated). I got a nifty facebook page too so yeah, I'm totally stoked. :D

    My brother said I should clarify and let people know that I'm not looking to second shoot AND get paid. I'd like to second shoot because I love photographing weddings. :) I'm not above being a VAL and helping people :D

    That said, here are are a couple of shots from this weekend :)
