My 1st Blog Post Ever - Hello and how do you do!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with www.LAHomePhotography.com

WOW!

I joined ActiveRain a couple months ago, but I've just stated to become active this past week.  So far I love the site and all the activity and enthusiasm of the members.  I just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself and say hello.  I hope to share a lot of knowledge as well as gain some knowledge from all of you.

This is not only my first ActiveRain blog, but my first blog ever, so bare with me while I work out the kinks of what to say... and what not to say. :-) If you have any suggestions on blogging here, I'm all ears.

I guess I should start off by saying a little about me.

I'm a photographer.  You name it, I shoot it!  Whether it be people, places, or things, I love making great images with my camera.

My architectural photography and real estate photography can be see at www.lahomephotography.com. I work with Architects, Commercial, Developers, Interior Designers, Contractors, Home Stagers, Model Homes, New Construction, Custom Homebuilders, Hospitality, Realtors and Real Estate Agents.

Some of my work...

My headshot and fashion work can be see at www.gregorystorm.com.  My work has appeared in fashion magazines and ad campaigns.  I've shot for clothing companies, fashion designers, models, actors, agents, web sites, etc.

I'm recently engaged and we're getting married in a couple months.  We're just starting to plan the wedding, so this will be a very fun, crazy, and scary time.  But I'm excited to say "I do."

That's it for now.  I look forward to networking with all of you!

Best,

Gregory

Hi Gregory,

I've stumbled across your posts on a couple other sites, and seen a few of your comments here as well. But welcome to Active Rain. I think you have a lot to contribute. And I said it before, on someone else's blog, but I'll say it again - GREAT PHOTOS!

By the way, congratulations on the upcoming wedding. Wait...who's going to shoot it? You've set the bar pretty high.

: )

Hi everybody!  Thanks for the warm greetings.  This is why I think ActiveRain will be my new favorite web site.  It's full of possitive people supporting each other.

Kirsten - Yes, I do MLS shots and tours.  I'll drop you an e-mail.

Michael - Hi! Finding a wedding photographer might be somewhat of a task.  I think my wife to be would be upset if I tried to shoot it myself with my cameras on remote triggers set up on tripods.  Hmmm... or would she?

Frances - That sounds like a great idea.  I'll do that.  What specific topic would be the most help?

Gregory,

Great pictures!  Welcome to ActiveRain and best wishes on your upcoming marriage.  All I can say is that I would not want to be the photographer at your wedding.  I would be scared to try to compete with what you could do!  :-)

Teddy - I joined the Elements group.  I'll post as something soon.  I'm thinking about writing a piece on retouching headshots.

The music is by a local artist John Peter West.  He is amazing.  You can check out more at http://www.myspace.com/johnpeterwest

Earleene - I'll try to go easy on the prospective photographers.  :-)

Maureen - The blog posts are on their way.  I just posted one putting your home staging business on Google Maps for free.

Welcome to ActiveRain, Gregory! You don't have to worry about what to say in your posts when you have photos like this. I'm especially impressed with #4 and #9 -- how you captured both the rooms and the outdoors so clearly. Looking forward to reading more from you!
