I've been a photographer for almost my whole life. I remember the little plastic camera my Dad bought me early on. I don't remember the brand but it was probably something like a cheap version of Fisher Price now-a-days. I broke it trying to hack it to take multiple exposures - which I really wanted to try doing.
My clients have mostly been organizations wanting photos at concerts and conferences. The Presbyterian Church in Canada (annually for about 10 years) and The Vital Spark Folk Society come to mind first.
Clients often ask for a story told via photo gallery or a photo essay of an event put to video. Here's a video photo essay done for Burns Presbyterian Church to celebrate their gifts within the congregation during 2007 and 2008 (I did most of the shooting and all of the editing).
