My first two model releases, and my first shots with real people!

Several days ago a pair of great friends signed MR's with me. I've been photographing both of them over the summer. We climb together several times a week, and I've been working on photographing climbers (not as easy as you'd think).

This morning I got my first approval for shots with my "models" in them, and it's really exciting! Going forward I think this will be a lot of fun. First I was glad to meet them because they're a married couple who climbs together. Makes it easier to find a few folks to climb with last minute. And now I can upload some of our better climbing shots (I've got tons of those shots).

I'll have to see what else we can do with "outdoor people" photos. This is a new realm for me. I've always stayed away from photos with people in them, so now I get to learn and experiment some more!

Glad I started in with Dreamstime. It's really getting me to think about how I shoot, and it's getting me to try things I wouldn't have tried otherwise.

Oh, 2 photos away from 100! Fun, fun, fun!

Gabe. Bouldering is "low climbing". You climb with no rope. Usually on boulders. But you can also pick a cliff, and climb left to right 2 feet off the ground. If you search on my blog for Groom Creek and Wolf Creek I think I have some bouldering pics and video. Glad you like my blog. Thanks!
