Am I really first ? No way.. Been following you on Deviant art for years now. Recently got a camera and moved to an university area where there are many media campuses in Xiasha Hangzhou China. Thought I'd give you a shout out. I am just looking for ideas.

Greetings, just getting back into photography. I love your work! Just read about you in Digital Photo Pro. I really enjoy portrait, street, and journalistic photography but fashion intrigues and intimidates me at the same time. Thank you for your tips and I love your profile pic as well.
