I am a professional photographer, I enjoy my career choice more than most people would know. I often use photography as a stress relief as well as a means of income. I am open for commissions and I will link to my models when able. Most of what you will see on my profile here is cosplay photography as per that is what I do the most. So in a way you can say that is what I specialize in. I am ALWAYS open to questions and critique. If i can somehow build my skills and continue to adapt I know I will become one of the best. I know I am still a fair amount from that goal however even after doing photography for nearly 12 years, I know I still have much to learn.

We have some FANTASTIC photographers out there that deserve some attention! This is going to be a monthly blog to highlight photographers who have submitted their work from around the world. These deviations include Macro, landscape, cosplay, models, animals, urban, and in the future a couple more topics including concerts, weddings, parties, studio photography, clubbing, and other such fun!

All you have to do to be eligible for the featured photography is submit your works to :icona-cameras-essence: and once a month the admins will help choose their favorite deviations. Artists can be selected for more then one topic however the deviation that is chosen for that months featured cannot be featured in future months blog entries.  If you have more photos from that photo set, you are more then welcome to post them and there is a chance your works can be featured a second time but with a different image then the first.
