About Kolter


Bio

Digital Photography Only

My name is Kolter and I am a die-hard photographer. I live and breathe through the viewfinder of my camera. In fact, I am pretty sure I was almost killed recently while I was hiking at night to shoot a lake at sunrise. My imagination had me completely convinced that there was a plethora of deadly beasts just waiting to devour me should I turn off the protective beam of my flashlight.

Details:

I work as a hotel and model home photographer for the popular real estate...

Digital Photography Only

My name is Kolter and I am a die-hard photographer. I live and breathe through the viewfinder of my camera. In fact, I am pretty sure I was almost killed recently while I was hiking at night to shoot a lake at sunrise. My imagination had me completely convinced that there was a plethora of deadly beasts just waiting to devour me should I turn off the protective beam of my flashlight.

Details:

I work as a hotel and model home photographer for the popular real estate photography provider RTV.
Also, I frequently accompany and assist DC photographer Duane Lempke.

Credentials:
I studied photography under the training of (as mentioned above) Duane Lempke.

My teaching method is as follows: Hands on. In the field. (or marsh or forest etc)

1. DO IT!!!!!!!
I will accompany you on photographic excursions. Through one on one instruction I can teach and demonstrate the necessary steps to becoming a photographer. I can explain all the nuances of photography but like driving a car, you can't do it until you do it. Now, this is not to say that one should just run around taking snappies of everything that moves. There really is a thought process that must be followed.

2. Your camera has nothing to do with it.
Rather than go into a rant about equipment and its perceived magical abilities to make you into a photographer, I will simply refer you to point number 2.

3. Please refer to point number 2.

4. If you already went out and spent the kids' college funds on a new camera, I will be happy to show you how it works.

Background:
My passion for photography grew from the time that I received a dinky little plastic film camera at the age of 10. I received two rolls of film (never developed) and a big box full of batteries. After having the camera for only a few weeks I decided to test EVERY single battery in the big box by putting them in my camera releasing the shutter. I am happy to announce that all the batteries did indeed work, but my camera really took a beating. It gave up the ghost shortly thereafter.

I love photography and you will too!!!
Its always great to hear people ask "did you REALLY take that photo?"
