ShanP-8299's Profile Picture
Shan Putnam
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
I am a hobbyist photographer residing in San Diego. I use to live in Jakarta - 7 yrs or so - meet my wife there; I am part of a photography team, as my wife (Nelly Putnam) is a very experienced photographer and retoucher. We usually shoot together on all sessions.

Over the past 20 years, I have traveled extensively throughout world, including North America, Asia, Europe, Middle East and Africa (sorry South America!). I have always been interested in photography, and started like most everyone, the observational / candid photographer, in other words photography was just point-n-click with some expensive gear.

Over the past couple of years or so, I have started to get very serious about my photography and have taken the time to learn the technical, practical and art of photography as well as post-production treatment using a variety of software programs.

I am primarily interested in glamor / fashion photographer utilizing several different environments. I am quite creative in developing unique concepts and enjoy the challenge of matching the concept to the model. I love to shoot on location and have a lot of lighting experience.

 ||   Nelly and I, along with many well-known photographers & bikini / fitness models will be heading to the Grand Bahamas (April 2013) and the Cancun (Oct 2013) to photograph professional bikini models for the International Bikini Model Search and Shoot   - both were amazing!  In addition, we've been doing quite a bit of shooting in L.A. and here in San Diego - some amazingly beautiful models.... shooting there nearly every weekend. Fantastic time and 1000s of photos!!
