Description I finally found a parking structure downtown that provides a truly great view. I've been to the top of this one before but something made it different today. Instead of just going to the top of a garage, I went to the spot I wanted to photograph and scanned the area for a vantage point. Voila, the money spot. Not on top but in the stairwell. I never would've found it had I used my usual tactics.This is a panoramic image composed of 58 individual pictures. Took a bit of work to get it right but I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Mark Cullen, Portland, Oregon Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement My first "true" photograph was taken with a friend's Nikon EM 35mm, deep in the hills of southeastern Minnesota. It was a moment of such significance that thirteen years later, I'm still passionate about photography.
While I am very proud of the professional work I've done - everything from magazine spreads to social documentaries - I mainly take photographs because...well, I love taking photographs.
I strive to take my work to new levels each day, trying to see the world a little differently, to find that new perspective. I feel incredibly lucky to have found my passion.
