Jim Duke, Dripping Springs/Austin Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement Greetings, and welcome to my Imagekind page. I'm a longtime photographer and professional pilot who flies for a major airline. Recently I decided to get back into photography as more than a hobby-a second business. And I've been having a blast as this journey progresses.
My style I would say leans toward the voyeuristic, an observer of sorts, especially with people and wildlife as the subject. I look for interesting compositions in objects that normally wouldn't be that interesting to look at. I love that about the camera-several people will see a different perspective of the same subject.
Recently I have started to get serious about astrophotography-a very difficult subject to master, requiring patience, technical knowledge, and of course the right equipment!
