0Comments

You’ve been reading their articles for months or years, have you ever wondered “Who are the photographers who write for dPS”?

Today we meet Jim Goldstein.

 Dusk at White Sands National Monument

1. How long have you been shooting?

I have been behind a camera perfecting the art of photography since the mid-1990’s. I honed my skills in the days of film and have been growing every day since as a photographer, digital and otherwise.

2. Do you have a full time job or are you a full time photographer?

jim_m_goldstein_headshot-sqI was a full-time professional outdoor photographer for sometime, but given my knack for social media & marketing I was recently recruited by BorrowLenses.com to help head up their marketing department.

3. If you had to limit yourself to one genre of photography, what would it be and why?

That is much easier said than done, but I would say Outdoor Photography.

4. When did you start writing for dPS and why?

I began writing for Darren the first day he opened his site to authors other than himself in early 2008. I pursued writing for DPS because I’m deeply passionate about sharing with the photography community at large. I strive to share my expertise, ideas and inspire others.

5. What do you shoot with and what’s your favorite lens?

These days I shoot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III when ever I have the opportunity, but always have my trusty Canon 5D Mark II with me as well. My favorite lens at the moment is a Canon EF 50mm f/1.0L lens as it is the newest lens to my collection, but the bulk of my work is shot with a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L lens.

6. What would be your number one tip to any new photographer?

Be persistent. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I was frustrated along my journey as a photographer. Very early on, when I was 15, I stopped because of it. Only after college did I return back to try again and to push my way through the learning process. Ever since I’ve embraced each challenge to push my limits and test my creativity.

7. What’s your next big project?

My next big project is a follow up to my ebook Photographing the 4th Dimension – Time.

8. Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

People can see my photography and writing on my blog: JMG-Galleries blog, my social media pages Google+, Twitter & Facebook and my ebooks/webinars at InspiredExposure.com.

    Such beauty. Stunning photographs. Only in my dreams could I hope to have the talent you display. Best wishes for continued success.

    “Be persistent” what a good advice for me now that I took some pictures of my granddaughter, none of which came up well.

    I’d like to propose an article about taking photos of a child while in a swiming pool with the sun very bright at midday, add -if you like- white slides reflecting the sun rays while other toys remain under the shadow, that’s a challenging photographic scenario.

    Thank you Jim and Peter.
