What's up ladies, my name is David. I am 25 years of age and live in Seattle, Washington. I have blonde hair, golden-brown eyes depending on the season, average, broad shoulders, and I am 5'8". What I do in my spare time is I'm a Photographer that specializes in Digital Photography and High Definition Video. I am always on the go and I run my own Business named SlickPix Photography. I like to have fun and enjoy spending time outdoors. I am also a night time stringer for the media. If you don't know what that is I will tell you. Ok, so why would Television News use Stringers ? Really for the same reasons and many more. From time to time, the stations my not have enough photographers to cover all thats going on. Some might be on other assignments, for example. The biggest reason stations use stringers today, is that taboo shift known to us all as the Grave Yard shift. You see, at night, stations have anywhere between 1 and 4 people working over night, and none of them are photographers, they are writers and producers, the guys and gals that make the news possible. Sure they can always make a call and wake up a station photographer ... that’s what being on call is all about. Most stations do have their own people on call, and they will call them out if its a big story like a car wreck, that will have a freeway closed to morning to rush hour or a major gas leak, where they have evacuated a large area, or a big 5 alarm fire. This is where the news stringer comes in. We are already out and about, and most of the time can get there, before a station can get someone up and out there. The stations might show our video at first, and then go to their reporter on scene with an update and more details. Stringer footage is used a lot for covering the weekend spot news, as well as the over night events. We, the stringer that is, are for the most part, professional photographers who like the freelance gig, we are our own boss. We bought and paid for our own gear, in my case a Canon XHA1 video camera and a Canon 7D. So how do we know where and what to shoot? Thats where the Police scanners, and trunk trackers come in, we stringers listen to them. So in all I am a really nice and funny guy who always will make you laugh and I am also really sweet. So if that sounds appealing to you then let me know.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My first date would be taking you out for a lovely dinner and a movie and then either walk along the beach holding hands and talk for awhile and see where it goes from there or take you up into the mountains or somewhere really dark to go star gazing and I can point out all of the different stars and constellations. I would end the night by dropping you back off and kissing you on your cheek and telling you goodnight and hopefully to see you again soon or see whatever you are feeling. :)
