I'm Alan James Vaughn
I'm from The Valley of the Sun in Az but I've lived all over the place. I've been doing photography since Junior High School, for the year book. Now I have a real digital camera ( Sony DSC-W7 ) besides my 35 mm SLR, which I don'r use to much since it's so expensive to develope just to put on this site. I'm also an artist of sorts with an ever expanding view of art and photography. I've been doing art since I was about 7 years old painting choppers like the one the Militarty guys across the street from my family built and rode. Of course those pics were with Testors model paint on real think construction paper. I've enjoyed all types of instruction in Jr High and High school and a little in college. But have developed my own techniques and style for doing everything from watercolor with fine detail to pen and ink stippling for Sci_Fi subjects and some mixed media. I've also done design work with various metals including a short period of time that I was building custom Mountain Bikes for racing and show. To even a uniquely specialized road bike frame that was riden by Micheal Secrest to a world record back at Phoenix International Raceway that still stands at 1256 miles in 24 hours as a paced record. Some curren tmetal work include Stainless steel mirrors that are in a local dance club. I have works in private collections in America, Europe and the Mediteranian. I'm always experimenting with new stuff since working with something for to long a time gets boring and uncreative. With a little luck I'll have been able to work in as many mediums and mixed mediums that all my friends will have a unique piece from me. I've just recently started doing prints and exploring making money at art so I won't spend as much money on this hobby as I have in the past. Any comments you might have I love to hear. With out them I'll never know how bad I am!
