About the Photographer Articia:
resident photographer for degenerati photography
day job: librarian
birth date: September 17th
I’m a young photographer that’s been behind the lens for years and I’m finally starting to get serious about it now. I currently work with a 35mm Minolta semi-manual, a 35mm fully manual Pentax, and a sony alpha DSLR. I occasionally work closely with friend and fellow photographer, Meeshi, and occasionally get to play with her Canon Rebel XTI.
I’ve done my fair share of freelance work for local newspapers, a wedding, and have spent much of my free time carrying my camera and capturing moments.
I’m, of course, your poor college student so I’m interested in TFCD at the moment or for pay. I cannot, at this time, pay models but I can offer entertainment and good conversation.
I’m open to lots of ideas so send a message my way if you’re interested in shooting. I don’t have a studio, but I have an eye for detail and an open mind.
I sometimes work closely with Meeshi of meeshisense (MM#825479) as both a photographer and a stand-in model ^_^
About the name Degenerati Photography:
1. A person who has declined, as in morals or character, from a type or standard considered normal
2. A person or thing that reverts to an earlier stage of culture, development, or evolution.
Etymology of the suffix ‘ati’
Link it to the uses of Linkerati, Technorati, ect. The mother of all/the father of all. In the case of Old Irish, the educator, or the mother/father role. Aptly used in the Webconomy. seomoz.org CEO Rand Fishkin uses it to mean ‘elite’, but in reality it is more connective than that. In a social/attention economy standard, it fits well.
Ati : mother// Gothic: athei (mother) // Oscan: aeda (father) // Hittite : attas (father)// Old Irish: aite (educator) // OldSlavic : otitshi (father) //Albanese at (father) // Indo-european : *atta(father).
Degenerati Photography may sometimes deviate, it may be simple and have no hidden message, it may just be a photo, it may be unusual and far from the norm but it will always be intersting.
