Visual CV – Who am I?

A friend, Timothy Neesam introduced me to the notion of contemplative photography via Kim Manley Ort. One of her ideas is to create a visual CV. It’s an interesting notion: a visual response to a series of questions about oneself.  Without further ado, here are my answers:

Who are you? 


Why photography?


What is your trademark photographic style?


 What truly inspires you?


Where do you go when you close your eyes?


Where is home for you?


How would you describe your lifestyle?


What makes a great shot?


How do you view the world? 


What is an important lesson you learned?

About Al Doerksen

I'm sort of a vocational tramp; my working career divides about evenly between non-profit and the business worlds. I have lived in Mexico, India, Germany and Canada, and now USA. I've had the good fortune to travel to 90 countries of which at least half are developing countries. The last 25 years of my "career" have involved significant (and enjoyable) international management challenges: travel industry, furniture manufacturing, food (aid) programming and ultraviolet water treatment among others. I'm now leading a development enterprise called IDE.

    This IS your visual CV, Al. Your trademark photographic style, your lesson learned–all the YOU I have come to know over the past several years on Blip. You know yourself. I admire that in a person.
