Hi, My name is Shannon Rogers and I am only brand new to FFA and still trying to get my head around it all :) I was told about this amazing place a while ago and I finally got time to sign up and Upload some of my works! I'm sorry if this is not the place to Introduce myself as I have no Idea, so if it isn't I do apologize!

Once I get my brain familiarized with all this, I will be out and about checking out all your work. For what I have seen so far I am totally blown away. So much talent here, so for now I'll be over here under my little rock trying to figure it all out :)

If you have some spare time, I would really love for you to come over to my little corner of FAA and say hello and make a (Kind) comment lol, if any of my work catches your eye. So firstly thank you for taking time out to read this and I hope I get to become your new friend here on FFA :) Keep Smiling and stay safe!!!!!!

Yours sincerely

Shannon Rogers

I have put up a sample Image of my Work!!

Hi, Shannon -- welcome to FAA! :-)

This is exactly the place to introduce yourself and your work to the ranks. I had to laugh while reading this in your bio --

. . . Photographers are very mean. First, they frame you, then they shoot you, then hang you on the wall,"

Oh dear! :-)

Hi Wendy, very nice to meet you and I really appreciate you taking time out to say hello. I was starting to think there were no friendly people around here lol, with over 20 Views and no one had left a comment, then you came along :) So thank youuuuuuuuuu as I thought I walked into a lonely planet lol.

Yeah that saying a beauty, once I heard it I had to use it, it's a classic :)

Thank you once again, it's wonderful people like you that help people smile and keep the world going around :)

Hi Abbie, sorry you must have sent that while I was replying to Wendy lol. Thanks for the pointing me to the help section, much appreciated :) I'm slowly getting my way around, so much to learn and so many corners to take lol.

And thank you for your kind words on my Image Storm Over Ruin, it has been one of my best Sellers :)

Once again thank you so kindly for taking time out to give me some tips and look at my work, I'm forever grateful :)

Thank you

Thank you so much Andrew, a pleasure to meet you mate :)

Good morning Roger - beautiful work you have. So you don't feel that it's all a bed of roses here - just don't forget - roses grow on thorny bushes. That being said - welcome. BTW - do you know what time it is - these folks are mostly not up yet. Except for Abbie - but she is across the pond and about to go to bed.

Hi Shannon...welcome aboard. You have some great images. A quick suggestion though...separate your images into galleries for easier viewing. Add some descriptions to your wonderful artwork.

Love this:

So I promise I will have a write up about them all and put them into Galleries :) once again thank you so very much :) Yeah that Image Pelicans Pride won the Front Cover of the Almanac here in Australia for 2012 and won me over $7000 worth of Prizes
