This is my first attempt at blogging. I hope that there will be many more to come. I chose this picture, because it was the first picture I found that was descent and there was no one else in the photo with me. Most will probably wonder why I wouldn't have a better photo of myself, since I am a photographer. The answer is because I am always behind the camera and not in front of it. I really don't remember much about this photo, but I think that my daughter Emma came in to take a picture through the window of our backyard and while she was there she snapped this photo of me. I was pretty amazed because the camera was set to manual mode, but the picture is in focus, has the correct lighting and I'm smiling.

My goal for my blog will be to inform everyone of where and what I have taken pictures (and/or videos) of. I have three extremely busy and involved girls in the Orland Park schools, so I am often somewhere taking pictures. I want people to be able to come and view the videos I take for free. Sometimes one or more of your children, grandchildren, etc. might be in the videos or pictures and I think it would be great for you to be able see pictures and videos of them that you can share with your friends and family.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to hire me to take pictures for your event. I love to take pictures of anyone or anything and there are multiple ways for me to be reimbursed for my time. I especially would like to help organizations with their fundraising attempts. You can hire me for an hourly rate to take pictures and then sell the pictures for a profit. If you would like more information on this please contact me. You can contact me through my contact tab in the menu at the top right of any page on my website, doreymoto.com.

I would also like to extend a thank you to POSA (Palos Orland Swim Association) for letting me hone my skills as their team photographer. I have gotten such a great response from so many about my pictures. I specialize in taking pictures of action/motion photography and this is why I chose the name DoreyMoto.com for my website. The "Moto" part stands for Motion and Dorey is my last name. I can take other types of pictures also, so by all means check out the samples of my other pictures under the "Galleries" tab, to get an appreciation of all the other stuff. I just started this site on January 1, 2014, so check back often for updates. Who knows you may just find a great picture of you on my site.
