From Gavin's Facebook page:
I find myself in the uncomfortable position of being caught in a world where everyone wants violence and vengeance against someone, but I want it against nobody.
Gavin doesn't want to do violence against anyone because he's a pusscake. Aged FEMA ladies and elderly national park volunteers are Gavin's speed.

We can all recall the countless times he claimed the right to use his borrowed mouse gun to defend himself from the cops. He's frequently said he and his like thinking poots have the right to kill blue isis agents (read: cops) the moment they violate his rights, as he understood them. But, of course little Gavvy never did any such thing. When faced with cops patting him down, throwing him out of buildings or even arresting him he simply threw tantrums.

And when it got to be too much for the all-talk patriot, Gavin Seim, he just ran to Mexico.

Because he is scared and inadequate thus falsely believing a gun makes him more than he is.

Gavin's not a "shooter" or any sort of gun enthusiast any more than he's legal expert or photographer. He's simply tried to co-op the gun rights community as a part of his pathological anti-authoritiarianism.

Being the witless, socially imbecilic, home schooled twit he is he presented himself before the Washington state gun rights community waving a .25 caliber Beretta hand gun (which he probably borrowed), trying to sell dubious story that the badly under powered and obsolete mouse gun was his self-defense pistol. The little outdated pop-up barrel Beretta has been marketed since the 1950's as a gun for the arthritic grandma who can't rack the slide or handle recoil.

It's like showing up at classic car show with 1980 Yugo claiming you're the cock of the walk. Ya' gotta' figure the audience looked at Gavvy and wondered exactly what sort of wannabe puss cake he was.

I googled "beauty dish". It is some type of photography lighting equipment.

She’s also pushed over to the right of the frame. How hard can it be to frame halfway decently?

He claims it's alfalfa (which it could be, since alfalfa does have purple flowers), but why is he ruining someone's alfalfa field by trampling it down with his equipment?

For clarification, a beauty dish is a modifier that is attached to a light source. It changes what could otherwise be a harsher quality light into something a little softer and more flattering while still creating shadows for dimension.

It's interesting that he comments on the light being harsh as he's probably referring to the battery powered strobe that he used and not the natural light that exists in the scene as there's no evidence that the existing light was harsh at all.

In terms of the pose, I can't get past what's happening with her left arm, it just seems really odd to me.

Despite his thinking that he's quite talented in photography, so far based on what I've seen, he's just another guy with a camera, imo.

I've largely stayed out of this discussion because I don't want to descend into appearance shaming (though boy am I tempted at times!) However, I just realized that there is a sort of "uncanny valley" effect in his photographs of his favorite model, perhaps due to clumsy digital post-processing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncanny_valley
In aesthetics, the uncanny valley is a hypothesized relationship between the degree of an object's resemblance to a human being and the emotional response to such an object. The concept of the uncanny valley suggests humanoid objects which appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings elicit uncanny, or strangely familiar, feelings of eeriness and revulsion in observers.[2] Valley denotes a dip in the human observer's affinity for the replica, a relation that otherwise increases with the replica's human likeness.[3]

There's often a halo effect in these photos, which makes it look like her overly bright image was snipped into an overly dark background in a way that looks weird and unnatural with a subtle brightness separating them. And I'm never sure why he mentions the background since it's either so dark or blurred or hidden it's irrelevant . . . like the purple flowers that are barely distinguishable here.

The 'uncanny valley' is an interesting concept. First I've heard of this.

'Light was harsh but handles it with a beauty dish'- I can't decide if this sounds more like Gollum or the guy in Silence of the Lambs.

Sondra doesn't ever appear to look comfortable or natural in the photos Gavin takes. In her own candid selfies she looks natural and, imo, a reasonably attractive woman. But his photos make her look stiff and awkward, often in poses that are not natural, attractive. or flattering. The end result is often unattractive and weird, and often making her body parts appear disproportionate.

Gav relies too much on gadgets and computer touch-ups as opposed to actual skill in taking photos. I don't by any stretch of the imagination consider myself to be any kind of photographer. I have far less equipment than Gavin appears to posses and probably far fewer lenses. But I would bet any of my photos, without any editing whatsoever, are better than anything he's ever done with his mass of gadgets, lenses, lighting equipment, and Photoshop, er, enhancement.

About as accurate as hash tagging 'agriculture' or 'sexy'. This seems to be a pretty common IG technique to build followers- hashtag anything and everything to get into other people's feeds and play the odds that a certain percentage will hit the follow button. FWIW, if you can build a large enough IG following you can turn it into an income source.
