About me:

Been shooting for 30 years. Everything from MF to whatever fits in the hand, (including video). Ran an in-house commercial studio for 12 years. I currently do limited freelance work, (choosing those assignments that don't involve cheapskates). I prefer DSLRs, shoot MF film on occasion, and don't mind compacts. I don't care what you shoot with, so long as you have appreciation for shooting.

    Because? (Enlighten me).

  • Have to agree, being on the net since it's inception (and in my experience), there has been a sharp rise of trolls and nasty comments in just the last five years alone. I have left several forums...

  • Commented on CES 2014: Canon Stand Report article

    It's not rocket science. There is a flood of new, young buyers whom view the camera very differently, and thus needs of the market has changed.

    In all my years of shooting, I've learned that it's...
