A photo and lighting place! Here I'll post some stuff I've shot in the process of learning.

Since my move to Fujifilm equipment, I now shoot with two Fuji X-E2s.
(until the X-PRO2 comes along, anyway)

* Fujinon XF18-55 f/2.8-4.0 R (SHARP across the range!)
* Fujinon XF55-200 f/3.5-4.8 R (Uber SHARP across the range!)
* Fujinon XF10-24 f/3.5-4.8 R (SHARP across the range!)


Flash stuff:
* 6 Nikon SB-25/26/28s (old, manual, reliable, nice),
* 6 ancient Sunpak 611 hammerhead flashes (really old, manual, reliable, nice) with big SLA battery packs for studio, tabletop macro and portraits
. (GN=168 = lotsa light for a $50 flash).
* (6) Pocket Wizard and (6) Yongnuo RF-603 radio flash triggers

And
tons of stands, umbrellas, soft-boxes, brolly boxes, mounts, hot & cold shoes (and some lukewarm), cords, pocket wizard triggers, reflectors, scrims, backdrops, adapters, snoots, grids, batteries , chargers, bags & cases, gewgaws, gimcracks, whatchamacallits, doohickeys, thingamajigs, whatnots, widgets, et cetera.

I love to shoot out on the street, but the technical aspects of photography/lighting are fascinating - and sometimes vexing. I am fortunate to shoot with motivated and inquisitive photographers.


I am available for portraits, senior photos & product photography.

Commercially printed copies (up to 24" x 30" of most photos seen here are available on high quality paper for framing.

Mr. Nair - 5 years on - meeting the Fujinon 55-200; this is a great lens!

In 2010, this fellow was walking down the street with an umbrella - so I shot a quick pic. He was here to bring his daughter from India to start college. Yesterday, 5 years later, I was doing my street-shooter stuff and he walked up and said "my family loves that picture you took of me."

Today, his daughter is graduating at THE University of Missouri and he came to celebrate. This time, I put him up against the wall and shot him again! Sometimes, people get angry when I takes their picture, and it's easy to forget that others may treasure these photos for what they are - reminders of their existence.

RIP Sean; Mr. Remainder - A life on the street with diabetes

Update: Sean died a couple of weeks after these shots from complications  of diabetes. One never gets to really know many of the :street people," but there's a hole in the atmosphere when they go.

Diabetes care is hard enough, but it gets a little trickier when you live on the street. He has four weeks until they can remove the stitches where all his toes were amputated because of poor circulation resulting from diabetes.
