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 (WAY sharper & MUCH better than my old Nikon gear) , I now shoot with two Fuji X-E2 bodies and the NEW X-T2 from Sherry on my birthday!

* Fujinon XF10-24 f/3.5-4.8 R (SHARP across the range!)
Fujinon XF18-55 f/2.8-4.0 R (SHARP across the range!)
* Fujinon XF60 f/2.4 (SHARP across the range!)
* Fujinon XF55-200 f/3.5-4.8 R (Uber SHARP across the range!)

Flash stuff:
* 6 Yongnuo 560-IV with commander/transmitter.
* 6 Nikon SB-25/26/28s (old, manual, reliable, nice),
* (6) Pocket Wizard and (6) Yongnuo RF-603 radio flash triggers

tons of stands, umbrellas, soft-boxes, brolly boxes, mounts, hot & cold shoes (and some lukewarm ones), cords, spigots, clamps, pocket wizard triggers, reflectors, scrims, backdrops, adapters, snoots, grids, batteries , chargers, bags & cases, gewgaws, clamps, 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 36" of most photos seen here are available on high quality paper or mounted board for framing.

The big day. Run & gun engagement photos around town

I was asked to shoot some engagement photos for this lovely couple. Ooooooops, being mostly an opportunist/street shooter, I called a friend (and great wedding/portrait photog along with his wife Mallory), Brian Taulbee, and he had some good advice on where & what to shoot. THANKS Brian!

My friend John Leach volunteered to co-shoot (and make sure we got something worthy of these folks' time), so he and I walked around downtown Columbia shooting engagement photos for this very patient couple. We each carried a camera, a mono-pod/light stand with a mounted flash and umbrella, and radio triggers. When one of us was shooting, the other was the voice-activated light stand. This is a great way to get a variety of looks from 2 perspectives. It is also a simple lighting method that is HARD to get right, and I need a lot more practice to pull it off well. Some of John Leach's excellent results are here: John's shots

It is also a way to cover my butt in case I didn't get anything good shooting in unfamiliar territory. THANKS, John.

Congratulations guys!
