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.

Nick's wedding - CONGRATULATIONS!

This wedding shot started out with a tragedy. My go-to lens, a Sigma 24-70 2.8, took a hard shot the night before I was to shoot Nick's nuptials. My friend John Leach saw it take the hit and the lens break in 1/2, leaving the mount on the camera and the rest of the lens on the floor.

After watching me destroy my favorite lens, John, in a princely, brave and generous moment, said "I've got a 28-70 2.8 Tokina; you can use mine." What a guy.

The wedding was on a riverboat. The ceremony, dinner and reception were great! The lighting possibilities were limited. I went to Walmart and got an 8X11 piece of fun-foam and made a poor man's whale-tail bounce card and had to shoot the whole thing with that on my SB-800 and a TTL cord. It worked; not as well as setting up room flashes with pocket wizards, but it worked. John's 28-70 2.8 Tokina pulled it off. Shots look as sharp as it gets.

Nick's wedding - Congratulations!
