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.

Why do I stand at 9th & Broadway to take pictures?

A lady came out of her restaurant and asked me "Why do you stand outside my restaurant and take pictures?" Well:
(1)  The predominant winds here are from West and South. If I stand at the SW corner, I can move one side or the other on the wall and get out of the wind (when it's cold), or get a breeze when it's hot.
(2)  I get off work in the afternoon, and in the SW I have the sun at my back, lighting people on the street.
(3)  There's an awning around the whole corner of the building that keeps me dry when it rains.
(4)  It's the busiest corner in town for pedestrian traffic.
(5)  Because that's where I've shot from since 1978.
(6)  John Dillinger robbed banks because "that's where the money is." I shoot there because that's where the people are.
