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) , I now shoot with two Fuji X-E2 bodies.
(until the X-E3 comes along, anyway)

* 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

And
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.

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.
