However, in January 2023, as part of my planned retirement, I removed the shopping cart and image catalog from the website. Instead, I transformed the platform into a dedicated space for sharing information.
With 40 years of experience as a commercial artist, photographer, and professional educator in commercial photography, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge to share with you. I’ve authored numerous articles on photography and the ins and outs of running a successful studio business, which I am currently editing before publication.
My focus now revolves around working on several websites and graphic design projects. Additionally, I’m always engaged in a few photography art projects. My blog will showcase standalone photographs while I continue developing each project’s body of work.
My top 40 old and new favorites are displayed on the landing page. Images within a black frame were captured using film, answering the question, “Do you still use film for photography?” Yes—I embrace both film and digital formats.
If you share my passion for cameras, you’re in good company. My favorite digital models are in my shooting bags alongside classic large and medium-format film cameras. I strive to provide insights into all the gear I have used throughout my career and personal art endeavors.
In my studio is a Sinar Norma monorail for when I want to experience photography through vintage brass lenses. The only film format I never seem to shoot is 35mm, but I have my first SLR film camera, a Canon AE-1, and my second, a Nikon F3T, just waiting to be used again.
I’ve come full circle in many ways, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
