Hey Gang….first off, many thanks for stopping by my blog. If you are a regular reader, you know my blog is a bit like the inside of my brain-think of a bunch of shelves cluttered with lots of bits and pieces, curios, if you will, collected during 30 years of picture making. It is personal, a bit eclectic, and hopefully informative. Because I do the occasional assignment for outfits like Nikon, Profoto, and Manfrotto, they and others might loan me gear to mess with, explode, push the boundaries with, or just outright break. These relationships have grown over time. I bought my first Nikon camera in 1973. And I’m still buying their cameras. I have recently been named a Nikon Ambassador, and I am very proud and honored to join this very special team of photographers. http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-And-Explore/Nikon-Ambassadors/index.page.
Shopping. I do almost all my camera business with Adorama. The deals available to me are available to everybody. I am happy to speak well of the store and recommend them as they have helped me preserve the Faces of Ground Zero Giant Polaroid Collection over the years, which has been a formidable but very important commitment.
Note, I am not a reviewer of products. I discuss the equipment I use because I do actually use it, and depend on it in the field. I am not a third party entity giving an overview, or a controlled, clinical analysis. I use stuff that works for me and helps me survive a job and achieve success in the field. I do, on a regular basis, share information and of course, hope that the information, accounts, rants, raves and general musing presented here in the blog might be helpful and enjoyable for all.
