About me:

I'm more an engineer than a photographer. I started shooting with a 110mm P&S and soon became 'the official photographer' where ever I went. People always liked my photos and I have a blast taking them. I upgraded to Digital in ~2000 and loved making custom photo books out of the images of my adventures. Somewhere around 2008 I upgraded to DSLR's and never looked back. I love the things I can do with flash units and enjoy portrait and event photography. Most of my shooting is rather informal, candid and more inclined to capturing real life expressions or emotions then posed, staged or otherwise 'fake' reenactments.

Sometimes I get paid, but I mostly do it for fun and the looks and excitement that my images bring others. I've thought of turning 'pro' but my images are not good enough and worry that adding 'work' will take all the fun out of something I love doing.

I almost always use a flash, I love the little YN622C radio units. I make regular use of AV mode with -1 EC and ETTL2. Most images are processed in Lightroom (MAC or PC) and sized for Facebook viewing.

All my 'work' shown here and elsewhere was done for free.
