About me:

I am an active aspiring professional photographer and videographer. My favorite camera was my 4x5 Speed Graphic, until David Hughes introduced me to the Sigma Foveon world in 2004. I've been through the Sigma SD9, SD10, SD14, DP1, DP2, SD15 and SD1M. Though I absolutely loved the colors produced by the Sigma Foveon sensor, I acquired a Nikon D5000 in 2014 for everyday photogarphy. I progressed to the D5300 in 2016 and D5600 in 2018. And now I have retired all of my Sigma DSLRs, except for the SD9 that I retained for the special colors it always produced. My photographic world has also expanded in recent years, getting into the 360 photosphere world with a Nikon D7100 with Sigma 8mm Fisheye and Acratech pano head, plus the Ricoh Theta S for single shot 360s. More recently I acquired an FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate and fly a Mavic Air drone every chance I get. Photography is my life and I intend living it to the fullest. Note my favorite quote: "Life is either a daring adventure . . . or nothing!" Helen Keller
