First and foremost, don't use my images anywhere without asking me first, PERIOD.
All of my photographs are All Rights Reserved.
Just because I post my photographs online, no matter where I post them, doesn't mean you or anyone else can use them or repost them - FOR ANY PURPOSE - unless you ask me first. That privilege stays with me.
If you want to argue with me about Fair Use Doctrine in copyright law, fine, but do it BEFORE you appropriate my images.
If misappropriation of my imagery continues, I will be forced to make my entire Flickr account Friends-only, and that would be a shame.
Got it? Good. Let's move on...
I've had photography as a hobby since high school (1976), as has my wife, Saint_Jude. In 2005 we bought a somewhat mediocre (but affordable) digital camera, the Olympus C-740.
Since we were both accustomed to film, finally getting to play with digital was an eye-opening experience.
Since then, we've both bought dSLRs, which have removed a lot of the limitations imposed by the smaller sensor and lens of the P&S.
I will photograph anything that looks interesting, although I am still getting comfortable with portraiture.
I think I'm completely nuts, but others seem to tolerate me so well that I am constantly astonished at how many good and dear friends I have been gifted with.
I'm a founding member of the Denver Mad Scientists Club (responsible for The Critter Crunch, the original fighting robots competition started in 1986) and I'm active in a variety of other subcultures, social groups and informal "clubs".
During my working life, I have been: a dishwasher, a cook, an AV equipment repairman, a computer & telecommunications technician for the Air Force; a locksmith, a burglar alarm installer, a gun & sporting goods salesman, a camera salesman, an automotive repossessor (ugh), an environmental test technician for a planetary exploration spacecraft program, a professional mad scientist, a computer systems integrator, electronics engineering technician, and most recently, a manufacturing engineer.
Some of my many interests include extopianism, dangerous electronics, hacking the human machine, hedonism of all sorts, and irresponsible engineering disguised as performance art.
I have been a part of the Colorado gothic, underground music, science fiction fandom, and BDSM, & fetish communities, although in recent years I've become more interested in spending my time and money on hearth and home and hobbies. I'm a nerd, a polymathwannabe, and an atheist.
I live in Denver, Colorado with my partner Judy, and our cats Ravyn & Merlyn. I currently make my living as a "security engineer" (read: glorified software tester).
