I'm interested in all types of photography. I shoot events for several non-profit groups I'm a member of. I shoot photo essays for several print magazines. And I shoot for hire. If you have a shoot of some kind you'd like me to consider, send me an email and let's talk.
In the last few of years, I've started shooting more photos of models and fashion. If you're a model with an interesting idea for a photo shoot, let me know. I try to do one TFP/TFCD shoot per month. Check out my Model Mayhem profile for more info.
For many years I shot 35mm film on a Canon A1 and later a Canon T90. Today I mostly shoot with a Canon 40D DSLR. I also shoot with my Nexus 4 camera phone for my phone camera stream, sort of a photo blog of life.
I haven't forgotten film, of course. In addition to my Canon T90, I shoot with a variety of vintage film cameras including my favorite, the Italian Bencini Comet S 127. One of my pastimes is renovating vintage cameras and shooting film with them. I've written a short tutorial on how I do this called: Buying, Repairing, and Using Vintage Cameras. I've also experimented with expired films, found films, cross processing, and other weird photo stuff.
I'm a founding member and frequent contributor to Camera-Wiki.org, a free online encyclopedia that is attempting to document all cameras and lenses, with a focus on vintage gear. I've become quite obsessed with the history of Vivitar and spend a lot of time collecting and using very old Vivitar lenses, particularly, the M42, T/T2, T-4, and TX mount Vivitar lenses. You can find the result of my work on the Camera-Wiki.org Vivitar page.
