I like photography. I've been shooting film ever since I could hold my fathers
Praktica PL3. I'm more of a gear/tech head than an artist, but I love what
I do. Check out my personal photo gallery and my professional photo gallery
or my blog

    "A gear/tech head maybe, but an eminently practical and honest one. Paul is one of the key factors that recently rekindled my love of photography, and he's definitely the biggest (and clearly the most expensive) influence on my choice of gear. Thanks!"

    "Paul is a man of his word. He was the only other fool to show-up for a photowalk in on a cold rainy night. Why? Because he said he would stop by. That's commitment."

    "I like to think that I know a lot about what is going on with my photography equipment. But just when I think I do, I find that Paul is more than one step ahead of me. :-)"

    "never met this person before, nor do I know him well. here's a guy who 'thinks outside of the box' and 'looks at the bigger picture' for self-effacing observation. "my photos' quality aren't that good". "there's more to a picture than its resolution", he answers. that made me felt optimistic, cause' no one spoke of me virtuously before. :)"
