A little history or background. I have had a love of the camera since I was a child. I fell in love with taking pictures by shooting at all the family functions and developed a passion for it at a very young age. I was the annoying little kid that was always flashing the camera in everyones face. At that time it was a Kodak instamatic 100 with the "flash cube" attached, anyone remember those? I would often run out of flash cubes before I ran out of film. Yes we had to put film in the cameras back then, not memory cards.
I never lost my passion for photography throughout my youth upgrading my equipment periodically. It wasn't until I joined the Navy that I finally purchased my first 35mm camera, it was at the PX or (post exchange), that's the store for the military personnel on base to make purchases. It was the first thing I did when I arrived at my first duty base. I was having withdrawals from spending three months in "boot camp" without a camera and unable to shoot. The camera was a Mamiya Sekor that I paid $99 for. I took it with me to many different countries while serving in the Navy. It even made a trip to the top of Mt. Fuji in Japan. That was in 1970 and I still have it.
Skipping ahead just a bit. Today I have and use advanced camera and lighting equipment combined with years of experience and to get you the best results.
