The blog

After 13 years as a local news staff photographer, with a healthy little freelance business on the side, I have now launched into the world of the full-time freelancer. This blog will document the highs and lows of my photographic way of life as I talk about work, cameras, lunch, and anything else that I encounter along the way to capturing that ‘decisive moment’. Watch out for posts on my personal projects as well,with pinhole cameras, photograms, infrared photography, and the wonders of 1950’s era cameras.
