I have been involved in photography since the 1970’s, beginning with a Kodak camera, possibly a Starflash or a Starmite. The camera used 126 film, and used single-use flashbulbs. I still have two rolls of film shot with it, and my parents have more still.
I shoot many styles, and am equipped to handle most types of photography.
I primarily shoot on the Pentax K-1 dSLR. This is a full-frame 36MP camera body. This camera gives me fantastic flexibility, and a range of lenses dating from brand new back to the 1950’s.
I can also shoot on several different film cameras. I can shoot on 35mm film with a Pentax Z-1p SLR, which has full lens interchangeability with my K-1. Due to the lens-compatibility, I can shoot anything on either 35mm film or digital.
I can also shoot 35mm film on a Canon Pellix QL, which was among the first cameras with TTL (Through The Lens) light metering. My selection of lenses for this camera is limited.
I can also shoot medium-format using a Super Ricohflex 6×6 medium-format TLR, or a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, if customers have a need or desire for something that is truly “retro.”
I also have speciality gear for shooting enormous panoramas and doing “shift” or “tilt” photography.
I am equipped with continuous and speedlight-based gear to suit most any situations. I am also comfortable working with natural lighting. Softboxes, umbrellas, backdrops, tripods and cameras are all portable, so I can come to you. With up to three continuous and six speedlight-based light sources, I have a lot of room for creativity.
I do not have my own studio space, but I have several professional studio spaces I can rent. Due to my setup being entirely portable, coming to your home or office, or meeting you at a location you have permission to use, are all possibilities.
