As a teen I was given a beat up all manual Zenit Russian 35mm camera. I carried that camera everywhere, and learned manual exposure control in all kinds of lighting and weather... I took Photo classes in high school and learned dark room processing... since then I have upgraded both camera and darkroom function to the digital realm.
Fully equipped with Canon full frame and L lenses, studio lightning and strobes
My images have been used around the world in a variety of publications, on the news, in print and on the web
