Who am I? I’m a project manager by day and I am a photographer, well, every chance I get. I have enjoyed this hobby of photography since I got my first Vivitar 110 camera when I was a kid. I didn’t get more serious about the hobby until my first Canon SLR that I pretty much took over from my father. When I outgrew the Canon I made the switch to Nikon gear and bought my first auto focus SLR.
When digital rolled around, I started out small with a point and shoot from Olympus. It was ok, but I loved my SLR and this little digital thing seemed like nothing but a toy. Once Nikon announced the D100, I bought it. It was all kinds of awesome and I used it for years. I upgraded to the D7000 and loved it too, but there was a lot of chatter about micro four thirds and how compact and portable they were. I took the plunge and bought my first Olympus. While I liked it, the EVF wasn’t the greatest and I still wasn’t convinced that this format was for me. I used it for fun and brought it along as a backup to my Nikon. Over time, I kept hearing more and more chatter about the Olympus OM-D E-M5. I decided to check it out at my local camera shop (yes, I still shop local when I can) and they had a used one. The cost savings buying used lured me into a purchase. After just a month or two of use, I knew this hit the sweet spot for me and I became hooked on Olympus. I had more fun with this camera than I recall having with any other. I now have a few Olympus bodies and an array of lenses and have never looked back.
I love gear, but above all else, I love making photos. I love the way a camera feels in my hand and the sound the shutter makes when you capture your image. I love everything about it and that is the purpose of this site. It's a platform for me to share my experiences, my favorite photo websites, favorite podcasts, tips and trips I learned along the way, etc. Aside from my love of camera bodies and lenses, I have an obsession with camera bags. Suffice to say I have more than a few, so expect to read about the ones I have and why I love them. I will also write reviews and even produce a few video reviews of my gear.
I don’t profess to know everything about photography, I’m just an enthusiast, not a professional. But, my hope is that sharing what I have learned from other photographers and through my own self discovery, you might find something of interest here.
Thanks for taking the time to read this far and I hope you enjoy the site.
