My photo

I take photographs all the time. I take the pictures, to freeze that indefinite period of time forever. I am a photographer and I love photography. I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Bass Harbor



A lighthouse can keep you from running aground.
Just like with life it can help you rethink your decisions and change course.
Because like the sailor, no one wants to become a shipwreck on the rocks.

New Think Tank Photo Bags!


Our friends at Think Tank Photo have just announced a new line of shoulder bags for DSLR and mirrorless systems.  The new Spectral shoulder bags feature a Fidlock clasp that enables one-handed access to gear and then locks automatically when closing the flap. An additional zippered closure gives peace of mind while traveling and can be tucked away when actively shooting. Constructed with durable yet stylish materials, the Spectral Shoulder Bag offers Think Tank quality and ingenuity at a reasonable price.  And don’t forget that when you use my URL you will receive free gear and free shipping with your order of all Think Tank gear, including the Spectrals.

NiSi Natural Night Filter



Last night I was at a location where I know the light pollution is really bad. And I just wanted to show what the NiSi Filters Natural Night Filter (NIP-100-NGT) is designed to do. That is, block the most common wavelengths of light pollution. I used the NiSi Filters USA V5 pro holder, with the Get Olympus E-M1 Mark II and M.Zuiko 7-14mm f/2.8 Pro lens. All carried out to my location in the THINK TANK PHOTO Shape shifter 17 V2.0 bag.

Strike Finder 2, is now in my bag!
