Michael and I are both recovering camera gear addicts.  We also receive a great deal of equipment for review. We are always looking at what is the newest and coolest gear available so we can write about it here, not to mention for our own use. On occasion we’ll publish a video article like this so you can see what we are traveling with and what we like about the gear.  We made this video a few months ago and had it on the back burner as we had so many good articles to publish.  We’ll be a little more timely in the future.

Photography is my passion and has been for 45 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of pictures taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through Rockhopper Workshops and other projects as well as teaching at my Gallery in Indianapolis.
