Aside from software and security, my other passion is photography, you can see the best of my more recent work on my 500px page. My love of photography came from working as a photojournalist during my teen years for a small newspaper in East Tennessee. During the time I worked there, I came to understand the importance of visual media and the critical importance of freedoms granted to the press.
Most of my time behind a camera has been with 35mm film, though in recent years I am now exclusively digital. I used many cameras through the years, the Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 and Canon AE-1 Program being my favorite for all-manual work; the ever impressive Nikon N90s being my favorite automatic film camera. My current camera of choice is a Fujifilm X-T20, though often also use my iPhone’s exceptional camera.
Most of my work is outdoors with either natural light, or a single hot-shoe flash when absolutely required.
