A Stream of Consciousness

Recent Portrait Work

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any portrait work so here are some recent images made using a mix of Fujifilm X-T3 and Olympus OM-D E-M1 cameras, in studio and on location.  

Is a Camera a Tool You Use or an Instrument You Play?

We’re constantly being told that photography should not be about the gear but instead should be all about the image. It doesn’t matter what gear you use, a great photographer will create an amazing image no matter what camera she uses to expose the scene and capture it on sensor
