Ask A Question


I can answer basic questions about using any camera, but I am very familiar with most of the Nikon FILM cameras up to the FP 5. I have some background in advertising and marketing so I know something about placement of the object or person that would be the main focus of the photo. I did quite a bit of in home family portrature when I had my own studio in the '80s and '90s. I also did some product and commercial photography. I took most of the marketing photos for my families hotels in The Bahamas over the last 20 years so I have some experience about what 'sells' in the travel/hospitality industry.

Experience in the area

Started photography in 1967, also worked as a newspaper printer in Molina, Oregon in 1975, I owned my own studio from 1982 to 1996 and sold my travel images as stock since then.
