I know that I am extremely fortunate.  I am one of the lucky few that gets to say my career is my passion.  I don't have a job - I take pictures of life.  To me, there is nothing better. Along this path, I get many opportunities ... traveling, meeting wonderful people, making new friends.  And there is also the business side ... learning new tricks, getting new gear, etc.

This post will feature one of both.


First, I had the honor of being interviewed by a great camera company, Mamiya.  As life would have it, the Mamiya Blog contacted me a bit ago after seeing some images posted on my blog where I used the Mamiya rz67 camera.  Some time later I was interviewed by them.  Both being interviewed and seeing your comments in print is extremely surreal.  For me, it was a first time for both.

You can check out the full interview here ... and here is a screen shot:

As mentioned above, I also have the privilege of traveling.  This time, I got to go to Dallas, TX and photograph a beautiful Indian Wedding.  And while it was the coldest its been in Dallas in 14 years, good times were still had.  Coming from Philly in mid January means I am used to temps around 25F.  But for Dallas, thats not normal and it was big news.  You will be seeing the images from that wedding but I also snagged a bunch of shots with my trusty iPhone and the Shake It Photo app ... which i highly recommend getting.
