What Camera Gear Do You Use?
A lot of people ask this question, but before I list my gear, I want to share with you this thought: good photos have a great deal more to do with who is behind the gear than the gear itself. The gear is a means to an end and while I do believe in using the best possible equipment, spending a lot of money does not mean you will take great photos just like having expensive cookware doesn't mean you will cook a tasty meal. It takes years of practice, learning to become a great photographer.

What is your workflow?
I sort the keepers from the tossers in Photo Mechanic, then color/density correct, crop, and convert from RAW to JPEG in Lightroom. Tweak in Photoshop if necessary. I use a few Photoshop actions, but I mostly use actions and Lightroom presets I developed to fit my style of shooting and processing. I am not big on Photoshop actions, Lightroom presets or heavy image processing. I prefer to let the photograph itself take center stage.
Who are some of your favorite vendors?
Are you available to speak at my club or event?
As my schedule allows, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with groups of photographers in a conference or seminar setting. I have spoken at large events like WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International), mid-sized conferences like the American Horse Publications annual conference, and also to college photography classes and local photography clubs.
