Got interested in photography with the help of my mom at an early age with a Kodak Brownie Fiesta (127) and then with a Zeiss Ikonta C my dad gave me when I started high school, which I still use! My first SLR was a Yashica TL Electro, then various Pentaxes (M42 thread mount & K mounts). My additional medium format ventures include a Yashica D TLR and a Pentax 67. I finally dove into large format with a Burke & James Grover 8x10 monorail. I fly for a living and have a great time!
