I have gotten to shoot with Scott Kelby, Stacey Kane, and Mike Palmer.

Made friends with Vincent Versace and Matt Kloskowski, had (email) conversations with David Ziser, Joe Photo, Jason D. Moore, and people all over the world.

Almost every week a package arrives with some photographic doo-dad to be tested and reviewed.

As a photographer does it get any better?

And I have you to thank, because without you this blog would be nothing.

Please know that I will make every effort to make year two even better.

I will be celebrating the 4th with friends & family and will be shooting a wedding out of state this weekend so you will not hear from me again until next week.

Be happy, be safe.

and thank you, thank you, thank you......
