Hello Photographers!
Experienced Photographer for hire.

Thanks for your interest. I have been a photographer for more than 35 years. New for 2016 was the addition of our Phantom 4 Drone camera. Now the sky is the limit. (Be sure to view our Aerial Sizzle Reel) Below is a list of the equipment that I currently own (I will try to keep this list updated as I move new equipment in); and software that I use daily. Although I don't think about renting my equipment, I could be talked into it.
