My Bio
I am the photographer. It is OK to criticize the photography. It is NOT OK to criticize the models.


My X-Box gamer tag is "Camera Mike."

I'm a lot like me, only more so.

I'm really not as serious as I look.

Shots before Anime Supercon 2007 (I think it was in November) were taken with a Nikon Coolpix 995. From November 2007 to December 2011 all shots were taken with a Canon EOS 40D. In December, my EOS 40 exploded, wiping out a small African village. I was forced to use a Nikon Coolpix S9100. It is a good consumer grade camera. Then I bought a Canon Rebel T3 in January 2012. It's a better consumer camera. Now I have a Canon EOS 60D.


I only refuse to take a stranger's picture under two circumstances:

1- I'm almost out, or out of memory.

2- You make a bad first impression. <- This has only happened 4 times. Two of the times involved alcohol.

I don't believe the term "comic book" is a valid term for what we generally refer to as "comic books." The illustrated stories are, with few exceptions, not primarily stories of comedy. Therefore, I use the term "manga" when refering to illustrated fiction, since the Japanese term means... >.< "whimsical pictures."

Some days I can't win.


My current rules for Deviant Art:

Since Deviant Art changed their tagging format, and I don't seem to be motivated to update regularly, there are no rules for me.

Been a while.......

Been a while.......

....since I made a journal entry. House caught fire while at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2014.  I did have a raid mirror setup, but both drives where subjected to serious heat.  I haven't taken them in to a data recovery service yet, but I did get an estimate of $5,000.  I don't have that kind of money.  So, for the time being, all photos before AWA 2014 can be considered lost.  I do have some saved in stash, and will be uploading those. I have a new computer now.  I have also gotten a lot better at processing photos. Eddie of Pappa-Not-Zi has asked me to be part of his team at Omni Expo.  Eddie has been chosen to be the head photographer.  http

Back from DragonCon 2014

I was on the 11th floor of the Marriott Marquis, first shoot of the day on Friday, at DragonCon, with one tripod, one umbrella, one flash, and one cosplayer. We were at the end of corridor, next to a window, and not blocking traffic or doors. A guy working for the con asked me to come over to talk with him.  He was polite and told me that no "professional setups" were allowed.  There had been complaints, previous years, about people charging for photos.  I said I never charge for photos (never at DragonCon and rarely other times.)  He said it still wasn't allowed. I shot the rest of the con without using any tripods in convention space.  I d
