Hasselblad Shooting Rolleiflex

Go Hasselblad

To all my photographer buddies. I know many of you have asked me about my decision to go with Hasselblad as my camera of choice. Here is an opportunity for you to get into Hasselblad yourself at a huge savings. Hasselblad has certified pre-owned cameras with a warranty at an additional 20% discount right now. Take a look, it is really a move up! Here is the link to what is available, take a look!

I also just found out that if you go through my very good friend Bob Wilde from Samy’s Camera there is no CA Sales Tax through next week. Bob is the Pro rep from Samy’s Camera. You can reach him at



Emily Made My Day!

Emily Made My Day!

Thank You Emily Hayworth for being so gorgeous and fun in front of my camera at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. Actually a borrowed camera, a Phase One IQ250 medium format 50 mpx digital system. It really does shoot beautifully! So Thanks to Morgan Acaldo from Phase One for handing over $40,000 or $50,000 of camera and lens on the spur of the moment! Great camera system, but Emily made my day!


Walk Around With Leica S2 And Nipple Alert!

Walk Around With Leica S2 And Nipple Alert!

A wonderful sculpture in front of the Elena Bulatova Gallery in Palm Springs. I did a walk of street photography yesterday with a Leica S2 Medium Format digital camera. For you photography folks out there, it is a 37.5 megapixel camera with the expected optics of Leica lenses. Certainly the most expensive camera I have ever used for street photography coming in at almost $30,000. Part of my week at the Palm Springs Photo Festival.

Nipple alert even on a sculpture, I only felt safe putting a censored version of this photograph on Facebook. Unfortunate because it really is a integral part of this art.
