Whew! Starting out on my own freelancing is a big undertaking. We’ve crossed so many barriers to get here and I’m glad to report that we are finally “settled” in the San Francisco Bay Area! My only regret is that I didn’t come out here sooner. It is truly a magnificent place. I’ve lived a lot of different places and I’ve never called them home. This…this is our home.
Please be patient as I get our new site up and running. I have loads of new projects coming. Shipping our storage pods across country was a bit of a puzzle to put back together. But we’re here…we’re buying the equipment that we’ve spent years preparing for and I can’t wait to show you what we can do with it.
If you’ve never shot with a Carl Zeiss lens, I highly recommend it. We upgraded to a 35mm F2 and I cannot take it off my camera. It’s amazing. Lights? Who needs ’em with this fast of a lens. (Which is fortunate since one of my bulbs crashed to the ground and broke during a shoot at work before I left Chicago!)
Also on the horizon is a new Leash & Capture from Peak Designs. I’m thrilled because I carry my camera everywhere. Surprisingly, I want to do weird things like hike and climb mountains now that there is just so incredibly much to see…
And last, but certainly not least…we’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Rhino Carbon Slider!!! I love photography gear Kickstarters, what can I say.
I can say: I love you San Francisco. Every single part of you. You were worth the wait.
