How did you get your start in photography?
My first contact with photography was a long time ago when I was 14 or so. My dad had a Pentax still during the film days, and he taught me a bit about it and I started playing with it. I did a few photography courses but then faded away from it for a few years and came back to it after a few “normal” job experiences.
Which accomplishments are you most proud of?
That is a hard question. Photography can be weird sometimes. I feel that sometimes that one photo you are really stoked on is not necessarily the one the client is the most stoked on. I treasure some shots because of the technical side of it.
Which Custom SLR products do you use?
I’ve been using the Glide One Strap a lot. It’s really nice for me because sometimes I need to quickly change between shooting with a water housing and then go to shoot from land. The C-Loop allows me to quickly get the strap on and off the camera. I also use the Hand Strap on one of my cameras, the one I use to get the sketchy, close-to-the-water angles. It’s always nice to be safe. And it’s a situation that I would probably get a normal strap soaked.

How does using these products improve your photography and/or comfort? What difference can you feel?
The products are very well made and are really comfortable to use. They also have features that make my life easier in the field, and even more so when I’m doing jobs that are the “one man crew” type.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
I’m a big Spider Man fan, so maybe the same ones he has. It would also be useful for photography. I could use spider webs to hang flashes and remote cameras. It would be a lot nicer than carrying tripods around.
