    I have always had a camera with me from 110mm

    to 35 mm and eventually into a digital point and shoot. I never ever imagined I'd be at a point in my life (45 years) where I'd be called a professional photographer, but here I am! Wildlife, northern lights, flowers et. al. I now carry a case with about $8000 worth of picture...

    Lost My Mojo

    So, lately I've not been taking photographs of anything. I haven't taken my camera out of the house in weeks, and that's incredibly depressing to me. I have a gorgeous Canon 20D and it's missing me. When you lose your photography mojo, what do you guys do?

    I Love Photography!

    So I was out at my local park the other day about to shoot some nature photos and I received a call from a college "sales person" (admissions people) that at first wasn't too bad. I really just answered to be nice and to see if it was a number I should "forget" to answer (thought...
