About Me

     I have been a part of the photography world for 40 years.   I attended ACES Educational Center for the Arts in New Haven, CT while finishing my senior year in high school.   It was my pleasure to learn from Tim Feresten both in class and in his private workshops.   I've worked in many areas of photography including photojournalism, sales, lab processing and retail management.   

    Through the years, wherever I've worked, I always tried to be as helpful as possible.  For me, a customer deserves as much assistance as can be provided.  

     Why do I have this site?   

  • This site is not a profit making endeavor.  This is my hobby, not a business.   I buy cameras, repair them if necessary and able, use them, and eventually sell them casually to start the process again with more cameras.   Almost everything I own I am interested in trading.    

  • I enjoy repairing and cleaning cameras. 

  • I enjoy teaching photography.

  • I am disabled and seriously limited in what I can physically do, but I enjoy being a part of the photography world. 

  • I have always enjoyed film photography.  I strongly believe it is the only way to learn and master the art.  I see too many items being sold today that are non-functional and/or misrepresented by private owners and businesses  I hope to make a small dent in the number of lemons circulating the used market.

  •  I  like to show my work.  I prefer traditional showings but this website allows me to show work without the physical demands of a gallery show.   

  • This site also enables me to share knowledge which I would otherwise have no means to share.  In time, I hope to have a substantial set of instructional guides available for viewing.  

     Please enjoy the site.  If you need an item from my lists, contact me.  If you have questions about a product, a general photography question or need assistance, contact me.
