Imagine the dismay of sending your child on a trip to Washington, DC and New York in 7th grade with six rolls of film, and he returns with nine. That child was me in the year 2000. Knowing full well that I inherited that shutterbug gene from my Dad, my parents paid to process all nine rolls of film, with not Kroger standard processing, but Kodak Picture Processing!
While in school, I was “that guy” with the camera, capturing events as I saw them. Slowly but surely, I went from shooting in full automatic to getting sharp images in some of the most difficult ambient lighting conditions and operational constraints.
2018 was a pivotal year for me. At the persuasion of a friend, I picked up a drone. The anticipation of receiving it was unlike the anticipation of anything else. Think about what goes behind a “great” photo … is perspective one of the elements? If you could get off the ground, a bit higher than the tallest tree in the world, what would you want to see?
While my hours are typically devoted to serving nonprofits, I am taking clients on a limited basis. In the meantime, enjoy my work with a local church, Happy Tails Pet Therapy (donate), and Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta (donate).
Where did the name Turboprop Photography come from?
The name is a hat tip to a different type of airplane that existed long before quadcopters came into being. Those who know me well know which airplane. 😉
If you enjoy my work, I encourage you to make a gift of support in any amount to the organizations I support. Alternately, you can buy me a coffee, knowing full well that your contributions will enable me to do more and do better.
