Hold on to your butts.
I first picked up my mom's Pentax K1000 when I was a bright-eyed 11 year old jerk. I loaded black and white film into it every day after school and disappeared into the woods. All I've cared about since is visuals.
I'm mostly self taught + I studied design at the Art Institute. You can spot my wife and I plus our 4 daughters out in the rain discussing time travel theories.
