I did a shoot recently with this beautiful boy and his parents.  I had a fantastic time with them in an absolutely beautiful setting.

Monday I spent the day wandering around downtown Chicago. It’s so gorgeous at night. Wow.

I use Canon gear.

There are, obviously, things I want to get to enhance my bag.  I definitely need a 50mm lens for the big camera.  I would also like a great macro lens.  To be honest I’m still figuring out what I really need.  Less is always better, in most things, if you ask me.  I try for an economy of equipment.  Meaning I want interchangeable lenses as much as possible and my stuff to be as portable as possible.

There it is… the stuff.  Not tons of it, but I don’t think you need loads.  Really what’s necessary to get that perfect shot is a love of form and light, joy in doing the work, and a perspective that’s yours and yours alone.

Can you tell I love what I do?
