What camera system do you use?

I use the new Sinar-Bavarian-photomaster. This camera is so cool. It has all kinds of dials, buttons and giz-mos, 72 megapixels, and it can take pictures in the dark. Actually what camera I use doesn't matter. They all do the same thing. No one asks artists what kind of brush or paint they use. What they do ask is, "How did you do that"? That, my friend is the magic of photography. Capturing what you see and letting others experience your vision and wonder. It can only be done if you know how to see the light and put that beauty on film. (yes, sometimes I still use film!)

How would you describe your skill level (Novice, Advanced Beginner, Competent, Proficient, Expert) ?

Professional, full-time, portrait photographer. National speaker/teacher of Photography and Photoshop.

What is your favorite photographic subject to shoot?

People, the human face. Nothing is more interesting. I conduct seminars throughout the year on sunset/beach portrait photography, Adobe Photoshop and demonstrate Topaz Labs software. Try Topaz today. It's a Photoshop or Elements plug-in. It will change the way your pictures look for the better. Try "Adjust".


I'm a professional portrait photographer based in W. Michigan since 1986 specializing in HS senior portraits, weddings, families and children. I'm also a pilot and love to shoot from above! www.adamsphoto.insta­
