I first picked up my fathers Minolta SRT 101 in 1998 and was fascinated by how it worked. It was intoxicating. The way the film advance felt as the sprockets pulled the film into the take up spool, the velvety-smooth motion of the 50mm F0.95 ‘s focus ring as it glided around the lens barrel, and the old leather smell of its hard shell cover all are embedded in my sense memory to this day.
That camera is where it all started for me. I started learning photography at the dawn of the digital era and could always be found with some second hand camera photographing anything and everything. Things haven’t changed all that much. Today I’m a commercial photographer who has chosen to specialize in People, Products, and Places.
