Description: The purpose of this gallery is to exhibit some of the images that I have available for stock use. I have much more than what is shown here, so please don't hesitate to ask if you don't see exactly what you're looking for.
I suppose I've always been interested in photography, but it wasn't until 1983 that I became interested enough such that I began to acquire photo equipment so I could capture the images I saw in my head, but wasn't able to get with the gear I had. By the mid-1980s I began shooting for stock, and also about this same time I became interested in motorsports photography. Not too long after, I began to freelance, with motorsports as my specialty. Eventually, I got to the point where, if it went fast, I was out there taking pics of it. Hence my fondness for airshows, among other things. I freelanced throughout the 1980s and 1990s, also writing articles that my photos would accompany. Much of my work was published in _California Sports Car_ magazine, and even though I've never owned a view camera, I managed to pull off an article on Graflex cameras for _View Camera_ magazine.
By the late 1980s, I began writing a book intended as a price guide and information reference for "modern" cameras. That is, those that people still bought to use, and not to collect. The book went through an iteration of titles and six editions. It was a favorite among camera dealers and received considerable critical acclaim. The last edition was called _McBroom's Camera Bluebook_, published in 2000. This was also when digital cameras really began to take off and the market was changing radically. I could see the writing on the wall, so I decided that number 6 would be the last edition. However, if you should run across a copy of the 6th edition of my book, I think you will find the prices on much of the gear to still be close to what it is selling for now. Plus the information I collected on the hundreds of cameras included is still of value to the person interested in collecting the modern classics.
