A little background information on the
administrator of this website

 

Traditional photographic equipment is gradually fading from memory and being replaced by digital electronic appliances that in some cases don't even resemble the precision instruments of the recent past.

This website will attempt to keep the ties to the old cameras we have known and loved and provide information on their maintenance and repair.

For over fifty years I have devoted myself to traditional photography starting out as a kid of 14 with my Aires Viscount 35mm; working my way up to a career in retail sales at top camera stores in New York City. As a sales and marketing representative, I have experienced the photographic industry in its prime with renowned photographic firms including Linhof, Sinar, Rolleiflex, Ricoh, Fujinon, Elmo, Ilford and Agfa.

As a photographer, i worked professionally in the field of photojournalism, nature, landscape and glamour photography.

For a number of years I attended and promoted photographic equipment camera shows and swap meets meeting thousands of my fellow photo equipment enthusiasts from all over the U.S. and internationally. Some of you have been regular clients for years.

My expertise covers most photographic equipment including large and medium format, 35mm rangefinder and SLR cameras, vintage lenses, still and movie projection equipment, binoculars and more.

I am available on a consultant basis and by appointment (for a fee) -- can provide information and advice on complex equipment questions or issues.

Hopefully you will find this website to be both interesting and informative.
