Right now at age 19, I own Diode Dynamics, LLC, an online automotive parts business.

My plans are to graduate Truman State, where I am now, with a double in business and economics, and either go to law school or jump in the business world.

I am retired now. I had twenty-eight years in law enforcement. During that time I was an Evidence Technician, a Traffic Homicide Detective, and a Hostage Negotiator. I took crime scene photographs while doing these jobs. Now I like to shoot things that are still living.

I'm an engineer working on Army aviation trainers, Apaches to be precise.

Do they use three-axis, Level D sims for the Apache?

I'm in IT in the medical field (Hospital). I pretty much do it all though (phone networks, IT calls, repairs, database, server maint., web design and maintenance, etc.) as we are only a 6 person department so we're spread pretty thin.

So you were like the guys on CSI that take tons of photos. I always catch myself checking out their cameras and flashes! lol. I guess in CSI Vegas they primarily shoot Canon, and CSI NY primarily shoots Nikon. I guess if someone watches CSI Miami we can see who get's 2 out of 3!

I've been a professional photographer for twenty years now. Started doing most of my work for textbook publishers. I've now done quite a variety of different work. When we had a creative book here my ad said "Anything but wars and weddings." I now do primarily architecture and corporate with some editorial work thrown in.

I didn't notice many working photographers had responded... Are they rare here?

I was a Photojournalist... until the paper decided they didnt need the newest hired guy on staff anymore.. Damn budget cuts. :(

So now I'm back to freelancing.


One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.

Seriously! I'm working in electrical construction (on the management side of it) and sometimes I swear it's like a day care for adults! It's amazing some of these guys can even dress themselves in the morning!

Ha Ha, CSI on television is nothing like real life. My first camera was an old Graflex Camera. It used 2 1/4" film and flash bulbs. Every setting was totally was manual. We improved a lot over the years, but don't believe eveything that you see on television.
