Leica Portrait Photographer

Me with a Leica Q. Photo by Giles.

I have been a photography aficionado since high school, when I owned an Olympus SLR and a couple of lenses. Film was never my thing. When digital came along, I found a renewed passion for photography. My first DSLR was a Canon Rebel, followed by a Canon 30D, a Canon 5D, and a Canon 6D. I got tired of carrying the weight of a full-sized DSLR and lenses, so I switched to mirrorless, starting with a Sony A7R, then a Sony A6000 and a Sony A7S. I started messing around with manual focus and vintage lenses which led to my discovery of Leica. After selling all of my gear, I bought a Leica M Typ 262 and two Summicrons: a 50mm and a 35mm. I have not looked back. I even worked professionally as a side business for a decade as LucasPix.

Much of my photography may be seen in my Journal entries. Currently I use a Leica M8 as my main camera and several contemporary and vintage lenses. Here are the major categories:
