At about the age of eleven, Richard Pardon was given a film camera by his grandfather in Dorset, U.K., who also taught him to develop his own film. Turning professional about a year ago, Pardon has realized a lifelong dream. “For me, it’s more than a job or a career. It’s like a lifestyle or a passion,” he says. He credits no two days being the same as making photography a rewarding career.
Although his grandfather gave him his start with film, Pardon has learned everything about digital photography by teaching himself. With books and DVDs, a trial-and-error approach has helped him not only develop his technical knowledge, but his own photographic style. He credits his autodidacticism with enabling him to work in different areas of photography, including portraiture, automotive, landscape, and stock work. The road hasn’t been easy, but the work is worth it, he feels.
Damien Lovegrove has a great post on his blog, ProPhotoNut entitled “Speedlight kit overview and preparation.” He posts two drool-worthy shots of all his PocketWizard gear, which he’s handily labeled to avoid any unnecessary switching.
A shooter of both Nikon and Canon, Lovegrove discusses his use of the AC3, the FlexTT5 and the MiniTT1 in conjunction with flash gear from the two camera manufacturers. He breaks down the kits into their respective compatibilities, and explains why and how he uses each piece of gear.
A really informative post, with lots of tips other shooters will find useful, this one is not unique to the ProPhotoNut blog. Lovegrove also has some examples of his fine photography. Keep up the great work, Damien!
Photo District News has just published a list of their ten favorite photo accessories. At the top of the list is the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5. Dan Havlik writes, “these tiny devices are still our go-to radio slaves.” The brief write-up describes what you can do with this triggering combo, and we love his sign-off: “Never leave home without ‘em!”
Atlanta-based David Christensen had been into photography since he was a teenager, but it was while he worked as chief photographer at a junior college newspaper that he realized this was what he wanted to be. This was further reinforced when he attended a Georgia College Press Association banquet and heard guest speaker Dave LaBelle at the podium. LaBelle was a Pulitzer Prize nominee teaching at Western Kentucky University. This moment was the start of Christensen’s favorite type of photographic image.
New England native Mike Kelley was into photography in a big way, but one day something fortuitous happened. While at the University of Vermont, Kelley ran into Dave Schmidt, who is an employee of LPA, makers of PocketWizard. Schmidt is also a shooter in his own right, and was photographing for a local ski resort. He also happened to have a prototype of the PocketWizard MiniTT1® on top of his camera. Kelley noticed, and the two began a conversation.
“I just kept bugging him and bugging him and eventually he caved and gave me an internship at PocketWizard,” Kelley recalls, laughing. After graduating from the University of Vermont with a double major in Environmental Studies and Studio Art, Kelley moved to Lake Tahoe to try his hand at professional snowboarding. This didn’t transpire, but proved fortuitous in a different way professionally.
When summarizing his testing experience, Spirer writes, “What can I say about the FlexTT5/MiniTT1 combination that summarizes my experience? It just works.” Be sure to read the full review here. Thanks, Jeff!
