Been a while.......

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 30, 2015, 8:33 PM

....since I made a journal entry.

House caught fire while at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2014.  I did have a raid mirror setup, but both drives where subjected to serious heat.  I haven't taken them in to a data recovery service yet, but I did get an estimate of $5,000.  I don't have that kind of money.  So, for the time being, all photos before AWA 2014 can be considered lost.  I do have some saved in stash, and will be uploading those.

I have a new computer now.  I have also gotten a lot better at processing photos.

Eddie of Pappa-Not-Zi has asked me to be part of his team at Omni Expo.  Eddie has been chosen to be the head photographer.

Lastly, I would like to recommend NBC "Hannibal."  It is much better than "The Walking Dead" IMO and rivals "Game Of Thrones" for quality.  I think I "GOT" is still my favorite show, but "Hannibal" is a close second.

I am the photographer. It is OK to criticize the photography. It is NOT OK to criticize the models.

My X-Box gamer tag is "Camera Mike."

I'm a lot like me, only more so.

I'm really not as serious as I look.

Shots before Anime Supercon 2007 (I think it was in November) were taken with a Nikon Coolpix 995. From November 2007 to December 2011 all shots were taken with a Canon EOS 40D. In December, my EOS 40 exploded, wiping out a small African village. I was forced to use a Nikon Coolpix S9100. It is a good consumer grade camera. Then I bought a Canon Rebel T3 in January 2012. It's a better consumer camera. Now I have a Canon EOS 60D.

I only refuse to take a stranger's picture under two circumstances:

1- I'm almost out, or out of memory.

2- You make a bad first impression. <- This has only happened 4 times. Two of the times involved alcohol.

I don't believe the term "comic book" is a valid term for what we generally refer to as "comic books." The illustrated stories are, with few exceptions, not primarily stories of comedy. Therefore, I use the term "manga" when refering to illustrated fiction, since the Japanese term means... >.< "whimsical pictures."

Some days I can't win.

My current rules for Deviant Art:

Since Deviant Art changed their tagging format, and I don't seem to be motivated to update regularly, there are no rules for me.

My Convention Schedule for the future:


Animate! Miami



Khaotic Kon

Omni Expo


Apex Anime

Florida Supercon


Anime Festival Orlando


Anime Weekend Atlanta


Holiday Matsuri

Anime South (maybe)

Hope all is well with you, and you got good shots from Dragon Con. If I may ask, is there any thoughts on the opening up of dragon con group? I rather told a lot of people to look for their photos on the group. :)

Believe it or not, two birthday muro drawing copies I made, of chibi Haruhi Suzumiya and Mikuru Asahina wishing you one, so, wishes 'n' luck!
