Meet Anthony and Michelle
Okay, I want you to be honest with me for a second and answer this question:
Have you ever named an inanimate object?
Car? Motorcycle? Something weirder than that?
I love my cameras very much, and if you've ever seen me handle them before, during and after a session, you would know what I mean.
Throughout my life, I've purchased 6 still cameras and 1 video camera and each of them are significant to me for one reason or another. Since becoming a professional photographer, I've purchased two Nikons, and they have held down the fort for the past 5 years.
...and since they mean the world to me, yes, I named them!
I’d like to introduce you to Michelle (D4, on the left) and Anthony (D5, on the right). They're brother/sister and besties at the same time, :)
I am unbelievably grateful and fortunate to create a business around my art while simultaneously helping clients achieve their goals with such amazing, high-end equipment.
Regardless of bad lighting, bad location, or whatever crappy condition that exists, Michelle and Anthony have come through for me on every occasion, because technical concerns are not a concern with these cameras, so the vision that my clients have for their image content always comes to life.
Needless to say, they make me very happy, :)
Although I’ve gotten plenty of shit from friends and clients alike for naming them and talking about them as if they were children, I respond to everyone who busts my chops like this:
