A hobbyist photographer who trained as a commercial shooter, managed a portrait studio for a bit and struck out on his own to attempt commercial projects in a small community for a few years. Started a family, bought a house and more camera and computing equipment and then came to realize that photography was just too damned difficult to deal with as a commercial venture.  So hobby it is.  A direct link to my blog is

About Us...

Camera Sling Strap designs inspired by the 1885 SPRINGFIELD TRAPDOOR CARBINE SLING (which has existed for over 100 years), have become more popular in recent years. When we set out to make the Ultimate Camera Sling Strap System, we challenged ourselves to surpass every aspect of existing camera slings on the market today. Along the way, we asked a lot of questions including:

How can we improve how a sling strap attaches to the camera and still have the tripod mount available?

  • How can we make it more secure and comfortable?
  • How can we utilize higher quality materials and still provide an affordable price?
  • How can we let the camera still can lay flat and same time use sling strap?
  • How can we make the sling strap ultimate in design and affordable on price?
  • How can we make people have the quick access to tripod same time use the camera sling?
  • How can we make camera sling more secure while using long telephoto lens?



Cream Ridge Winery
After you've checked out my gallery, check out their web site.  I'll be adding more photographs as the season progresses.  Next up in February they will be pruning the vines.  Also keep checking in for photographs of when the vines are heavy with grapes next Summer.  Below is the link to their web site.  Everyone at the winery is very approachable and friendly, so don't be bashful if you are a wine novice.

White Hill Mansion      
There was a house, a lady, some Hessians, and a river.

The Revolutionary War created massive devastation in the colonies.  Nowhere was this more evident than in New Jersey.  Robert Field, a local business man and patriot, headed the Committee of Correspondence in an attempt to gain representation in British Parliament.   In 1775 Robert drowned in the Delaware River under mysterious circumstances, leaving his young wife Mary to defend their home against British and then Hessian invasion.  

Over the next two hundred and thirty-seven years the Field family home housed entrepreneurs and a U.S Senator, as well as rum runners.  It was thrice abandoned and once used as a bordello.  For nearly seventy years it served the public as an upscale restaurant know as Glenk's White Hill Mansion Restaurant Bar and Grill, The Mansion and finally the White Hill Mansion Restaurant.
