I have been using Topaz Labs products for over 2 years and absolutely love the results. Topaz Labs DeNoise AI is by far the best I have tried for noise reduction. I also use Sharpen AI & Gigapixel AI to get the very best out of my image editing. Topaz can be accessed through Lightroom and/or Photoshop and is also a stand alone program meaning both Photoshop and Lightroom are not required.
All the Topaz Labs products have a free trial too. So why not give it a try.

Ambassador for Singh-Ray Filters
I am officially Singh-Ray Filter’s first International Ambassador! So excited to be associated with one of the worlds leading manufacturers of camera lens filters. The filters are truly game changing for my nature photography.
In 2007 I was introduced to Singh-Ray Filters from my long time photography friend, Shane McDermott. Even since the late 2000’s, I have been a fan of one of their most popular filters, the LB (Lighter Brighter) Color Combo. I use the LB Color Combo for a wide variety of my image making needs that include reflection control (wet leaves, windows, etc.), natural color boost (wonderful with greens), reduction in shutter speed (i.e. waterfalls), and more.
Based in Florida, Singh-Ray manufacturers (made in the USA) a wide variety of filters in addition to the LB Color Combo such as the Galen Rowell Graduated Neutral Density filters, as well as, the Mor-Slo ND Filters that come in 5, 10, 15, and yes even a 20 stop – WOW.

Cotton Carrier camera harness system
My newest affiliation is the back saving Cotton Carrier camera harness system. I just received my G3 harness in mid January and already love it. So convenient and easy to use.
Great for a camera body with a 70-200mm or even a 200-500mm lens.

Over the last 5 years I have been using f-stop backpacks exclusively for all my photography adventures. My f-stop Anja bag (perfect for mirrorless & DSLR systems) has been on many, many trips including the Yukon, Colorado, and Italy with very little signs of wear.
Apart from the easy to use and heavy duty nature of the system, f-stop utilizes a heavy duty aluminum frame for stability. This means the bag fits properly and doesn’t wear you out while hiking (from bag movement that your body has to counteract).
To order your very own f-stop bag, and receive a 15% discount, please email myself directly for a code.
Delighted with my pictures. Excellent service with great communication. Only 1 week to receive pictures from overseas. Much quicker service than shopping in my own country! Highly recommend pictures and service to all.
"I have known Dave since early 2021 when I was first interested in joining some photography workshops and Meetups. From the start, he has been so helpful, communicative and always eager to share his knowledge and passion for photography. On a recent wildlife photography workshop of his in the Great Bear Rainforest, I learned a lot from him and greatly improved my wildlife photography with his help!"
"I came to Dave as an amateur photographer (still am) wanting to get into it a little bit deeper. Dave has gone above and beyond that and has given me that little boost of confidence that I needed to get out there. Once he had figured out what kind of photography I wanted to do he helped me with equipment to achieve my goals . Because there’s so much out there it can be very confusing for an amateur photographer but he made it very clear and understandable . Dave has put up with my many questions and has happily answered them. I am definitely going to go back to him for private lessons so I can hone what skills that I have. I would recommend Dave whether you’re a seasoned photographer or amateur."
"Wow, just when you think a photo cannot capture the beauty of the moment you lived through, Dave is able to bring it back to life! Thank you, not only for sharing your amazing talent, but how you handled the experience from my first inquiring phone call, through to the careful shipping process and the genuine follow up and excitement for my 20th Anniversary gift to my wife. Thank you Dave!"
"Thank you Dave for wonderful photos and sending so quickly and checking if I received them. They are fabulous and people always say how gorgeous they are in my home."
