Photo hosting sites have slowly been sold to countries other than the United States of America. The level of both customer service and functionality diminished greatly so, I decided it was time for a website. One with a better user experience than I've previously had. I'll be adding galleries as I get through my storage drives, so bare with me. The galleries will be sorted by date, so keep on checking back.
The new gallery "collections" will allow viewers to order prints. This is a big topic for me. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I'm not trying to make a salary off firemen. If it wasn't for a certain staircase, I'd still be one. I give my photos (digital) of firefighters out for free. Department Chiefs/Officers/Points of Contact and FM's get the images for free for department use, or distribution to the membership for personal use. This has been and will remain my policy.
Even though they get them for free and can print themselves, many members reach out to me, to have me print the image as a way to support me. Ask my wife, the money earned from this isn't exactly putting food on our table or our kids through college. But it's enough to help cover costs like gas, equipment, web fees, etc. ANYWAY, buy them or not, support me or not, the images will keep coming.
