Robots shooting everything but the kitchen sink. Cameras will be like wearing buttons.

2. If you could shoot with anybody in the world past or present who would it be and why?

Well if you are talking bullets I would have to put Hitler in the bullseye but if we are talking surf photography past Ronnie Burns and present Kelly Slater.

My dad, I sure do miss him.
