The Nerdy Photographer

Distilled since 1998. Bottled in 2018.

Aged like a fine single malt Scotch.

20 years in the making, The Nerdy Photographer is devoted to a love of photography and making life easier for professional and amateur photographer’s alike.

I recognize that those of us who make a living taking pictures have a tough go of it, and every day there is more competition. But, when we all come together, we can lift everyone up!

You will notice there’s a healthy dose of humor in our writing. I don’t take ourselves too seriously around here. Please keep that in mind…

This site is designed to educate, innovate, inspire, and entertain! Take a look around, and, above all, enjoy yourself!

Why 'NERDY'?

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been what you might call a nerd. I love(d) science, technology, movies, math, building things, Dungeons & Dragons, comic books, music, TV shows…

You want me on your trivia team and/or your zombie apocalypse team.

By labeling this site nerdy, I am embracing the fact that I have, for a very long time, subjected those around me to long winded explanations about things that I love.

You want a deep dive? Well, that’s what you’re going to get here.

Also, you’re going to get a lot of references to movies, TV, music, books, comics, art, comedy, and a whole bunch more.

It’s how my mind works.
