I’m a photographer. I’m passionate about photography, the industry, and the gear. My goal is to also be 100% transparent. If I receive free or loaned products from a company, I will let you know in the review. In fact, if you don’t see a notification that says I received a free product or a loaner, realize that these are products I have purchased for myself with my money for my kit. As a photographer, that’s important. These are products I purchased to use for my business. Can they be relied on to deliver when needed?
I will never solicit freebies, reward companies that provide them, or punish companies that don’t. Not every company can afford to do that, and sometimes the best companies have very small budgets. My reviews of products are based on my opinions, my experiences resulting from hands-on tests, and — regardless of my relationship with the companies behind them. My reviews are not always favorable.
