Jim Makos Photography and Resources

I am a photography enthusiast. I discovered photography as a hobby when I began taking photos of my daughter when I became a dad. Since then I have been using DSLR, mirrorless and other cameras. Although I found a passion for filmmaking, photography techniques have come in handy. Of course, pictures help tell a story better on the web, thus photography goes hand in hand with my writing online.

I have been uploading my best photos on Flickr.
