I enjoy taking photos to document my business and personal life.
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 used DSLR, mirrorless, and other cameras. Although I found a passion for filmmaking, photography techniques have come in handy in my web publishing business. 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.

You can find the five most recent articles I wrote about photography here.
