Your privacy is important to me.    Below is information on data collection related to this website. Email When you sign up for my newsletter, I collect your email address and (if you choose to provide it) your first name.  That information is used for sending my emails.  I do not sell / provide your information to third parties. Affiliate links I love photography, and I’m sure you do too or you wouldn’t be reading this.  This website and my related social media sites require extensive investment of my time and money.  One very small way I try to recover that investment is through affiliate links.  These links do not affect the price you pay (the vendor just gives me a very small percentage for sending them the business).   I link to Amazon and B&H Photo because that’s where I buy 99% of my photography gear (because they consistently have good prices, quick shipping, are reliable, and above all else have excellent customer service).  I will always give you my clear and honest opinion about any product I discuss without any bias.    I review products I actually use – no one pays me for reviews, and don’t sell sponsored content/posts.  I appreciate you taking the time to visit my site, and don’t want to do anything to compromise the trust you place in me.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
