Robert Jackson

I got into photography more seriously just before my 40th birthday and i am 46 now. This spawned an interest in cinematography and shooting video as well. I currently live in Des Moines, IA where I work in IT for an insurance company. I am married with no kids but two dogs, who get photographed regularly.

Depending on what day it is I am either the photographer or the cinematographer, sometimes both. Lately my passion has shifted more to the photography side. I find photography to be more accessible to me on a daily basis. I love creating a great single image and editing those images in Lightroom.

I have recently got into shooting a lot with micro 4/3 cameras. This spring I got the Olympus OMD-EM5 which is an awesome little camera. I am becoming exclusively an Olympus shooter now. My major goal is to continue to understand how to use light to make great photographs. I also am working on improving my composition and subject skills.

In the future I hope to add some more Olympus lenses to my collection, specifically their pro series lenses like the 12-40 2.8 and the 40-150 2.8. Of course I love primes so the 75mm 1.8, 25mm 1.8, and 17mm 1.8 are also on my list of wants for the future.
